Adding Front Fork Oil


Post by Dean » Sun Sep 28, 2008 4:38 pm

I have adjustable triple tree forks on my 1959 panhead w/ sidecar. I am trying to add fork oil and I think I have located the breather and the plug where I would do that. It appears that I need a very large flathead screwdriver to unscrew the plug. Is that correct or is there another tool for this?

a "drag link socket"(basically, a big screwdriver blade for your rathcet wrench) should do it.

Harbor Freight has several really inexpensive sets.
