Remove motorcycle fork


Put the bike on a stand to elevate the front end. Remove wheel, brake caliper, fender and anything else attached to the fork. Loosen the triple tree bolts. You may need to pry a bit with a flat screwdriver in the gaps of the triple trees where the bolts were while pulling down on fork to remove it. They fit tight. Hope this helps.

How do i spread the lower triple tree so i can install the fork? FLSTC


Hi Anonymous, normally they go in with no trouble, you might have a mushroomed fork tube cap. You can bang in a long tapered chisel at the pinch slot after removing pinch bolts to facilitate instalation.Good luck

Im having trouble installing fork tubes on my harley night train i cant get them to slide through the trees the original ones were just as hard to get out is there a trick to getting them in without a...


First make sure you loosened the pinch bolts on the lower triple tree. I usually take a small cold chisel and insert it into the split where the pinch bolt is and tap it into the split lightly with a small hammer to spread it and open the hole just a bit. I also spray a bit of penetrating oil on the fork tube above the lower tree to lubricate the tube and help is slide out of the lower tree.

Good Luck

What is the torque specs for the nut on the bearings on the triple tree


You have an adjuster nut that you have to tighten just until you don't have any freeplay in the bearing and then the upper triple tree goes on. The pinch bolt tightens to 21-27 foot pounds. The fork stem nut tightens to 35-40 foot pounds according to the manual that I have here. I've found that if you torque the nut that tight, it will tighten the adjustment of the steering head bearings and they'll start to "count". When a bearing is "counting", it is too tight and you can feel it bump from one roller to the next as you turn the front end. If it starts this, you'll have to loosen the fork nut and back off on the adjuster and then retighten the fork nut. Recheck for bearing adjustment. Not "counting" and no shake in the steering head. It's touchy so be patient. I've had to simply tighten the fork stem nut until I got the right tension and disregard the torque setting as long as it felt like it was tight enough not to come loose.

Good Luck

How do i change fork seals on a roadster 1983?


First you must get your bike off the ground in a safe manner so that you can work on it without it falling over. Safety first. Then remove the front wheel and the front fender. Take the brake calipers off. Loosen and remove the top nut on one tube. Work on one tube at the time. Loosen the pinch bolt on the lower triple tree. Slide the entire fork tube out of the triple trees. Hold the spring in the tube and turn it upside down and drain the oil from the tube. Take the spring out. Notice one end is tapered, this end goes into the tube first. Turn the entire tube upside down and you'll see a socket head allen bolt in the bottom of the slider where the axle goes. This is a "piloted hex key" bolt. It takes a special piloted hex key to remove it but you can get it out if you use a brand new hex key or one that has been ground off on the end so that the edges of the hex key are not rounded. The size is 6mm on most front ends. Take this bolt out and the top tube pulls out of the lower slider. The seal is in the top of the slider. Take the boot off, the snap ring out and pry the old seal out. Replace the seal and reassemble the tube in reverse of how you disassembled it. Get the tube back in the triple trees and add the correct amount of oil to the tube Use the quantity listed for a "dry" tube because you completely emptied the fork tube. Put the spring back in and replace the top cap. Then, go to the next tube. Do not forget to tighten the pinch bolt on the lower triple tree.

Good Luck

How do i take apart front forks on a 2000 sportster


Jack the bike up off the ground. Remove the front wheel and front fender. Loosen the pinch bolt in the lower triple tree and take the nut off the top of the upper tube at the upper tree. The fork assembly should slide down and out of the triple trees. Invert the fork tube to pour out the oil and remove the spring. Look on the very end of the lower slider where there is an 8mm bolt. Take the bolt out and the lower slider comes off the upper tube. Reassembly is the reverse of disassembly. Add the correct amount of oil for a "dry" rebuild.

Good Luck

Change fork seals on 98 fxdl


You'll have to take each fork leg out of the front end to change the seals. I'm not positive what type front end is on FXDL but it it's a standard type (as opposed to an inverted front end), it's not too difficult.

First remove any sheet metal that might be covering the upper and lower triple trees. Lift the bike off the ground and remove the front fender and front wheel. Loosen the pinch bolt on the upper and lower triple trees. Do one tube at the time. Lubricate the portion of the top tube that is between the upper and lower triple tree. You must slide the fork assembly out of the triple trees. Loosen but don't remove the top caps.

With the fork assembly now out of the triple trees, remove the top cap and pull the spring out. Notice if the spring has a tapered end. Remember which way it came out so you can put it back in the same way. Invert the tube and pour out the oil and let it drain.

You'll see an 8mm bolt in the bottom. Sometimes this is a shallow piloted bolt. If so, you'll need at least a brand new hex key or allen wrench to loosen the bolt. Take the bolt out and slide the lower slider off the top tube. You now have access to the seal. Make sure you put the seal in faceing the correct way. Rince the slider out on the inside with clean mineral spirits and allow to dry. When you assemble the tube and install it on the bike, the amount of oil you put in it is the "dry" amount since you disassembled the tube and poured all the oil out. Put the sping back in the tube and install the top cap. Insert the tube into the triple trees and slide the tube upwards until the top of the top cap is 0.420" to 0.500" above the top of the upper triple tree (notice the height of the other tube that you haven't moved yet).

Good Luck

Getting the front forks out there bent


Ok to get the front forks out, first you must take everything off the front of the bike such as fairing, headlight, windshield, nachelle, etc. Don't forget to disconnect the battery first. Then lift the bike off the ground and take the front wheel and the front fender off.

Look on the backside of the lower triple tree. There is a pinch bolt there. Loosen the bolt and spray some penetrating oil around the upper fork tube. Then take the large "nut" off the tube at the top triple tree. You may have to drive a chisel into the slot on the lower triple tree from the bottom side to spread it a bit. Then work the entire fork tube out of the steering head. Do the same with the other side.

Good Luck

How do u disassemble forks


Here is a diagram of your forks:
http://216.37.204.203/Yamaha_OEM/YamahaMC.asp?Type=13&A=140&B=28
Assuming you have already removed your fork cap, you will need to remove the clip # 5 and the bolt # 18 then in a slide hammer type action, pull the upper tube out of the lower tube. There is a washer underneath the fork seal that will pull the fork seal out with the upper tube, so you have to compress the fork tube, then give it a good yank to pull the seal and separate the tubes.

A couple of tips here. First, to loosen the fork cap, loosen the top triple tree pinch bolt at each fork leg before removing the forks from the bike, then loosen the fork cap. You don't have to take the cap off at this time, but break it loose. It is very difficult to hold the fork tube and prevent it from turning once the fork is off the bike and out of the clamp. It is much easier to break it loose and leave it finger tight before dropping the forks out of the triple clamps. The key thing to remember is loosen the pinch bolt before attempting to loosen the cap. The pinch bolt applies extra pressure to the cap and can complicate the process of loosening the cap if left tight.
The other tip would be to use a 3/8" air impact wrench to loosen the allen bolt in the bottom of the fork leg. The internals will want to spin if you try to do it by hand.
