This is what was attached to the bolt inside. A 15/16th socket with a coupling that fits. Now you can turn the bolt on the bottom while this keeps the nut secure and the fork itself keeps the entire thing from rotating.

I like your style there WunGun.  Smiley

I use a long piece of all thread and two nuts locked on each end.  Just saves me from having to use extensions and fishing bolts and crap out of the fork.  Same concept though.

Prepping the fork tubes for paint and rebuild, we used the "broom handle" method of disassembly and it worked great!

Thanks again to this forum!

I found a different way to do this w/out buying any new tools... it just so happens that the rear axle nut is the right size to hold the inner damper tube on the inside.

You'll need a spare rear axle with the hex head end, a nut, and the axle nut.
You'll also need a 14mm socket, a 12" extension and ratchet.
And maybe some wire if you don't want flip the fork tube upside down to get your tools back.

I had another nut w/out the thread locker to use as a lock nut, using the rear axle as the bolt, spin the lock nut on then the axle nut and torque them onto the end of the axle.

Now you can wire the 14mm socket and extension together with the axle.

I put a 8mm hex wrench in a vise on the floor, sat the fork tube assembly on it, dropped the axle/extension assembly onto that and turned it with the ratchet.

Easier than doing it with the broom stick.

There is even an easier way. After you remove the fork from the triple clamp, simply replace the fork cap. The compression from the spring will retain and hold the damping rod while you remove the hex bolt from the bottom. Once the bolt is out (don't forget, it's gonna leak oil) you can remove the fork cap and dump out the parts into a bucket (the bucket is there to capture the remaining oil).
