The shaft tubes were tappered such that I did not need this so I have a $5 boat anchor for sale. It was a minor challenge to confirm that the my forks are 45 mm. I sense this is a great thing to have if you have to go over irregular edges. My Motion Pro Seal Driver despite beautiful construction and generally working extremely well was not deep enough to drive one of the guide bushinings completely so you have to drive it with the seal - which I do not think is the greatest.

Don’t replace fork seals without this. Takes all the concern out of damaging the seal when initially sliding them onto the fork.
We've all used electrical tape on the fork tube to protect new seals from damage during installation (or nothing if you're a gambler) but for such a small price you'd be a little foolish not to pick these up. It's a very small price to pay to guarantee that the new fork seals aren't damaged while sliding them onto the fork tube.
Think about how you'd feel if your forks ended up leaking, paying for a new seal (or two), and doing the job twice.
On the downside, they are bit fragile and need to be used with care. Unfortunately this is the nature of the beast since they must be thin enough to remain the correct diameter for the seals to fit over. Just use plenty of oil or grease on the bullet, the seal, and the fork tube. I recommend applying grease UNDER the bullet as well so it's easier to remove without risk of damage.
A must have for the DIY. Works like it's supposed to. It fits the shock snug and they are a little thin so you can't man handle them you have to take your time when putting them on. Much easier than a bag, condom, tape, or anything else we've tried in the past.
Make sure to order all sizes they offer, not all come in kit.
No more wax paper or electrical tape, just slide it on then slide on seals. Great product for the DIY guy.
Plastic cracked on the second fork. So I
ended up using tape anyway.
I used the 47mm on a 12 kx250f and it worked so good i got the 48mm for my 14 kx250f. I read a previous comment saying it didn't work, but I'm not sure how it didn't work for them. Maybe they tried pushing it on too far...
goes on ok but was hard to remove . I am wondering if I ordered the wrong size. I had to use a rubber mallet to get it to slip off. it does save the seals but electric tape may be easier.
Bought the 48 mm ones to put on my 48 mm showa sff forks, and it didn't even fit over it, I tried to name it on, but it just cracked and broke, poor build, they should make rubber ones
