Sure is a pretty tool and looks very effective for the right circumstances, but, I've changed dozens of GL1200 fork seals and never had to use anything more than square cut 1.5" black ABS drain pipe available really cheap at most hardware stores, but, having fancy and expensive tools is a really cool thing if you can afford them.

I agree. The tool is a great thing to have, if you’re only pulling the lowers off.
Just changed mine and wish I had the tool. **== **==
