Use with CAUTION
The clamp portion of the tool are supplied with plastic covers, presumably to protect the finish on the springs. They are held in place with small phiilip head screws. The covers actually make the tool slide on the spring coils as you tighten the tool. Remove these covers and the tool works as intended. It did not damage the finish on either the stock or replacement springs with the "protectors" removed.

Well made tool. I replaced the springs on my RZR 1000 with Eibach dual rate springs. The tool worked well for removal of stock springs, But when trying to compress the new springs the tool slid around circumference of spring. I had to use something that was "red-neck" engineered to get the job done

Small in size but they do work well. Well made.
Changed out the springs on my RZR 1000. The Tusk spring
compressor worked flawlessly for my application.
The jaws grip the springs with no slipping.
Easy to use well made with a metal storage box.

Rzr turbo s velocity springs
I will hold onto these but they didn’t work on my Rzr turbo s velocity springs. I ended up renting a spring compressor from the auto parts store for my spring swap. They may work better on smaller springs

Great tool for the motorcycle enthusiast!
Used these on Honda Mini Trail shocks and they worked perfectly. Non - marring so they don't scratch newly painted springs....

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.
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.
