KAYABA cartridge holding tool Yamaha
I was gonna buy a tool for this but once I looked up inside the fork tube I realized that I could make one pretty easy.
I have heard of pipes, screwdrivers, broom handles, and bubble gum.
Ok, maybe not bubble gum :D
So, I grabbed a piece of 1" x 1" x 1/8" wall square tubing about 10" long that I left over from a rack project.
A few minutes on the bench grinder and a few more minutes with a file and I had this ready to go.
