Well, as you can see from the photo, the pin wrench I'm using is a "size 6" from Gedore, meaning the pins are 6mm in diameter. As I mentioned, for this to work nicely, I still had to grind a little bit off of the body of the tool (not the pins). The holes in the back of the stator are actually quite big, maybe something like 10mm in diameter.

All in all, I think you would be better off with something like this: click!

Cheers,

Tseta

i did see that one, but if i can get away with spending less then that is always better.
i have never needed a tool like this, and don't mind buying one, but don't want to spend $$ that i will never get back out of the tool if the cheaper version will work.
(i am a cheap bastard)

any idea of the distance between the 2 holes? from what i gather, that is what the 2", 3", 4" is referring to.

thanks for the reply

The center-to-center distance of the holes is about 95mm (by my memory and looking through some old sketches...).

I slapped a tool together and your 95 MM spacing looks pretty close to what I did {94.73}...

Hi there, Tseta, good to hear from you.
So you're in Siberia ... worth a visit ... maybe on a newer Ktm.

Privet Tonicu!

Siberia is definitely worth a visit. Regarding the choice of equipment and transport, I've actually been toying with the idea of buying an Ural or other similar soviet steed from here and riding it home once the time comes.

Cheers,

Tseta

Hey Tseta,
Good idea, when I was in Siberia I swear I saw Ural and ISH parts in the food stores? Maybe also in Mongolia. I rode with a Belgian guy and his girlfriend who bought a Ural in Ulan Bator and rode it west across the Gobi, then across Russia and finially to Belgium.

They had some problems but the fixes were always easy.

That sounds like it would be a blast! I think I would jump on an opportunity to do something like that.

As far as the rebuilds you did, I am impressed. Great work! Very inspirational.

Many thanks for the pics and tips. I have new springs coming in from Slavens Racing next week. Is there a common preference on oil weight on these forks? I was thinking of Torco 10wt.

Not 10 wt...way to heavy.

The OEM specification was/is SAE 5. The "factory-approved" oil supplier of that era was, if I recall correctly, Shell, with their Advace-line of motorcycle-specific lubrication products. Motorex came into play only later. Some good reading about suspension oils here - SAE 5 is not always SAE 5, surprise surprise...
