I finally got to the forks this past weekend. This "tool" worked perfectly for loosening/tightening the damper rod bolt. Naturally, I did not have enough fork oil so I only lowered one fork. But, it was simple enough to do. The oil that I drained was red and did not have much, if any, odor to it. I'm guessing it was ATF. I replaced it with 10# weight fork oil (which smells like 90w gear oil). Now, I need another 6 oz. to do the other fork and complete the job.
