    OOPS! It meant to send this message to someone else. But since you both have the same bike I will also give you the web link to download a free service manual.

    The site will come up with a long list of manuals. Scroll to "honda" and click on the 15th manual in the list. The site will ask you to enter some cryptic letters and numbers. When you do, the manual will start to download immediately.

How are the front forks in my suzuki bandit 600 (1998) made up i.e if i take them apart to replace the springs and oil what will i find inside them ???


That is a good one. You are going to find springs and oil! Unless the seals are leaking, you shouldn't have to touch the forks. If the springs are shot, I would just get a new set of forks. But that is rare. You have to take them apart and spill the oil all over the place and get the seals off and the new ones on. There are books written about your specific forks, just have to dig. They tell you to get a pan like a wallpaper pan, and about 40 newspapers, and pull the tops off and catch the oil, then pull the springs out with all the washers etc, Not a hard job.Need about 2 bottles of fork oil, each one takes about 3/4 of a bottle. It is a premeasured amount, you will have to look that up too. Hope this helps.

2003 vt750dc spirit front fork leaks. what to do?


Don't worry about a little oil on the shock, the seal has gone bad, common problem, usually from a hit on the side pushing it out of round. You need to take them apart, dump the oil in a tray or pan, layout the pieces in order on newspaper or in a big tray, replace the seal, put it all back and pour in a pre-measured amount of fork oil. Be careful pushing the springs back in, Hope this helps.

No special tools other than maybe an air-impact whench to remove the Allen bolts in the bottom of the fork sliders. These hold the botom of the metering rods into the forks and will spin if you don't have Honda's special tool which fits down the inside of the fork tube. Air wrench spins them off no problem.

V65 Sabre has fule filter behind battery and fule shutoff valve under seat.

Loosen upper triple-clamp pinch bolt before trying to remove fork cap.

Drain oil out of fork, then remove axle and access the metering rod holder bolt at the bottom inside the area whre the axles goes. Use an air wrench and appropriate Allen bit.

Remove fork cap, being careful of the spring pressure.

Remove fork from bike and take out spring and metering rod. Pry dust seal out of fork slider and use snap-ring pliers to remove retainer from beneath dust seal. Use fork tube to hammer seal and slider bushing out of fork slider.

Replace seal and use old seal to cushion it. Make a fork seal driver from split PVC pipe and hammer seal and slider bushing back in. Remove old seal and replace retainer clip. Install dust seal.

Reinstall on bike and install spring. With bike properly supported, stand on pegs and use ratchet, extension and socket to apply pressure to spring and thread cap carefully onto top of fork tube. Reinstall metering rod holder bolt in bottom of fork using thread-locker and air-wrench. Don't over-tighten; just ue high speed to conteract tendency of metering rod to spin inside slider.

Remove fork cap again and fill to appropriate level with 5 weight fork oil (Pro Honda SS-7 or equivalent). Use turkey-baster to remove excess oil to proper level (5 1/2 to 7 inches fully compressed depending on damping quality desired).
