Buy a front paddock stand that fits into bottom of steering stem. This will lift your front wheel off the ground. Remove calipers and front wheel. Slide the forks back down carefully ensuring they drop out all the way and smash radiator. Use vernier caliper to measure amount of fork protruding above top yoke and make sure they are the same. About 10mm max

How do u remove thunderace yzf1000 ignition barrel from the top yolk

Remove the big nut in the center of your steering, slacken off the pinch-bolts which clamp the top yoke to the fork legs. Using a soft mallet, tap the yoke upwards to remove it from the forks. You should be able to be able to get at the ignition once this is off.

How to remove front forks from a 1992 honda fireblade

Probably do-able but you will have to make sure you can support the bike from under the engine. Some bikes will allow this all depends on what is below the oil sump area. If you can support the bike from under the engine I would suggest getting an ABBA stand and a small car jack. With the front wheel raised remove front wheel, fork brace if fitted, mudguard and brake calipers ( I always hang the calipers on string tied to the handle bars. You will have to remove anything that is fixed to the fork sliders i.e. cable clamps, brake line unions and fixing bolts speedo cable clamps etc etc. Undo the top and bottom yoke clamp bolts the forks should then be able to be gently twisted out. Be very careful when twisting the fork legs as the yokes are quite hard metal and can easily score the chrome plating. Hope this helps

My forks have a little bit of play on a125cc shineray can i tighten them

If the bit of play is happening between the inner and the outter tube of the fork, you must take them apart for repair.If the bit of play is between the tube and the yokes (triple tree) of the steering then sure you can tight the yoke's bolts in specified torque.

Remove ignition 1996 Honda Shadow 1100

Remove the top yoke/ fork clamp nut and clamp bolts, then the handle bar clamps, remove circlips from fork tops if it has any (remove fork caps if their diameter is larger the that of the fork tubes leave if thay are the same) slide the top yoke off past steering lock unclip switch wiring coupler.
The ignition switch will probably be in with saftey screws or snap off saftey torque bolts, remove with saftey screw tool or drill off toqure bolts

I have a Forza model mens bike. I ride with the seat fully raised. However I have to bend down too much to reach the handlebars. My question is is it possible to raise the yoke in the front forks in order...

You may have a bike that is too small for you. If you are unable to return it the stem can be replaced by one that raises the bars more or that does not go forward as far, or the bars can be raised by using what is called a "stem riser". It is best to refer to a bike shop for info on purchasing the correct stem/riser or installing such an item, but below is an example of one stem riser and install videos..

Just looking for an easy step by step explanation on how to remove front forks on 2007 suzuki gsxr 750

Make sure bike is upright, fully supported and weight of the front wheel, you will need say 50CM min clearance below to remove forks. Remove calipers from discs (two bolts attaching to each fork), remove front wheel (two bolts on bottom of each fork then wheel spindle), remove fender/mudguard (possibly four bolts), Undo the bolts that hold the forks into the lower yoke/triple clamp, undo the upper yoke/triple clamp bolt to remove fork (one side at a time) refitting is reverse of removal, enjoy.

I would like to know how to change the front forks on my burman

To remove the forks you need to untighten the screws holding the forks in the yoke, then hit the tops of the forks slightly with a wooden hammer to get them out of the yoke.
