05 speedmaster front forks are bent &can they b serviced or would i have to replace them &can i put forks from other bikes on...what size are my forks


Hi Myra, it all depends on the type/location/and severity of the bend usually it's better just to replace them with OEM forks and I am sorry you can't find the first and best tool you ever bought for your Triumph but despair not for a mere $10 you can download another one. For more information about your issue, please visit the websites below. Good luck and have a nice day.

Can it be fix if the forks from my Suzuki 650 sv are bbended can I in bended or they got to be replace


Replace. If your forks are bent then I would suggest getting the front end checked for other damage.

I dont know exactly what happened my buddy had my bike out and wrecked it .. Looks like the front wheel came back into the radiator. Its not in the radiator now. But I know something is bent because the...


The forks usually bend well before the frame.
Take the forks off the bike and turn the chrome part in the fork leg and you will soon see if they are bent.
If they are only slightly bent a dial gauge will help.
Dont even think about having them straightened, get new ones

Had a crash and the wheel is not positioned straight so have to compensate by having the handlebars positioned at a different angle wat should i do


Your front wheel is probably not tracking straight because your fork tubes are out of alignment. This could be caused because the upper and lower tube guides have been knocked out of alignment, because one or both fork tubes themselves are bent, or a combination of the two.

It's pretty easy to check the alignment of your tubes. Put your bike on its kickstand (center stand is better, if you have one) and stand in front of your bike, facing the headlight. Look carefully at where the fork tubes are anchored--they're clamped in right about the handlebars, and they're also clamped in below the headlight. Look at these two clamps and see whether they are completely in alignment. With your handlebars pointing straight ahead, the lower guides shouldn't be cocked to one side or the other. Odds are, you'll find that it will be.
Getting your fork tube clamps back into alignment is relatively straightforward, though straightening them out may also reveal bends in your fork tubes. The easiest way to get these into alignment is to remove your front wheel and then slide out your fork tubes. At this point, you should be able to loosen the clamp on the bottom (and top) of the steering tube--as if you were going to change out your steering bearings--and muscle the upper and lower fork tube clamps back into alignment. You can adjust the upper or the lower clamps (or both), whichever is easier; the goal is to get them both back into alignment.

Some people try to do this procedure with the fork tubes still in the guides--they loosen everything up and then use the forks as levers to pull everything back into alignment--but I haven't had great luck with that method, because the force that generates this condition also often bends the fork tubes, so they won't want to go back to their proper configuration. You and I simply don't have enough strength to straighten bent fork tubes without use of a hydraulic press.

Once your front fork tube clamps are back in alignment, check each of your forks before you re-install them to make sure that they aren't bent. One easy way is to take a straight edge (a ruler will work just fine) and slowly run it around the tube. The straight edge should touch all parts of the upper piece at all times. If you see any air between the straight edge and the fork, it's bent. Fortunately, many bent tubes can be straightened--just about any motorcycle repair shop can do this work or knows a place that can do it--but it's also worth checking around to see whether you can find a set of used forks for less than the cost of the repair. If you have to disassemble one or both of your forks to have the tubes straightened or replaced, it's also a great time to replace your fork seals while you're at it. Re-using the old seals probably won't generate a nice tight oil seal, and you'll simply have to take everything apart before too long and replace them.

I am thinking of buying a 2005 honda shadow sabre and the seller says that one of the chrome front fork covers is dented in causing the front forks not to move. He claims that the fork is not bent and all...


hey El, PASS on this bike!!! The fork tube(s) may be bent..If the " chrome front cover" is the fork leg..its $$$ to fix it...
personally, I would pass on this bike until the owner repairs it!!
The owners explanation smells like BS!!!

It takes quite a lick on the fork leg or a bent tube to make the forks not work!!!!

I just bought the bike , and have just noticed the front fork is bent , it looks like the left fork bends foward about an inch , is this normal


Bent forks are not normal, most likely got damaged in shipping.... There is a spec that you shoudl be able to get from the bike maker.

Steering head split while riding 2006 zx14 model, not an impact accident, front forks did not bend


The ZX14 is not subject to such a failure without some type of instigation. I have repaired many ZX14 that have been in accidents and the forks appear to be stronger than the steering head. This means that the steering head area will bend / break before the forks will. The most common cause for broken steering head is the Wheelie. When the bike comes back down from the wheelie it has very high impact on the steering head. I would suggest a new frame as repairing a broken steering head can be very dangerous.

Thanks and I hope that this helps.

Schwinn Scotch bike. Can't get the front wheel on. Have removed 1 nut and 1 washer from each side but the forks will not fit down onto the "screws" almost as if the forks are not set wide enough.


Stand the bike on seat and handlebars.
Have somebody steady the bike.
Bend the forks outward with both hands as you lower wheel into place.
