Because there are dozens of different brands, designs, sizes of forks and cartridges out on the market for all kinds of motorsports, here is a small sizing guide to help figure out the right fork tool for your ride! (Don’t see one listed that fits yours?? Email me @ requests@JK3D.us and I’ll work with you to see if we can design one that works!)
- Calipers or a Ruler
- Hex Wrench that fits the valving on the fork.
Measuring a size for a Fork/Cartridge that has a flat blade valving adjustment:
Use a calipers to measure the preload hex, Diameter of the valving adjustment/Clicker, and the width of the flat blade gap.
Optionally you can also measure the combined height of the preload hex and the clicker/valve adjustment. (It should be under 9mm, if it is more, please reach out to me at the email address above and I can tweak a design for you)
Measuring a size for a Fork/Cartridge that has a small hex wrench valving adjustment:
Use a calipers to measure the preload hex, and find the hex wrench included or use a multi hex wrench tool to find the right size for the valving on your suspension.
