Worked great on my KLR shock
These spring compressors were very easy to use, and I replaced my KLR Spring in less than two hours with no problems. Be sure to grease the compressors well. Also, you need to hold the body of the compressors with a large adjustable wrench when turning the heads. (This will prevent the compressors from sliding on the spring as some reviewers mentioned.)

Not up to the job
I was able to remove the stock bagged out KLR spring with this tool but it was not able to deal with the new top gun spring. The new spring was the lightest spring and the compressors eventually slid around the coils and ended the installation. I put the spring in a drill press and was able to remove the compressors. I was going to fabricate a proper compressor but a local company called suspensionwerx in Vancouver installed the spring and charged my nitrogen for $15 Cdn. Yay!!
Don't waste your money on this tool. Go Big or Go Home.

The right tool for the job
A must have when changing out UTV springs. The new spring setup was 3 inches longer than the factory springs. Why waste time and risk injury with ratchet straps? The tool is well made and comes in an metal case with instructions. It cut installation time of the new springs in half. This is the tool you need!

Worked, but took some time
I used these to install the heavy duty spring. They worked even though there was a lot of pressure against them. They kept sliding on the spring. They also twisted during the tightening. I ended up with vice grips on either side to prevent them sliding on the spring then using a crescent wrench on them to keep them for twisting under the torque. They worked and were not super expensive and still work.

Does this work for atv spring?
barry d on Jul 20, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I purchased the Tusk spring compressor for my Tiger 800 rear shock spring which requires it to be compressed before it can be removed from the shock body. This tool is a universal design and worked great to compress the spring so I could get at the retaining clip which holds the unit in place. Most ATV shock springs are very similar so I would recommend this tool for that application.
Would the Tusk shock spring compressor tool work with fork springs as well?
Jonathan L on Feb 24, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The Tusk shock spring compressor tool is designed for spring coil over shocks (rear shock(s) on a motorcycle). Here's how it works, the kit comes with 2 compressors, each one has 2 hooks that when fully spread apart hook onto the coil spring, you hook onto the spring with 1 and hook the other onto the spring at the opposite side if the spring/shock. As you alternately (a few revolutions at a time) tighten (turn the screw) on each compressor, well it compresses the spring until you have enough play to remove the retaining fastener. At this point you (alternately) loosen the compressors until the spring is no longer in tension. Now you can slide off the spring and disassemble the shock to replace seals, etc. A tool is not needed for the front forks as the spring is inside the tubes, when you remove the hex cap on the top of the forks by the time the hex cap is ready to come off there is only hand pressure on the spring, as long as you keep downward pressure on the hex cap while you unscrew it there is little chance of bodily injury or 911 calls for an ambulance, although I do know some people that force me to get my phone ready for 911 as soon as they pick up a wrench, ha. Hope this helps (and gives a chuckle). I can tell you though that although the Tusk spring compressor is designed for motorcycle shocks, I have used it a few times on snowmobile rear suspension shocks ( a hell of a lot more tension) and the tool held its own like a champ, got a bit hairy and the 15 year old got nervous and backed away but it worked with no damage to the tool, I use my cordless impact gun to tighten the screw, but remember to alternate, only a few revolutions at a time. it's a nice product. I have lots of Tusk tools and am very happy, I don't work for Tusk but maybe RMATV will send me something free, hint, hint, ha.
Will this compressor tool work on a 2015 Yamaha Viking shocks?
Herbert L on Dec 24, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, it will.
What is the maximum spring rate this compressor is rated/good for? I'm curious if a 12kg/mm spring can be compressed.
Justin H on May 3, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Any limit would be based on the maximum force, which would depend on how much you wanted to compress the spring. But, I don't know what maximum force they are designed for or how far you want to compress the spring.
Does it work with utv springs like Polaris rzr xp1000 springs?
travis s on Sep 5, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Not to put Tusk down I have been very impressed with their products, but I just changed the springs on my XP 1000 this weekend and these compressors are not the best choice for the Shock Therapy spring installation. They slide on the springs and you can easily hurt yourself. I ended up going to AutoZone and renting a set of strut spring compressors, they are a much better choice for working with UTV shock springs.
