Need to do my fork seals on the new (to me) bike. I know I need a thin wrench to take off the top cap after unscrewing it from the upper leg so I'll have to grind down a wrench to do it. I'd like to know the size wrench I need so I can just go get one and grind it down before getting everything apart.

I am thinking that it will be either a 12 or 13 mm but could be as low as a 10. :bonk:

Anyone know what size wrench that is?

Thank you!

A standard 17mm will work. Just pull the spring down a little.
