the $15 lisle #13000 exhaust spreader worked, brought bend in the rear forks out almost a whole inch.
i finally got a sprocket bigger than 32 teeth on this bike. much more power now.
the scissor style screw jack didn't work, i even cut it down and welded a flat plate on top, but still couldn't get it to go in.
although, i'm sure those screw jacks come in several sizes, that would explain how kioshk got his inside the forks.
the Lisle 13000 exhaust manifold spreader is the only sure way to go, that i found anyway.
just thought i would share...
