Remove the front fender and wheel, this should let you know if one or both are seized up. you may have bent a tube causing it to bind, or perhaps the spring collasped. Once you determine if it is one or both, you can tear down the offending side and repair or replace as needed.

Hope this is of some help.

If you still have trouble sorting your Buell suspension/forks, check with the experts in the Knowledge Vault - Suspension section at the Buell Forum. They've helped me more times than I can count.

Not a poor design, if you dropped something down inside of a say Honda - you would be splitting the cases to get it out. On the Harley/buell motor you just loosen all of the allen head bolts and remove them and remove the shifter assembly and pull the inspection cover off. pull the next set of bolts if you want to remove the whole cover.

These symptoms could also be an intake leak.
