A solution!

Right on Frank, thanks for the report! Love the 800GS but the forks need some major improvement, gotta get some.

I agree on the impact trick. It only takes a quick pulse of the trigger and it tightens right up. Done it myself this way and seen other, real mechanics, use the impact wrench as well. Its kinda a fail proof method due to the fact that the tube spins once its tight.
