Saw one guy made a universal holder out of a 1x1 piece of wood, sharpened like a tent stake to wedge onto the damper rod top. So there's that option
The non-leaky one popped fine of course
When I did the forks on my '01 concours, I believe the trick was to get some 5/8" threaded rod, like 24" or so long, with double nuts jammed against each other on each end. The 5/8" nut will give you your 15/16" end, as long as you get a standard nut, don't get X-tra heavy nuts. Use a 15/16" wrench on one end to hold the rod still, and the other jammed nuts fit into your damper rod. I hope it helps.
