Tool needed for 76 YZ125X forks. #1
Anyone know where to get the tool for a 76YZ125X to hold the fork cylinder to get the bolt out of the lower fork?

Link below doesn't give a clear view but looks like it steps up at the top. If you look down in there, what do you see. Is there a way of holding the damper. I'm guessing you still have the air forks or original tops but could you add some stiff old springs to give it something to bind on while turning the allen bolt. Better idea might be to use an air wrench--rattle gun, & hold the forks topped out while rattling the bolt out so topping it out will pull against the underside of the damper--or the topping out spring & damper so might help.

I ended up using a long extension with a 16 point 13mm socket which fit perfect on the 12mm slotted cylinder. Used impact on the allen bolt and both forks are apart. All of the parts to rebuild them came in this week.

I have an original Yamaha air gauge/ filler, to fit those forks if you are interested.

If your going to walk on thin ice....you might as well dance
