Default Ricky Forks Stripdown

Hi Guys

My Ricky is almost done,

Full bearings throughout,alloy motor mount,balanced gyro,custom steering setup,19t motor,quantum esc,

And i`ve just turned my attention to the suspension,

I need to remove the slop from the fork lowers but don`t know how to get them apart,

Anyone got any tips?

Toyrannasaur used to do an upgrade kit but i guess these are long gone?

Cheers
Adrian

Sorry about the late post I been busy! I'm sure you already got these apart, but just in case......Heat the Aluminum fork cap with a torch, being careful not to melt the decal placed nearby. They use a type of Loctite on 'em. I improved my forks by machining down some Teflon lower fork sliders (The internal part that screws onto the leg,) and made it just a thou or 2 smaller than the inner diameter of the tube. I also machined new fork caps, and made another Teflon slider so you didn't have the metal-on-metal thing goin' on. I did have some kits, and a few with Titanium legs, but those are long gone. All I can recommend, if you have a lathe or know someone, is to ream out the fork cap a bit & make a plastic or Delrin slider between the leg & the tube. I also found that a fork brace does wonders for de-slopping the front end! I don't have any more, but Dave Mincin at Dammachines.com should have some. If not, try 2wheelhobbies.com. And let's see some pics! Chris
