    I need a spring compressor for bike shocks and all I can find in CM are car ones that are too large

    Does anyone have one I can use or can point me where to buy one?

    It is for an R-1 shock with a custom made spring

    My spring ID is 55 mm x 80 OD.Top keeper is 70mm OD

    Looks like your tool will work so can I come over tomorrow and give it a go? Please give me a ring to discuss at 084 809 6610
