KTM Shock Spring Adjust Tool

After the success with the fork cap wrench I figured that I might be able to make a strong enough tool to adjust the rear shock spring, when setting the sag for example.

The first tool was a little bit long so the end would foul the airbox and the hook at the end was a bit too wide to smoothly engage in the slots in the shock ring.  With these modifications here is the final design,

The LzD logo is for Little zed Design which is a brand that I have recently aquired.  For the print, the letters were recessed into the tool but they were a bit shallow and didn’t come out nice (see below), so now the letters are raised a little instead.  This was printed in ABS with 0.2mm layers, 50% grid infill and 0.8mm wall thickness.

Now it works very well,
