So I'm tearing down my forks to replace the seals and paint the bottoms. But at the moment I'm stuck with one seal off and the other isnt budging. It's being a total cunt. and to top it off every time I pull on the tube it gets stuck at full extension, so i have to tap it on the floor to get it moving again. taking a break for the night before it really pisses me off. gonna give it a lil heat in the am and see how that goes.

Any other ideas?

Happens sometimes. CAREFULLY put a drywall screw threw the seal and either use a slide hammer on the screw or pull on it with a par of channel locks.

Any luck?
tried the heat, no luck. tried the screw, wont screw in. kinda scared tp try harder cuz i dont wanna scratch the tube. gonna pick up a torch tomorrow and give it a try. if all else fails the dealership on 12th street said theyd get it out for like $20. oh and btw, fuck the local kawi shop. guy told me he didnt care if it was just the seal removal he'd still charge me for the full rebuild.
