Destroying a hammer and on top of that having to cut it?I just use a socket (size of the hex on the cap) + an extension as a handle. gives you a good sense of the direction you are screwing so it's harder to cross thread.You can take out a lot of your guess work by unscrewing slowly the cap (without the spring) and making a small mark of the postion where the last thread ends. Both on cap and triple clamp. When you screw in the cap, start your twisting just a couple milimeters before your mark so that the thread catches immediately after 1/4 of a turn.Works every time
Any other tips? I'm going to try the mallet thing tomorrow. I am assuming my springs are good since I can't get the caps in easily…?Started my first fork oil change hours ago...
