    I can't be there to see the problem so I can't really help much, but a parts diagram may help. Go to the site below where you can see a parts diagram for your specific bike. You will select the actual brand, year, model, etc., once you go to the site. Part numbers and prices are also shown. You can order parts from this site. In the event no price is shown on a particular part and/or the notation "Not Available" is in the description, the part is not in stock.

Check to make sure you haven't swapped the forks Left for Right. There maybe a design feature thats prevents swapping them.

Just bought a used mongoose menace and the front fork is rusted in so can't remove it to repaint the frame. Any tips on how to get it out?

There are two opposing wedges that are holding your forks in the front tube. Picture you have a bolt with no head on it the diameter of the fron tube with a hole drilled through the tip piece and the bottom one is threaded. when you tighten the bolt that comes up thru the main tube, that holds the handlebars on, the bottom wedge is pulled up and the bolt just spins thru the upper one. it pulls the bottom one up until the two wedges make contact, as they do they try to bypass each other forcing them outward and biting the inside of the tube. Sooo...shoot some WD-40 or better yet liquid wrench down the tube, thread the bolt back in all the way (not tite) back it out about an inch, put a block of wood on top of the bolt and smack it with a hammer, the bolt will slide thru the first wedge cuz it has a big hole. the second will be driven down seperating the two. if it totally doesn't let all the way, loosen it a little more and whack it again. You want as much thread in the bottom wedge as possible and the bolt stick up the least so it doesnt get bent. there you go Bud.

Hi,I am working on a 1991 VT600c,I have changed the fork oil following the instuctions on the manual.I tried to make the bottom drain bolt loose so i could drain the oil out.This bolt broke loose but does...

Put the fork back together. The spring tension from putting the fork top/cap on is what allows you to loosen and tighten the socket bolt on the bottom. It is easiest to work on the fork with the tube clamped into the upper and lower triple clamp of the motorcycle. When you first get access to the socket bolt on the bottom, you take it out. Do not loose the sealing washer. if you are not ready to drain the fork , you put it back in loosely. When you are ready to fill the fork, you put the socket bolt and sealing washer in and snug them up just enough to keep the fork oil from leaking out. Do not over fill your fork it will damage the tubes.. After the fork top is back on and screwed down , you tighten the socket bolt on the bottom and continue reassembling the bike.

How to change the berings in the front fork (stering) i cant open the big 27 screw on the top. Yamaha TDR 125

well to change the steering head bearings,

firstly you need to take off your headlight or anything thats in the way just to make it a little easier, then you put the bike on a stand and get the front wheel off the floor, un bolt the top yoke (clamp) from the forks, then you MUST un bult that 27 screw on the top of the sterring colum, if you must use vice grips and buy a new bolt/ nut.

when the top half is finaly loose you can pull the handle bars up and the top yoke will come off, and the bottom half with the wheel and forks will also come out with a tap or it might just come so watch yourself and the bike. then you can put new bearings and put it all back together the same way you started.

How do I replace the fork oil seal

Put the forks back together and tighten the pre-load as much as you can. You may or may not be able to get it out. If not, you will need an impact gun. Will go back together by hand no problem.
