SOURCE: My front fork o-ring seal is leaking, how do I

There is a seal in the "slider" of the front fork, the part that moves up and down. I haven't had a chance to work on the later forks but the earlier 41mm forks are quite simple.

Start by taking the drain plug out of the bottom of the slider and work the slider up and down to blow out all the oil. Then, remove the front wheel. Remove the top cap from the upper tube and loosen the top plug. Now, with the top plug loose, loosen the pinch bolts and slide the fork out of the triple trees. Remove the top plug carefully, There is a BIG spring in there. Once you have the plug out lift the spring out and set it asside. Notice the tapered end of the spring. It goes back in first. Turn fork tube upside down and allow as much oil to drain out as possible.

Now, look at the bottom of the slider where the axle goes. Up in a hole there is an allen head bolt. it is designed to use a special wrench but a regular 8mm allen key in GOOD shape will take the bolt out. It's best to use an air wrench to do this with. With the bolt out, the slider should slide right off.

Down inside the top part of the slider is where the seal is. Theres a snap ring, a spacer, and a seal. Replace the seal and put a little oil on it to assist reassembly. Put everything thing back together and add the appropiate about of oil. Since your forks are much larger than mine, I have no specs as to the quantity. The owners manual should tell you or a call to a local Harley dealer. Sorry but thats a good as I can do. There is a "wet" measurement and a "dry" measurement. Since you disassembled your fork, use the "dry" quantity of oil

I have a 1981 suzuki gs 400 and the gear lever seams to be sticking badly. Can't get it back into neutral ? It has been leaking but I don't know where from


Chances are strong the bike has a bent shift fork. This is a major repair requiring a complete engine tear down. As far as the leak goes, there is a shift shaft seal, drive-shaft ( sprocket shaft ) seal, Kick shaft seal. shift drum switch seal, crank shaft seals and clutch shaft seal. Also, there is the right outer case cover gasket, oil filler "O" ring seal, and the center case mating surface seal. The center case seal is actually a semi-liquid gasket compound applied to the mating surfaces prior to the center case re-assembly. The shift fork repair is not recommended for the unexperienced home mechanic. Below are the main parts if a Suzuki shift mechanism and a diagram of how the shift forks move left and right to change gears. Please rate my answer. Thanks! tombones49_15.gif

HOW DO I TAKE SEALS OUT OF THE FORKS


The forks need to come apart.
I highly recommend getting the factory service and repair manual.
You will need a seal driver tool, and measure the correct amount of fork oil. This isn't a simple job, and it's why I recommend the book.

Repair kit for fok telescope problems


remove the fork from the bike,remove the dust cover over the oil seal,this will expose the fork seal that is leaking,remove the seal(probably have to stab throgh it with a screwdriver to get it out)measure the seal outside diameter and the diameter of the fork leg,take the seal and your measurements to any motorcycle shop and they should be able to match up a new seal...replace the seals in both fork tubes,as if one is leaking the other one will fail soon

Front fork is in very bad state on 1998 beta techno trials


Hi, Leecoggan for this situation I would call my local dealer or reputable shop's service/parts department and inquire about any possible quick fix, answers, or parts inquiry. If necessary, transport your bike to the dealer or shop and have a professional technician take it for a test drive, if it is in running condition, and give you a written estimate of repairs and answer any specific questions you may have about your issue.

Right front fork weeps oil. Will I die?


How long has it been since you've changed your fork oil?
How long has it been since you've changed your fork seals?

If you haven't changed your seals in over 5 years, get your seals changed. Major surgery? Nah... Fork seals is a common procedure, A real good repair shop should be able to do in within the 1 to 2 hour range, depending on the condition of your bike.
Will you die? Only God knows when you're time is up.
