Have I gone mad, or is the K5+ cartridge tool diagram posted by V_i_c_i still in the downloads section? I could have sworn I looked at it recently but now I can't find it. Gonna need to make one soon...

Oh yes, thank you. I didn't expect it to be in "Manuals", I was looking in "General". Sorry about that.

You can see a couple of pics of Del's DIY tool by clicking on the post link. Maybe @Del could give us the measurements.

I did something similar but welded a socket onto the end of it

you need the later one with the welded bent washer on it
col as del's is for the earlier models .

just for info on either tool the pipe needs to be big enough to clear the nut on the damper rod i think thats 12mm but will check and modify the post .
 :cheers:

As to the pic I attached, the guy owns a K3,so this should work. Dimensions: 40cm long, 22mm outer diameter, the 2 noses are 3mm wide and 5mm deep. 2 noses are a bit easier to make than 4.

Gerry @JIMHMR
There are 3 different fork tubes and 2 different cartridge setups on the gsx1400 over the years .
If you do a search of the suspension section you will see pictures of the differences between them all.

Given this is your first post, it would be appreciated if you would kindly introduce yourself in the Introductions section, thanks http://gsx1400owners.org/forum/index.php?board=20.0
