If you are replacing the oil the fork tubes should be removed. If you are just topping off the existing oil then just raise and fill.

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.

Bikes too low


Your bike has had major changes to the geometry. You already know this and are probably very careful when riding it as a result. I am presuming you are not able to ask your dad for advice on this matter now. I am sorry for this. He must have been a very cool dad.

I dont think I would make any structural changes to your dads design unless you could revert to an earlier version by changing the fork. I would consider different tires, however.

Good luck with your project.

How do I change the front disc on the heritage softtail


You need a way to get the bike off the ground safely. With the wheel just touching the ground, take the axle nut off and pull the axle out of the fork sliders and the wheel. Make sure that you mark the spacers where they go and position they are in or make a drawing. Do not try to "remember" how they went. Slow raise the bike up above the wheel and remove the speedometer drive unit. Notice how it was in there with the "tab" in the notch of the wheel. Once the rotor has cleared the caliper, raise the bike high enough to get the wheel out from under the bike. Take the bolts out of the disc and remove the disc. Replace the disc and use new bolts. Torque Allen type bolts to 23-27 foot pounds and T-45 Torx type bolts to 30-45 foot pounds of torque. You can remove the two bolts that hold the caliper onto the fork slider and remove the caliper before you take the wheel off or you can leave it on and guide the rotor back between the two pads upon reinstallation.

Good Luck

Fork seal replacement


If all you want to do it replace your fork seals, if you can find a way to jack the bike high enough, you don't have the fork tubes our ot the triple trees. Work with on fork tube at a time. Raise the bike up off the ground and take the front wheel and fender off. Brake caliper off it's tube. Now raise the bike up to where you've got about a foot of clearance below the lowest point of the slider. Look underneath the slider where the axle goes through and you'll see an 8mm bolt. Take this bolt out and your lower slider will come off. The fork oil will start to drain as soon as you take the bolt loose as well. Leave a pan under the upper fork while you work on the lower to catch the dripping oil. Replace the fork seal and reassemble that tube. Then, do the next one. Now, refill the tube with the correct amount of the correct oil from the top by removing the top cap nut. Pour in the correct amount of oil for a "wet" refill. The thicker the viscosity of the oil, the firmer the front fork action. I think they came with H-D type E which seems to be a bit softer action than 30 weight fork oil. Make sure you use fork oil. Regular engine oil or transmission oil should not be used and it will foam if you're riding down a rough road and your forks will collapse and not work until the oil settles again. Not a pleasant feeling. It's really doubtful if you'll get anywhere that is that rough with your Harley.

Good Luck

How do Fill Front Forks?


YOU FILL FORKS BY TAKING THE CAPS OFF AT THE TOP BY UN DOING WITH A SPANNER BUT YOU MUST DO THIS WHILE THE FRONT IS OF THE GROUND AND THERE IS NO WEIGHT PUSHING THE FORKS AND YOU NEED THE MANUAL TO SEE HOW MUCH FLUID GOES INTO THE FORKS EXAMPLE IT WILL SAY (13CM FROM TOP) THIS MEANS FROM THE TOP OFF THE FORK YOU MEASURE 13CM FROM TOP TILL THE OIL HITS THE 13CM GOOD LUCK

How do i fill forks on a 1980 cb 900 honda


Look for a small drain screw of at the bottom of each fork,this is where you drain it,Then there should be a large hex at the top where you add the correct mount,also the spring is in there so have the front end raised off the ground by setting the frame up on some blocks
