You need a spanner wrench that holds the dampenning tube assembly from the top. I think for your bike it's the one with the four tits on it. You make it out of 3/4" pipe with a "T" handle one it. Not the same as the XR650R. But, it comes apart the same. You have to remove the spring and the dampenning rod lock nut. Different tools but, same concept as the XR650R forks look on this site for the XR650R

I did not do the valve install myself but to put .02 into it use 7.5 weight oil not the 10 as RT says. It made a huge diff in the responsiveness!
