NEED HELP! Front fork tube spacer

Postby bone7615 » 07:05 am Jul 28 2016

my bushings went to crap in my front suspension so i disassembled them and ordered parts. In the mix I misplaced the spacer that slides over the fork tube in the very bottom of the shock. I don't know exactly what its called but it is the lowest internal part in the front shock. Any ideas I cant find one anywhere.
If you had a choice to date supermodels for the rest of your life or ride dirt bikes, would you choose a 2-stroke or a 4-stroke?

Did you lose them both? If you still have one you might have to have a machine shop make another to match.

Ya I still have the other but I wanna ride I never loose parts so it's frustrating. The shock still hooks up fine it seems like but I'm worried about screwing up the cylinder tube or bending the rod, what do you guys think?

If it's that aluminum part that the allen bolt goes thru in the bottom of your fork. I think your fork cylinder would maybe not stay centered and might damage something. That bushing or whatever it's called fits over the tube and the allen fits thru the slider then thru the bushing and screws into the rod, is that what your talking about. I wouldn't use it with out it.
