I did make one from PVC pipe but didn't work so well
I designed a beautiful seal driver for my F650 out of 2" schedule 80 PVC pipe but I had the shop where I work put the pipe on a lathe and turn 3/4" of the end down to the perfect diameter for my seals. It was too big without doing so.
If you're looking for stock sized PVC to potentially be used as a driver don't forget to check PVC couplings and plastic electrical conduit as well since the electrical conduit comes in different sizes than PVC pipe for water, etc.
I use all of above (PVC is simply awesome) but in some cases I purchased proper drivers.
I also use PVC plumbing pipe or electrical conduit to modify spring rate by cutting off section of spring and installing PVC spacer, just pulled apart my race bike fork that was done in 1999 and PVC spacer is still in tact.
I think it was a male adapter I used.didn't have a lathe used a file.I sent you pm,s last week don't know if you are getting them or anyone else either
My drivers are cast gold!Beat that suckers!
we all know cast gold it the best: soft heavy metal that does not corrode! wish I thought of that before I sent in all of my scrap to one of those TV ad places
That's fine for conventional forks, but upside down forks, need a split design. That's why I cut a small piece out of the old seal for my KTM. I made a nice driver for my DR650 out of plastic pipe stock. I had to put it an the lathe and do some customizing.
Everyone's got their own Pachaug.....an Italian version.

That place reminds me of our loop in Windsor, It has maybe 5 rocks in it, all loam, sand and hills. 5 miles of work out bliss. We would do it forward and backwards.. Now ABB wants to build 3200 homes and a shopping center... So they threw us out...
why is every thread I am subscribed to suddenly become political?
I just wanna ride...
Feel the same way about seal drivers...
I feel same way about this weather... and the cold my offspring brought from school
There are lots of people here that deal with the politics so you can ride though...
I hate politics too, but it's becoming a necessary topic...sorry just my .02
Enough of that shit, lets go ride!
New AC10 tire mounted, bike ready to go... but I'm sick and getting sicker...
Gas gas fork
That phillips screw can be replaced with an air bleeder. Removes any air pressure.

Big rubber cap at the bottom covering compression valve?
Yes says rebound on knob.compression was under plug in bottom.does the .51 mean 51.mm how are they measured?
