How to disassemble Suzuki TC100 forks???

Need to replace the fork seals on my 1974 Suzuki TC100. How do the forks disassemble?

I have a factory shop manual but it doesn't cover disassembly of the forks.

Don't think that's it, the bottom of the forks are solid. There is no through bolt as on other period forks.

you have 73 front end. you get to deal with part #7 - it unscrews. good luck!

There has to be a bolt on the bottom under the axle cap. It's usually a allen head bolt recessed in the fork.

Ah ha, looks like a collar which holds the seal screws onto the lower stanction. Wish it had the normal take apart system...

Well, suggestions on how to unscrew it? Starp wrench?

1: it is possible the top of the collar has notches for a tool - you may want to make a pin wrench or whatever it uses in place of a factory tool...an adjustable pin wrench might work - there is a chance there is no grooves/notches for a tool if so skip to step 2 :)




2: soak it as best as possible. wait for penetrant to work. maybe some heat - i think the only thing you will damage is the seal with heat. strap wrench. if strap wrench is a no go. you could try chain vise grip - with rubber/leather under chain wrench to protect the chrome.

Thanks everyone. I took the forks to buddy's shop, he's a plumber. We wrapped the collar which holds the seal in rubber and clamped it in a pipe threading vice. Used a large screwdriver through the axle hole and turned them right off. On reassembly, put a little anti-seize on the threads for the next time they need to be rebuilt.
