This house has been neglected since my first back surgery and it is sad shape between two back surgeries, a bicep surgery and being in school 4+ years. It is taking a lot of work and money to get it back to not being embarrassed to let anybody come over LOL.

I still am going to try to get things done as I can. I ordering a piston kit soon so I can send the cylinder to be bored. I also tried to rebuild the forks (I have all the parts to do the job) and I couldn't get the caps out. I fear I may strip them before they come out.

I had trouble getting my 1986 rm125 caps off, so i mounted them back into the triple clamps and used an impact gun on low psi. I did the low psi because the caps are aluminum. Maybe give that a shot, and if you use the right socket you shouldnt strip anything out.

Iv'e done that before but you relly need a single hex socket as the multi hex sockets tend to round off the aluminium cap.

remember heat is your friend...  recently I started to use a heat gun instead of a torch...  you'd be surprised how hot you can get it with a heat gun.

The heat gun was my next step. Hopefully soon I can find time to have a few hours working on it. I need the garage therapy :) .

Sorry for lack of updates. I haven't had a chance to tackle those forks yet. I am thinking this Friday is the day. Things slowed down at work finally and I am back to working 4-10's so I'll have some time again.

Heat was a fail LOL. Those things are really stuck. Next step is the impact but I have to make sure I have a socket that will fit properly.

Doesn't aluminum expand faster than steal with temperature?
If so then heat on the caps will make them tighter not looser.  Maybe try ice.

Heat and shrink.
Heat the caps then dunk them in cold water.
Have done it many times with stuck outboard motor parts.
