I'm in Guelph and doing a bearing replacement. Is there anyone nearby who would loan the 6 point tool for removing the top yoke?

You can email me at brucedwilson at gmail dot com.

Or make one from a 1" pipe nipple (if I correctly remember the pipe size). Make it with two tabs. It'll be slightly small, so squeeze it in a vise so it is slightly oval and the tabs fit into the slots on the lock nuts.

That, or a C-wrench (I think that's what they're called...). The things your dad used to adjust spring preload on those ancient twin-shock bikes.

Can you measure the OD of the nut? I have a bunch of different wrench sizes and I'm not too far from you.

Yeah, inch-'n-a-quarter, not one inch pipe nipple.

The hammer & drift punch will probably deform the tabs on the lock nuts. On my bike there wasn't room to swing a hook spanner. Maybe cut part of the handle off a hook spanner and hit that with the hammer.

Yes, it will. The metal is fairly soft.

You could probably swing a conventional wrench if you removed the fuel tank.

It's a pin wrench socket. They are special tools for the right diameter.


Probably the best you could do would be a pin wrench. Spanner = wrench in British English.

'Pin wrench socket' - thanks. I have a few of the spanners (Canucks are trilingual; both englishes and french :bom_laugh4:) lying around and I offered them to the original poster.
