For which model of goldwing is this for? I just replaced the seals on my GL1800 and did not need a spring compressor at all.. Are you sure you need one?

Many people have manufactured their own fork spring removal tools using pieces of wood and threaded rod. I decided that I do this often enough that I would spring for the actual Honda tool. It works on several different models of Honda motorcycles (including all Goldwings) and is a quality (if not overpriced) tool. I bought mine for $138 from Cyclemax. The part number of the tool is: 07KMF-MT20300

If you visit the Cyclemax OEM Parts section and type in the part number of the tool, it will come up with the item and price.

The tool has a reversible driver on the end of the threaded rod, which can be reversed by pulling it off the rod and pushing it back on the way you require.

Cyclemax Charges $181 shipping $15.00 today when I checked. Partzilla.com has it for $175 Shipping $17.78 Two best prices I found.

Wow, Honda has really jacked the price up on it. I'm glad I got mine when I did.

I did mine with a few jigs......unless you're doing progressives for a living....I gotta go with Thrasherg........too easy to do taking your time without the tool
