SOURCE: Can you straighten torqued front forks on a 2002 Yamaha TTR 125 L

you should be able to saporrt bike so front wheel is off the ground   then take a marker and put lines around where the forks meet the triple trees that hold them in place their should be some allen head bolts that u can loosen on front of the triple clamps  once these are loose you should be able  to move the forks back to strait again in line with the handle bars just line the lines up that u put on them earlier and tighten the allen bolts back up    also  when making the lines  make them from left  to right so marker is touching both fork tube and triple clamp   this is only so you get can keep them the same ride hight as before

SOURCE: I crashed and need to straighten the steering.

First, support the bike so that the front wheel is off the ground. Then, loosen (do not remove, just loosen them) the bolts that clamp the fork tubes into the upper and lower triple clamp braces. Loosen the front axle attachments to the fork legs. Now stand in front of the bike and hold the front wheel between your knees and turn the handlebars until they are straight - and re-tighten everything. Also, check the large nut on top of the steering stem, making sure it is tight.

SOURCE: forks are out of alignment

STAND IN FRONT OF THE BIKE FACING THE HEADLIGHT. STRADDLE THE FRONT WHEEL AND CLAMP THE WHEEL BETWEEN YOUR LEGS. NOW "TWIST" THE HANDLEBARS TO A STRAIGHT POSITION. IT MAY REQUIRE A FEW TWEAKS BUT THE PROCESS IS NOT HARD.

SOURCE: I am unable to align the front forks and steering

What caused the mis alignment in the first place, if it was a crash , something may be bent.
It can help to loosen the axel bolts as well.
perhaps you may need to pull the forks out and turn the chrome stauntions to see if they are bent
Dont try to straighten forks, this can cause stress fractures

98 W/Glide forks out of alignment how do I straighten them?


Hi, Max if your front forks are only twisted and not bent they can be realigned, start by jacking the bike up so the front wheel is off the ground; a half-inch or so will do it.
If the forks have been removed from the bike:
1. Set the fork height in the upper clamp, and then tighten the pinch bolts in 3 equal stages to the proper torque. If you're not convinced that the heights are equal, slip the axle into place. If it doesn't glide smoothly through the forks, one leg is higher than the other, so readjust them until the axle slides through them with little or no effort.
2. Install the front fender but don't tighten the bolts.
3. Install the front wheel and axle. If the axle threads into the fork, thread it in loosely, if it uses a nut, just snug the nut down by hand. Do not tighten the axle pinch bolts.
4. Spin the wheel as fast as you can and abruptly pull on the brake lever. Holding the brake lever on, tighten the front axle.
5. Lower the bike onto the ground, and, while holding the front brake, gently pump the forks a few times. You did remember to tighten those upper pinch bolts, didn't you?
6. Tighten the lower clamp's pinch bolts in 3 equal stages, followed by the axle pinch bolts to the proper torque.
7. Tighten and torque the fender bolts.
If you suspect the forks are tweaked but don't want to go through the procedure above there is an easier way.
A. Support the weight of the bike on the jack or center stand, and loosen the front axle.
B. Remove the lock nut, and then try to slide the axle out of the fork. If it comes away with little effort, the forks are in alignment. If the axle has to be pounded out, it's a safe bet the forks are slightly tweaked or rusted.
C. To correct a slight misalignment, loosen everything but the top clamp pinch bolts (you don't have to remove anything), and start at Step #3. Anytime the wheel is removed, perform steps #4 and #5: that'll center the wheel in the fork and provide better suspension and braking action.
If your forks are aligned but your handlebars are twisted start by loosening the handlebar clamp bolts, then in a criss-cross pattern tighten the bolts in 3 equal stages to the proper torque. You will see that tightening a specific corner pulls the handle bar in a specific direction you can loosen and tighten the bolts on one clamp to achieve proper eyeball alignment, it may take a few attempts to get the desired results.

Had a crash and the wheel is not positioned straight so have to compensate by having the handlebars positioned at a different angle wat should i do


Your front wheel is probably not tracking straight because your fork tubes are out of alignment. This could be caused because the upper and lower tube guides have been knocked out of alignment, because one or both fork tubes themselves are bent, or a combination of the two.

It's pretty easy to check the alignment of your tubes. Put your bike on its kickstand (center stand is better, if you have one) and stand in front of your bike, facing the headlight. Look carefully at where the fork tubes are anchored--they're clamped in right about the handlebars, and they're also clamped in below the headlight. Look at these two clamps and see whether they are completely in alignment. With your handlebars pointing straight ahead, the lower guides shouldn't be cocked to one side or the other. Odds are, you'll find that it will be.
Getting your fork tube clamps back into alignment is relatively straightforward, though straightening them out may also reveal bends in your fork tubes. The easiest way to get these into alignment is to remove your front wheel and then slide out your fork tubes. At this point, you should be able to loosen the clamp on the bottom (and top) of the steering tube--as if you were going to change out your steering bearings--and muscle the upper and lower fork tube clamps back into alignment. You can adjust the upper or the lower clamps (or both), whichever is easier; the goal is to get them both back into alignment.

Some people try to do this procedure with the fork tubes still in the guides--they loosen everything up and then use the forks as levers to pull everything back into alignment--but I haven't had great luck with that method, because the force that generates this condition also often bends the fork tubes, so they won't want to go back to their proper configuration. You and I simply don't have enough strength to straighten bent fork tubes without use of a hydraulic press.

Once your front fork tube clamps are back in alignment, check each of your forks before you re-install them to make sure that they aren't bent. One easy way is to take a straight edge (a ruler will work just fine) and slowly run it around the tube. The straight edge should touch all parts of the upper piece at all times. If you see any air between the straight edge and the fork, it's bent. Fortunately, many bent tubes can be straightened--just about any motorcycle repair shop can do this work or knows a place that can do it--but it's also worth checking around to see whether you can find a set of used forks for less than the cost of the repair. If you have to disassemble one or both of your forks to have the tubes straightened or replaced, it's also a great time to replace your fork seals while you're at it. Re-using the old seals probably won't generate a nice tight oil seal, and you'll simply have to take everything apart before too long and replace them.

How do I put front wheel on without making the forks lock up it keeps doing that when I put it on my02 cr250


Putting uneven loading on the forks(twist) may cause binding and harsh action but I haven't heard of them locking up. Try the following order of installation. position the wheel and slide in the axel. Tighten the axel, leaving the pinch nuts loose. Spin the tire and stop it a few times using the front brake. Tighten the pinch nuts. Put bike on the ground and see if forks still bind. If they do then loosen the pinch bolts, lock the front brake and try to compress the forks. This should align the forks. Tighten the pinch bolts. Check forks again. If you still have problems someting is wrong like bent fork tube or slider, misaligned triple clamp, maybe a bent axel.You might take off the fork tubes and push on them seperately to make sure they feel ok. Then do the install checking the forks at each step to find the place where binding starts. Good luck.

Handlebar adjustment....


A lot of guys will just find a firm surface (tree, pole) and beat the wheel against it to straighten the front wheel. Some will kick the wheel to straighten the front end. I would not suggest either method unless you are in the middle of a race.

The best way is to loosen the top triple clamp bolts (that grip the fork tubes) and then grip the tire with your knees (standing in front of the bike) and twist the bars, then re-tighten the top clamp bolts once you are happy with the alignment. It will move quite easily. Check the tighness of the steering stem nut after you are done.

If you need any additional details, don't hesistate to ask.

I crashed and need to straighten the steering. The front wheel is turning to the left. How do I re-align the handlebars and front wheel?


First, support the bike so that the front wheel is off the ground. Then, loosen (do not remove, just loosen them) the bolts that clamp the fork tubes into the upper and lower triple clamp braces. Loosen the front axle attachments to the fork legs. Now stand in front of the bike and hold the front wheel between your knees and turn the handlebars until they are straight - and re-tighten everything. Also, check the large nut on top of the steering stem, making sure it is tight.

Can i straighten the front forks up if I loosen the nut on the headstock, move the fork legs, and retighten the nut again? the bike is a VL800 k5.


Loosen the front fender, the axle retaining bolts, plus the upper and lower headstock bolts and nuts so that the whole assembly is free to align. Tighten the fender last. If that doesn't restore wheel alignment, you may have bent tubes that need straightening or replacement. Was the bike in a front-end wreck?

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.
Note...you can destroy forks if you don't properly torque tripple clamp bolts!!!!
