Typically you would loosen the triple clamps that hold the fork tubes, trap the front wheel or have some on hold it and re align the wheel with the handle bars and re tighten. The challenge with a scooter is removing covers to gain access the triple clamp.

Hope this is of some help.

You only have to loosen the lower triple clamp pinch bolts and twist between the knees or against a solid object. If you loosen all of them the fork height, etc. can get whacked out.

    In extreme cases you might have to loosen the top steering stem nut, but this can be difficult if you don't have access to the correct size wrench. Just loosening the lower clamp bolts works well unless the fork tubes are bent. I have been doing this at the race tracks for years on bikes that have fallen out of the sky at high speed.

Front forks on a 1987 Honda Goldwing motorcycle how to change them

Place bike on center stand.
Jack the front of the bike to raise the front wheel off the ground. Be careful!!!
Remove the front wheel.
Remove the front fender and cross brace.
Disconnect the brake calipers from the forks.
Remove the air connections from the fork tops.
Loosen the fork leg clamp bolts on the triple tree.
Slide each leg out of the bike. Twisting while pulling often helps.
This can also be done without removing the front wheel but you will have to elevate the front of the bike another foot or so - just disconnect the air fittings and brake calipers, loosen the clamp bolts and drop the whole front assembly.

If there is no main stand on your motorbike it can be a problem sometimes, not only do side stands dig into soft ground & warm tarmac they also make it awkward to oil the drive chain !

A simple way around this is to get either :-
A piece of strong piece of wood about an inch square ( or in diameter) or
A strong hammer or mallet or
A small trolley jack handle or similar preferably with rubber or taped ends

Whatever you use it must be about an inch (or more) longer than from the ground to the right hand end of the rear spindle (axle) or underside of the right hand swinging arm, WHILE THE BIKE LEANS on its side stand: For the very few bikes that have a side stand on the right, read left hand end of rear spindle

All you have to do is raise the rear wheel slightly by pivoting the weight of the bike on its front wheel & side stand

On medium to large bikes this means getting someone else to position themself on the side stand side of the bike, where they should put 1 foot against the side stand & reach over the bike to grab a good purchase point near the rear wheel, grab the nearest handlebar end with the other hand & pivot the bike forwards on its front wheel & side stand
This will lift the rear wheel a few inches so that your prop can be placed upright between the ground & your selected point on the bike

Spin the rear wheel by hand whilst applying non fling chain lubrication to both edges of your bikes chain


Ride safe

I hope this helps (if so give good feedback please)

1990 Goldwing Se 43,000 miles smokes when on side stand, Only when starts up ! I think valve seals not sure if this is normal on low miles, Please advise what can be done to fix it! Thanks, R Partridge

hi there these have the same problems as the bmw when on the side stand over a period of time the engine oil goes past the rings on the pistons on that side the side stand is only good for dropping in to a shop or something like that,so if your putting it up for the night or longer use your centre stand this should fix the problems a lot of bmw ownerswhen new would leave them on the side stand and go back to the dealer very upset because they had a dud motor untill they were advised of the problem,it was in the owners manual byt as bikes get sold on the manuals dont go with them,so try this and i am pretty sure the problem will go away ,cheers pete

The bike keeps shifting gears on its own what is wrong

This happens when the back wheel is not lined up properly with the bicycle frame. Because the gears are not in a straight line with the chain it can slip. If it slips to the right, away from the wheel, then loosen the wheel and move the end of the wheel next the pedals slightly to the right as you stand behind the bike. If it slips to the left, in towards the wheel, then move the end of the wheel nearest to the pedals to the left. Once the wheel and the chain are in line it should stop changing on it's own.

Rattling noseat the front of the bike sumwhere, it only rattles when on slightly rough roads.

Place the bike on a stand or crate so the front wheel is off the ground. Give the front tyre a whack with a rubber mallet and listen for the rattle. Move balance of bike forward so rear is free of ground and repeat on rear tyre. Your bound to find some more rattles. Periodical maintenance should include test tighten all bolts, nuts and screws, because that's what holds you above the ground!!

I have a 2005 kdx 200. bike starts and idles perfect, when i put the bike in gear the idling drops and the bikes wants to pull forward as if the clutch isnt engaging, but when i rev the clutch seems fine,...

the cluck need to be looked at as its draging its not fully disengaged witch is what makes the bike pull forwards when you put it in gear have a look at the free play in the cluch cable and if there is a lot take some out this will help to disengage the cluch a bit more but dont take all the free play out you need a little left in say 1/4 of an inch is plenty at the handelbars

06 yzf250. My front wheel is crooked. Handle bars are straight but wheel is turned to the right. How do I fix it?

Fix it just like you would on a bicycle> stand in front of the bike facing the bars with the wheel straight forward and held tightly between your legs. Grab the bars and firmly twist them in the direction needed to line them back up. Re-check the alignment and repeat if needed. Tighten the triple clamps on the fork legs a bit and you are done.

Droped bike handelbars r straight and front wheel is slightly turned 2 da left

You need to loosen and re-torque the fork triple clamp bolts, along with the front wheel axle, and pinch bolts. Do this with the front wheel off of the ground. Your forks may have twisted, and all needs to be loosened, straightened, and re-torqued. can destroy forks if you don't properly torque tripple clamp bolts!!!!

Clutch issues

Not overly familiar with your bike, but there is probably a kill switch on the center stand to stop the engine. This prevents the potential problem of coming off the center stand with the wheel spinning.
