Bandit GSF1250S/SA, GSX1250FA, GSX650F Fork Cartridge Compression Valve Body Piston Clamping Block
This handy-dandy little tool from MetrickMetal allows you to easily clamp and hold the compression valve body in your forks cartridges in any bench vice when removing and installing the 6 mm bolt that secures the valve assembly to the piston when installing Race Tech Gold valves in your forks.
The machined surface of the aluminum valve body can be easily damaged if it is not properly held with something that precisely clamps the machined areas on the valve body, so that it does not turn when removing or installing the 6 mm valve assembly retaining bolt, for if the surface of the valve body is scored or damaged enough from being improperly clamped, it may have to be replaced, and the piston is not sold separately and only comes as part of a complete cartridge assembly, which are quite expensive, or you would have to have a new one custom machined, which again will not be cheap.
