Anyone Ever removed the crown from the uppers of a Reba, or similar fork? I realize doing so would destroy the crown as they're press-fit, but I want to do so without damaging the stanchions.

Government project, don't ask any questions.

Thanks all. I guess I am just afraid to nick and compromise the stanchions and I was hoping someone had tried something that i haven't thought of yet. Looks like I'm busting out the Dremel.

Don't cut all the way through and you wont knick the parts you are saving. cut a groove almost through to weaken the material and then wedge something in the slot to spread it a bit.

You can try what ziprace suggests but I will wager my paycheque that you are going to have to work hard to get those off!! Good luck and keep at it till it's done!!
