      Freedom Fox 3 months ago +149

      No he used a screwdriver and Hammer to loosen the lock nut holding the adjustment nut, than used the tool for the adjustment nut,, do the same thing.. way easier then trying to use the tool and smashing your knuckles when it breaks loose Everytime....

    Hell yeah! Drill a hole to use a tool that you likely won't use again. Ever think of tape?

    I see you're using the proper tools to turn the nuts.
    I do the same too. It's like whoever designs these things never thought about doing adjustments w/o loosing skin and blood every time.

    • M.V. Media
      M.V. Media 3 months ago +3

      ‘Full Ronnie Mac’ dude, just drill a 2/3mm hole in the fender.
      Your bike is a workhorse, not a showpony

    • Moto Bevy
      Moto Bevy 3 months ago +11

      @M.V. Media still tho why drill holes in ur brand new fender when there tons of better options? I'd see the hole every day if it was my bike and be like damn it's not even from a crash or anything that's lame af. Just bc it's not a show bike doesn't mean you can't put in work to keep it as clean for as long as possible.

      @alexdouglas7407 tape could have done the the same thing and is more practical because it's faster and no hole

    • S S
      S S 3 months ago +1

      @Motorcycle Rebuilds The tool Jay used has a pin type thing that needs a hole to fit it into.
      Yes tape works good.
      My KTM actually cames from the factory with a small raised line on the outside of the fender for setting sag purposes (so the same spot, locationis used everytime). It cannot be seen if randomly looking at it.

    • Jeremy Border
      Jeremy Border 3 months ago +2

      Realistically you could get like a junk plastic if you cared about the hole just put the junk one on for sag, then reinstall

    This tool is for racers because they constantly have to adjust suspension settings.
    Also, the string isn’t holding down the suspension lol
    It’s measuring the distance for setting sag properly.
    This tool is awesome

    I used to tune suspensions as well, however I used a heavy duty paper clip instead of the hook t9 not have to drill the hole in the customers bikes, furthermore the hole or clip must be attached to the center of gravity, not the sides and also the sag is adjusted with the actual dude in full gear, not you pushing it down SMH
