I joined to basically ask Mr. Notsoaveraguy a question regarding the stock OEM cartridges. What tool did you use to remove the cartridges? I ordered a set of Ohlins NIX30s cartridges a while ago and decided this winter to get them swapped out. I was just wondering if you used a racetech or motionpro tool to hold the cartridge.
I see that Motionpro has a 08-0117 tool that fits 41,43,46 &47 mm KYB forks; and racetech has TFCH-03 which works with KYB 46& 48mm open chamber forks. I was wondered if these tools might work for our bikes. I didn't want to purchase the Kawasaki tool to save some money as I'll only need it twice and then from there on out be using the Ohlins tool. This bike is tracked and I know I'll have to crack into the suspension after each season to change out the fork oil.
