    Question Yoke bolt tool?


    is there such a tool to remove the yoke bolt off the top triple clamp? Used an adjustable wrench last weekend, and chewed it up a bit.

    That takes a 32 or 36mm 12 point socket. Depends on the year GSXR, your's is the 32mm.

    Why? Vice grips and a hammer did just fine.

    that depends on how you want the bike to handle.

    I slid the forks up in both my ZX and my Tuono

    sorry...

    just picked up a 32mm 12-point socket last night and a 1/2" drive ratchet. 3/8" drive only go up to 21mm or 22mm that I saw. I have the 3/8" --> 1/2" drive adapters as well as 1/2" --> 3/8" adapters, but i figured I should have a 3/8" and 1/2" driver ratchet to fill up my new tool boxes anyways.
