Anyone have one? The Race Tech Universal Fork Spring Compressor, the portable one and not the foot operated one? I know I can buy one for 140-150 ish range, but I want to build one, not ghetto either. I have plenty of scrap square steel for inner and outer, about 3 foot of threaded rod with about 6 nuts that fit it, couplings, and washers. I also have some other bits I can use for the upper clamp, including a 3 way C-clamp. I want to build one, just to see if I can pull it off well enough. Now, I can take a fork leg I actually have laying around, crack the cap and measure how far it should extend and how far it should compress, or estimate, build, and hope its enough for any application. Anyone have one and would be kind enough to measure the outer length and inner length of square tube down to the lower fork base full extended? Also would not mind seeing some pics of how theirs works, or apart(not sure it comes apart) My thought is inner square tube, outer square tube, the threaded rod through the middle of both, lower inner tube with a steel nut welded inside at the top, the rod threads into it just enough at full extended, so the lower square tube moves up and down as tighten and loosen to compress the fork, but enough that at fully compressed up against the L the threaded rod is bottomed out or barely not. Then at the top, two nylon lock nuts on either side of the upper outer tube plate, the threaded rod fits through. Then a washer between coupling and a lock nut on top of it to prevent it from coming off during twisting clockwise or counter. Would tack a spot weld on it, but if I ever want to take it apart, much easier without it welded. Then the bottom piece, that the lower fork sita on, would be a piece of square tube same size as the inner welded to the lower inner, in a L shape. For the upper spring/spacer clamp, like on GSXR forks, use the 3 way c-clamp without the flex feet. I was actually thinking of welding a bolt to the upper outer tube face so I can move it in and out, or just to take apart..not sure yet because it would have to be pretty exact that the bolt does not interfere with the upper fork tube, so that might not work. Probably have to weld it to the upper outer or but it on the bolt, tack a weld and cut any extra threads off. I can also do an arm in a square C with two bolts threaded through it, and the bolt ends tapered real nice, but that's more work to build. I have thought about going to the dealers suspension tech and trying to get them to let me measure it and look at it, but not sure that will go over good considering its cold season so desperate for any work they can get, let alone some guy like me doing my own, and close friends and family for nothing or next to nothing. Thanks for anything!...........I have a feeling I am going to get a talking to about just build it the hard way and earn the failures and success's of building a good working one, especially if any Race Tech guys are lurking, or sponsored by, etc. but its worth a shot....... I like to measure twice or thrice and cut once, so getting working measurements would be nice.
