This is the kit as delivered. I outlined the tool in red.

Ok cool. So basically you get everything you need to disassemble except for that stupid grub screw. What were they thinking!? Regardless, it's gotta be done. The suspension is just too harsh from the factory to live with.

What size drill bit did you use to drill out the grub screw?

For those that had it done, where did you take it and what did they charge if you don't mind saying?

Thx.

I got the same kit but it came without the tool. I wondered what the extra space in the packing was for

Hello

OK, so, this tool is used to unscrew the screw at the top of the inner tube (see pic below). But, you get no tool to dismount the inner tube from the fork stub, after drilling the grub screw. It seems that the inner tube is screwed in the fork tube and you need a tool to hold the inner tube while you unscrew it.

The inner tube is screwed into the Stub and fixed with glue and that famous grub screw.
Clamp the stub in a vice and heat up the stub (eg with hot air gun). Take care not to damage the inner tube when unscrewing it. After assembly (you better use glue again) you may want to repaint the stub black.

You will still need some sort of tool to unscrew the tube from the fork bottom. I was lent a tool he had made from a UK owner. This is it -

The peg on the inside locates in one of the holes in the fork tube. You need another bar, not shown, to give you 2 hands to apply pressure with.

This is all of the OEM gubbins -
Can you remove just the springs from both forks with the forks still attached to the bike - removing handle bars etc ?

Once you have removed the fork caps and unscrewed the metal cap in the RH leg probably yes. The damper rod in the LH leg will want to fall down inside the fork leg so you may need to attach a wire to it to hold it. You'll also have to make sure that the bike is well supported with the weight off the front wheel because the suspension will collapse when you undo the fork caps. I would take the forks off the bike to change the springs.
