Home made Motorcycle spring compressor


Recommended Posts

Old car brake discs have a use!


first you start with two rear brake discs off an audi a4! other brands are available!


and two lengths or threaded bar and some nuts and washers!

Stick one disc in a vice and make the hole a few mm larger! a sanding flap wheel with drill attachment works great

then you take the other disc and hmmm lets say a rear shock!!

This was a spare shock I had for the FJR I am thinking of putting a heavier spring on mine as its a bit soft!


the hard part is getting the spring off but with this set up it was a doddle 8-)


can't beat home made tools
