I've just received my Nitron TVT22 cartridges and while going through the service manual it states I need the following special tools to remove the old cartridge:
09940-93110
09940-94922
09940-94930
09940-52841
09940–30221
Anyone know what these tools actually are and how important they are to the job? Is there a way to do this without those tools? Cheers!

Try RaceTech. They show 8 fork tools. Apart from the fork spring compressor you either don’t need the other tools, or you can make them yourself. I’ve stripped the forks on gsxr1000’s I’ve owned every 10,000 kilometres. The forks aren’t as intimidating as they appear.

Have always managed to get by as well without any special tools as well. Easier, probably, but not mandatory in my experience. Google them or read the service manual to get an idea of what they do to see if you think you need them. Or just want them. :) But honey I just HAD to have them it even says so in the directions!

You need fork compression tool to access jam nut ,I bought one for £70 [ laser product } 09940–30221this damping rod holding tool you can get from motion pro [ 08-0117 part number ] at lot cheaper £30 and I also got motion pro damping rod bleed tool [5 in 1 tool . it all cost about £130 British pounds . I could have got them fitted for £150 but I like doing my own work and now own the tools .The big question is will I use them again . 😀

Did you get the same nitron tvt22 cartridges? I got them fitted but there’s not guide for the spring so as soon as they compress, they bow out and hit the inside of the fork tubes. I ended up having to get custom nylon guides made up to fix it. Seems like a pretty big flaw from Nitron....

No mate I got maxton SD 25 cartridges . They where plug and play all I needed to use was the original damping rod bolt ( at bottom of fork ) and a new washer . IMG_20201104_101554.jpg
