  2. Bitubo wrench?

    Suzuki TL1000R & TL1000S Forum
    What wrench do you all had to adjust the spring compression ring? Is a 2-1\2" spanner wrench the correct tool? I just had my Bitubo rebuilt and want to compress the spring before install, as I'm guessing it would be easier to loosen once on the bike.
