How do you remove a ball joint on a 1987 ford f150 pickup

When doing ball joints on a truck that old, I suggest you do them all at the same time. You'll need a special tool called a ball joint fork. You remove the cotter pin on the nut that holds the ball. Then you position the fork tool in between the ball joint and the arm it is attached to and hit it with a hammer until the ball joint separates from the arm. Now unscrew the joint from the adjusting tube and replace the joint. Be careful when screwing the new joint into the adjusting tube. count the number of threads that were inside the tube on the old joint and match that number when installing the new joint. Now push the joint back into the control arm and tighten the nut. Put in a new cotter pin to keep the nut from turning. After you've done all the joints , drive the truck for about 50 miles or so then have a front end alignment so your tires won't wear unevenly or if the truck steers to the right or left when you let loose of the steering wheel while moving.

2001 FXD - What are the specs for front fork travel and how do I change the oil if needed in the fork tubes?

There are no specs for front fork travel. The forks will travel from full compression to full extenison. Use Harley type E fluid.

I'm having a problem in removing the lower ball joint on my 1999 dodge ram 1500 4x4

You can got to a parts store and they will loan you a ball joint tool, all it is is a wedge type fork, that you beat the heck out of to pop the ball joint. Ball joints are stuburn, be carefull!

Think i need fluid in forks of my balius H reg. 1987 i think!

I am not familiar with the Kawasaki Balius model, but nearly all front motorcycle forks have two small hex head fill plugs at the top of the forks. The fluid is usually a very pure mineral oil of some sort, but use only the fluid recommended in the owners manual. You can add fluid using a squeeze bottle or a large syringe, just make sure everything is spotlessly clean. If you continue to loose fluid, you will need to rebuild the forks. The job is fairly straightforward IF you can locate a rebuild kit. Once again, make sure everything is spotless or you will be doing it again soon. If you found this suggestion helpful, please don't forget to rate it.

try chaining fork oil.
check your forks for play.
check your pads for uneven wear.
also make sure the stearing head bearings are ok.
hope somethig helps.
could also be caused by the unevenly worn front tyre.

Front end

A bit more info would be good, like, what exactly do you need, (as you have options) where are you, etc etc. The Super111 shares the same forks as the Speed Triple and Sprint Sports which broadens your search a bit. I think the slider lengths may have changed slightly around 95/96 though but will have to confirm that. 6 pot calipers from a Hayabusa are a straight bolt up fit, in case you find forks minus calipers. Forks are probably not going to be easy to come by but we will try! Cheers,
