    fork race removal...

    What are you using for an at home removal tool? I'm looking to buy one and was curious as to what everyone was using.

    screwdriver and hammer works just fine on aluminum races. you just have to be a little more careful. otherwise, buy the proper tool.

    It's the motor, not the bike, right?

    I don't like using a screwdriver. I use a punch with my hammer.

    Take a slip joint pliers and adjust it so the ends of the pliers just contact the race. Tap the pliers with a hammer and it comes right off.

    I like to rip them off with my teeth. It hurts a little, but the fork soon gets over it.
