-The 39mm Fork Caps need a 1-3/​8"​(1.375"​) socket or Cap Wrench. A usable equivalent is a 35mm(1.378"​) size. It's a good idea to wrap masking tape, electrical tape or duct tape (depending on the thickness of the tape) around the chrome cap to protect if from marks.

 +Use a 6-point socket, rather than a 12-point version, to lessen the chance of rounding the points on the cap. This is also why an adjustable wrench should be avoided.
