SOURCE: my triple tree bearings nuts are not loose nor are

are the forks leaking oil? is there air pressure in the forks? Start by draining the forks and putting in the correct ammount of the proper oil, and getting the air pressure right then see how she rides. Other things to check, front wheel bearings, worn triple tree bearings.

How to remove heater hose fitting clamps

They have a special tool that has a clamp on a cable. Some auto parts will loan or rent out the tool. Some times you can rotate the clamp by putting pressure on one end of the clamp and rotating it to a different position BUT be careful because if you break the heater connection taking out the heater core will cost you

Tree there a threaded tube running between the two parts of the tree on the front end?

There is the steer tube that is pressed into the lower tree/clamp. This tube is threaded on the top so that you can put a nut on it after the upper tree/clamp to preload the headset when you install the front end.

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.

I had to loosen the front shock to remove the front fender. ( New paint job). I unscrewed the top cap and released the spring. Now the threads are down in the tube to far to reach. How do I get them back...

Just pull up on the tube until it is as high as the other tube (even with the top of the upper triple clamp) and tighten the lower triple clamp so it does not slide down in the upper and lower triple clamp. If you do not pull the tube back up and tighten the clamps, when you push down on the spring to put the cap back on the metal fork tube will just slide down the clamps again.

Im having a hard time taking my front shocks apart, i have fallowed the book but there is something that im missing i cant get the iner shaft out

jacke the front of the cycle up under the motor with the cycle on the center stand. The first thing you do after removing the front wheel and axle is to reach up into the lower fork tube with a hex key and loosen the socket cap that holds the tubes to the lower tubes. After the socket cap has been put back in loosely, you can now unspring the fork top caps. The spring pressure from the top caps is necessary to loosen the lower socket screw. The upper and lower triple clamps are the best way to hold on to the fork tubes. The tubes never have to be removed form the clamps. After you unspring the tops , remove the lossened socket caps from the bottom of the forks and slide the lowers off the tubes.

How do you take top clamp off tree to remove forks? i can not see screws.for honda shadow 750 spirit 2003

On the front of the clamps you will see two round chrome circles. These are fancy hole fillers/plugs. If you gently pry them out with a small screw driver you will find the socket cap bolts you seek to remove the upper triple clamp. If you are trying to put in new fork seals it is more easily done by leaving the tubes in the clamps and sliding the lower fork tubes off the bottom of the fork tubes.

Equator dishwasher portable

I think I know how to solve your problem. The pressure switch that controls the water supply valve can be accessed from the rear of the dishwasher. Take off the panel that is on the left, viewed from the rear. The pressure switch will be at the upper left with a two part tube leading down to the water sump area. Take the tube apart and clean it out. Any clog is most likely in the lower area, larger diameter tube. When you have the 'clamp' removed, you can pull the large tube off the reducer fitting. If the reducer fitting does not have any debris itself, you probably don't have to disassemble and clean out the upper part of the tube, but you could just to be sure. The first time I had this problem, I just blew out the lower tube. This time I really cleaned it out. To clean the lower part of the tube I used a doubled coat hanger wire. I straightened the tube and inserted the doubled wire, rotated it a few times, and pulled it out. It was covered with gunk. I actually repeated this process several times until it came out relatively clean. I reassembled the dishwasher and it is back to working fine.
