    I kinda knew I had to totally go in these forks, but I asked the lazy question anyway. Thanx again guys.

    When you start drilling, be aware that there are some directions out there that specify four holes...drill out the original two and add two more. This is NOT necessary and is pointless extra work on a TW. Just drill out the original holes to 1/4 inch, deburr and carefully clean out cuttings before re-assembling.
    And, yes, it's all worth it.

    Not drilling the rods for emulators would turn the forks into solid rods of pain. LOL

    I just found out there is a tool needed to remove the staction tubes. Anyone know where to get one?

    If you have a lathe, NAPA sells a 19mm hex head with 3/8" drive, but you have to turn down the O.D. a few mm to get it to slide into the fork tube. The bonus there is that it's dead centered every time you put it in there.

    Get a 3-5" long bolt to fit the 19 mm nut. Put 2 on and lock them as hard as possible against each other on the end with Locktite. Then use a regular 6 point metric socket and extension to get out far enough to put a 1/2 drive ratchet on.
    The damper rod is in there with some form of Locktite and it takes about 80-90 ft./lbs of torque to break loose, you will definitely need a 1/2 inch drive. This is the hardest part of the whole installation.

    1/2" All-thread, a 90-deg bend, and brazed a 1/2" nut on the end.

    I just used a couple of nuts jammed together on a bolt and then some socket extensions. Worked fine.
