Went to Race Tech for fork spring compressor and they wanted $130.00 for something that will be used by the average person maybe three times in a life time or $43.34 added to the price of changing fork springs, valves, etc. Well for $30.00 I got a great working spring compressor to remove just about every kind of spring on just about any inverted fork from www.traxxion.com

Looks Good to me, but I did not see any for a ZX12 and it looks like you need 2 people. Other than that, it is a neat tool

Fork Compressor

Yes, you need a third hand but most of us can always find a friend to help for a cold one and at a $100 savings over RTs, I was all over it. Works on all years ZX12R. A must for anyone who changes adjusting caps, valving, springs, or just tuning on track days.

Hey guys,
I agree that the heavy duty shop model of compressors are the best, hands down if you are going to use them or own a shop. But as I said before, some people will use the tool only a few times in their life and then can sell it for what they bought it for. Also, when I said that one of your friends can help for a cold one, I didn't say anything about Beer or would I ever work on my motorcycle, but on anything impaired in any way. It was just a figure of speech. Also the shops in my area won't rent specialty tools and that is why this is a good deal...
