I have a centre stand, so that should make things a little easier…

i figure if the rear wheel comes of it will rest more on the front wheel and with a normal jack can adjust the swing arem as needed…

going to hunt for the extended T50 torx driver, looks like 100mm is long enough?

120 would be better, that is what I have. It is a deep hole up top.

Yes GP10 , it was about a grand six years ago. I also have GP20 forks. I had them put softer springs in and revalve everything at the service for a 'plusher' ride as i'm getting older and the roads are getting rougher. Very happy with the result. Still good handling but more comfort.

It is either 100mm or 200mm... and the last is way too long, so will order a 100mm, hopefully ok...

Do you need to remove the seat support at all?
I GAVE YOU BAD INFO EARLIER, I RECHECKED AND TOP AND BOTTOM ARE 55's.

I believe the 100mm would be a wee bit too short. The point of the long shank for me was to fit thru the seat support avoiding removal for change out and retorque. My standard drive was too fat to fit thru.
As long as your standard drive is less that about 20mm it should also fit thru the support (I will leave the exact hole measurement to you).
