I am in the process of taking the forks apart to change the seals and oil but ran into a problem. I can get the fork cap off but I can not get the jam nut loose to pull it off as well. Any tips?
It's an 06r. I tried that to no avail. I finally got it off with the electrical tape method a couple posts up. It's not the easiest of designs Yamaha came up with for sure.What year forks? On the newer ones where I can not get a crescent wrench on the cap assembly (06+) I put a socket on the preload adjuster and nudge the jam nut loose. I use the same method tightening the jam nut after double checking the rebound clicks.
