I'm currently in the process of servicing my 03 SID Race forks, i need to use a base plate removal tool! asked a few LBS' but no one seems to have one and just say "send it off". Now its not that i'm a tight a*** or anything, but if i can get it out myself, i wont need to send it off and save 90 ish on a service bill from tftuned!

Has:
1. anyone got one i could borrow for a small fee?

2. anyone used anything else as an alternative, or even made a tool capable of removing it?

I can do the service myself, just need to get this bugger out!!!!

Help is as always much appreciated!! 8)
