Front fork question

Post by frostoff » 09 Aug 2017, 19:50

I am doing a seal replacement on my forks and looking at the manual there is a special tool
(front fork spacer 07KMZ-KZ30101) can anyone tell me the dimensions of said spacer ie thickness.
Cheers frostoff

I can't think what they mean, can you copy a picture of it and what is it meant to do?

Surely it's just a driving dolly for the seals ?

Typical Honda over engineering things. Its 2mm ffs. Who is measuring their fork oil level to that sort of accuracy in the first place. Also it sits against the dust seal which is rubber not a solid stop.
