Hey Bulls

Can someone give me the low down on how to make your own fork feeler gauge. I think I picked up some grit on the Soafala ride.
Justo mentioned it to me but it was during a rest in one of the rocky sections and my brain was still vibrating in my head. He mentioned a coke bottle but what shape do I cut it into and is it as simple as sliding it up insdie and giving it one full rotation.

Cheers

Hey Scott I see sutto's have them for sale little packs they seem cheap, I will pick one up and mail it to you if you wish. Once you have the shape etc you could make some and match a material as such

In the end, it's not going to matter how many breaths you took, but how many moments took your breath away

Well STM I sent to fork cleaners where is the write up?? :laugh: :laugh:

Here is something I found elsewhere, I reckon your write and pictures will be heaps better :laugh:


Before you throw your precious cash and time into fitting new seals, you may find there’s simply some dirt caught in the seal. Try grabbing a tearoff and cutting it into a hook shape, then simply slide it under the seal and drag it around.
