EBR lower race spring thingy

Terbo Speghetti /

Where is this supposed to go?

Do I press the lower race onto it?

Or just slip it into the top of the lower race like in the second pic?

It's got a longer and shorter side, is there a reason for that?

Thanks for helping with bb's first EBR install.

Hm. That's the way it came on the triple tree, and that lower race is real floppy without it. You might be right tho, I dunno

You hammer the lower race over the shim

Thanks! That's what I thought. Not easy tho, I tried with a PVC pipe and it was too soft to get the job done

An old seat post works pretty good for me

This is the hardest part of fork replacement for me every time. I put the shim on the tube, chamfer it with a Dremel, cover it in lithium grease, drop the lower race over it, then use the seat post and a hammer to force the race down over it.

I literally just finished a couple minutes ago, and you're right, it's no joke. Took my biggest hammer and a piece of blk pipe I had laying around
