(Fixed) Lower damper bolt won’t come out
Well I have been continuing
My complete rebuild of the 929rr and hitting every speed bump along the way. The forks have given me trouble on pretty much every turn except for the install of the racetech spring and gold valve. So today I was reassembling the forks and chugging along and when I put the fluid in one of them it just started pouring out the bottom. I used new crush washers and torqued to spec but I guess something was wrong because now I can’t get the bolt to go in or come out. I have taken them apart and put them back together 4 times today. It doesn’t
matter if I compress the spring a
ton, pull on the damper rod, use an impact it will not break free. I put a wood shin down in to the top of the damper to keep it from spinning which it did. The only possible thing that could be happening after all the steps I have taken is the compression valve itself is spinning. Does anyone know how I could get this stupid thing apart.
