Does anyone know how to remove the lower triple clamp from a set of ktm 950 forks? I have the bearings off but the steering tube is stuck solid and my finger cant't take another whack with the lump hammer. Also when I get this off how do I fit the adaptor back in?

Thanks

If your talking abut the stem itself then a press would be an advantage if not a must ..I have never removed one from a ktm but all my other bikes i have used a press ..

A press is the only way to remove or fit a steering stem. It exerts constant pressure whereas a lump hammer exerts pressure only when it strikes allowing the object to spring back and remain unseated

12 ton press did the job no problem - Thanks
Just noticed though that the steering stop bolts don't line up between the ktm forks/ at frame has anyone else come across a tidy solution for this?
