Folks,

I'm having problems removing the threaded ring from the bottom of the fork tube. The holes in this ring are not spaced to allow use of the pin wrench included in the tool kit.

I'm making up a pin wrench that will fit this (the diameter of the holes are very close to 1/8 inch). There is not a lot of thickness in the ring. Does it remove easily or is a lot of force required? Any other tips, cautions, etc. on getting this out?

Thanks for the insights.
