Default Can't remove inner tube (stuck oil seal ?)

     

I've been trying to rebuild my 99cr250 forks and can get the innner tube from the outer tube . The Oil seal seem to a stuborn mofo!!!! I just tried putting a steel rod down the the fork and beat it out even that had no succes!!
Is there a trick I don't know about here ?
I followed the factory manual to the T along with the Pivot works Video on there site .

Help!

Did you remove the clip just in front of the seal??
Let's hope you didn't do any damage with that steel rod.
Try heating the seal/bushing area with a hair dryer first, then just like the video, slide bang the inner & outer tubes..
The Pivot works video is for closed cartridge forks, here's a few vids for open cartridge forks..


Part 1

part 11

Yup- clip is off ,I tried heating it , adding more heat , Doing the slide hammer deal does'nt work as the inner tube gets stuck .
I wish it went just like the video , but Something is amiss in this fork and it did'nt .
I put an offer(ebay) on some 98 forks and and have 99 set on my watch .

Will crf450 forks will on this bike ?

Are the CR forks 47mm? If they are, the CRF forks should work fine. The biggest difference is going to be the spring rates and of course the internal valving will be a little different, but they mechanically they should be fine.

Sometimes the 2 bushings will wedge themselves inside of each other and then the fun begins!

Worst case scenario when I couldn't get the forks to extend or retract I had to cut the outer apart. Not a cheap fix. It has only happened to me once a long time ago before I started using heat to loosen things up first. Tdub
