Please excuse my vernacular or lack of technical wording, a little new to the repair and maintenance side of things.
Trying to change fork seals on my YBR, have loosened top bolt (at yoke) loosened bottom bolt (at axle) removed top bolt, drained oil and remove spring and spacer, but now I just cant get the bottom bolt to release the piston rod. It just rotates (stiffly) forever.
Would really appreciate any insight from my more technically experienced peers.
Thanks all

A length of dowling helped me do mine. Used some mole-grips to hold the dowl whilst undoing the bottom allen bolt. My forks are a similar design to yours so it may work for you.

Sorted, cheers guys. Another question. Trying to source some new seals, ones I removed were 40 x 30 x 10, closest I can find is 40.5 x 30 x 10. Is it possible these will fit? Seems unlikely as 5mm might not seem like a lot but I'm sure it'll be a hell of a difference when I'm trying to get them in.
Otherwise does anyone know of a good mail order firm to get some decent seals?
Thanks all.

Isn't it 0.5 mm that they're out by?

Can't help you with the fork seals (maybe different models have different diameter tubes[shrug] )
But i've got an owner manual in pdf if you want? (not a workshop manual)
