The compressor worked well on the first shock. However the aluminium screw stripped on the second shock from the tension on the shock. I went to Lowes and bought a circle bolt and nut, which worked well. I'm sure that I'm not the first person who's had this issue.

Don't try making your own compressor out of wooden lath and misc nuts and bolts.....you will fail. Just spend the few bucks and get it done fast and safe.

Progressive Suspension Shock Spring Compressor
Used this to replace the stock shock spring on a KLR650. Perfect tool for the job.
