Hello, I'm replacing my fork seals and during the re assembly I can not get the bolt at the bottom of the fork leg to tighten. It just spins.

Any help much appreciated!

Air impact wrench just spins it faster. This fork is not like my KTM 950 or dirt bikes. No cartridge on the bottom with a nut. Just a damper tube that spins.

Any other suggestions?

Fork seal

Hi!

Is it the same behavior on both sides?

How strong/easy and how far the bolt is going into the cartridge when the cartridge itself disassembled?

Maybe the threat of screw is not ok?

Make sure damper and centering sleeve are seated properly and that bottom bolt has not cross-threaded or has any binding in thread.
