Did you try an impact driver? Also warming the threadlock will help it lose its grip.
Not sure we are on the same page here. Right fork seal is stuck in the slider. Will not come out when tube is used as a slide hammer.
Yep, thought you were having trouble removing the drain bolt.

Maybe the idea is like 'belt and suspenders', they want no chance. Mine had the thread lock, I put more on mine after cleaning old out of threads, etc.

The 2 "drivers" I use for the bushing and seal is; bushing, 1.5" pvc with a circ. saw blade width, cut out length wise. Spread pipe to fit tube and drive bushing into place; seal, use a 1.25" pvc coupling (next to seal) and a length of 2" pipe for driver. The "cream" you have would indicate coolant ...

The FI bikes don't use the units the Aspy do. The FI bikes use one, from the pictures I've seen. Should be able to search the forum and find the info. Search Se-i and LTD, that's the FI bikes. Maybe someone has the info tagged?

Not sure who you're dealing with, but Western Honda, Bike Bandit and Partzilla all show it's available.............

Mine has the micro cracks, they appear to be in the contrast color of the main color. Might be due to they're cracks in the decals that were placed and then cleared over/ I've not noticed the cracks in the base color.

How are you keeping the assembly from turning, it almost looks like the cap is dragging on what's below it?

Just removed mine, left it in the triple trees till cap was loose. Torque should be 16 ft./lbs.

Good luck :)

The image with the fan; that is an added wire, probably going to an added switch to manually run the fan.

If you look at the last picture you posted, showing wires exiting the tree. Those clear(ish) covers just poking out are the plugs.

Regarding the oil leaking out....if you have the fork cap on, it might be leaking out the cap 'o' ring, if not then new seals and dust caps. I'm in the process of refurbing mine after 65k miles and one dust/seal change. The dust seals were all cracked/split. Wonder if Honda is selling (at the time) ...
