My 2014 675R has the FG R&T 43 forks. As an alternative to compressing the spring to loosen the jam nut, I modified a spare 17mm wrench (see attached photos) so that I can hold the jam nut with the upper seat (aka spring support) in place as is indicated in the service manual on page 12.19.

What was the purpose of the cartridge pull up tool? Did you think it was necessary?

You need it to pull the damper rod above the fork tube to thread the cap back on. You also need it to pump the rod up and down about a dozen times to bleed the air out. You could probably handle the job without the tool but it would take a lot longer and your fingers would be banged up/exhausted by the time you're done.
