    Default Valve spring removal tool, 1982 GS1100E?

    What are you guys using to remove the valve springs on the 4valve 1100?
    My auto tool is too awkward, I wasn't sure if anyone found a smaller one that works easier.
    TIA

    I find working on my motorcycle mildly therapeutic when I'm not cursing.

    I have a two valve per cylinder head so I'm not sure this is worth your time, but I use a giant C clamp, PVC pipe, and a magnetic wand. Maybe this sort of set up wouldn't work on the four valve bikes, I don't know. And, this set up is also a little awkward.

    ^^yes, I made very very similar for my 4 valve gsx400( that has screw-type tappets.).. with aluminum pipe . Looks like yours has a pad between clamp and pipe piece which I should do too, as it can be a bit slippery lining up the bits.
