Fork Cap Measurement

Hello everyone,

I have been searching and searching and I cannot find the size of the cap? I want to buy a tool on my way home. If anyone knows what size tool you are using to remove the caps, I would greatly appreciate the information.

Thank you in advance!
Rene

Ok, so I came home and measured the fork cap. Where does one buy this size? If my calculations are right it is a 36mm fork cap.

I know zip about forks...you mean socket size to remove the cap? Sears or Lowe's will have one, or call the local Snap-on guy if you want that snob factor! lol

Thanks for the reply! I'm looking for the fork cap wrench in that size.. Not a socket.

My bf is most likely going to make a tool for me since I can't find that size anywhere that I am looking......
