I'm having unexpected diffulty untightening my T20 lower fork tube top nuts - ie. the circular things. They are stuck!

Suggestions for a tool that will not ruin them?

Cheers
Rolf

Hello Rolf,

You could try a strap type wrench, commonly used to unscrew oil filters etc. This is just a sample showing the type I mean.

Cheers Geoff

Wanted to share a tip:

My end solution to this was to get a piece of aluminium pipe, inside diameter 50 mm (as the seal holder has an outside diameter of 50 mm).

A ring of this pipe, with a longitudinal cut through the side, slide down outside the seal holder and then a big pipe wrench on - and voila, no damage, thing loose.

Good way to do it.
