Thanks for all your help, Ive got the nut off now but my forks dont look like anything in the manual. i know they have a seperate bit for Speedtriples but the damper, bushes and damper spring on mine are nothing like the manual.After reading Mot's last post, I think that we have terminology confusion going on here. The tool that I mentioned is for the damper ROD front fork. This is the non-adjustable fork.
The adjustable fork has a damper CARTRIDGE, then you compress the fork to remove the nut or use Mot's NASCAR lug wrench. I use an air powered version of the same thing.
We don't have any T3 Speed Triples around here so I didn't know which front end was on it.
