How to take apart forks on 1989 fxrt


To take the forks apart, first get the fork tube out of the triple trees. You'll probably have to take the top cap and the large spring out to do this as the top cap probably holds the fork turn in the upper triple tree. Loosen the pinch bolt on the lower tree and slide the fork tube out. Empty the oil out of the top of the tube. Notice the spring as you take it out. It' probably has a tapered end on it. That should go to the bottom of the tube when you reinstall it. To get the tube seperated from the slider, look on bottom of the slider where the axle came out. You'll see a socket head bolt under there. It takes a 6mm allen wrench to get it out. Some of them use a "piloted hex key". This is a special allen wrench or hex key with a small point on the end of it to fit into a hole in the center of the bolt. As a result of this, the hex part of the bolt is very shallow. You can get the bolt out if you use a new wrench or one that has not been rounded on the edges. A hex key is pretty hard but you can file a used key off to get fresh points on it. The chrome cover over the rubber cover usually just pushes down over the original rubber boot on the top of the slider.

Good Luck

How do i change fork seals on a roadster 1983?


First you must get your bike off the ground in a safe manner so that you can work on it without it falling over. Safety first. Then remove the front wheel and the front fender. Take the brake calipers off. Loosen and remove the top nut on one tube. Work on one tube at the time. Loosen the pinch bolt on the lower triple tree. Slide the entire fork tube out of the triple trees. Hold the spring in the tube and turn it upside down and drain the oil from the tube. Take the spring out. Notice one end is tapered, this end goes into the tube first. Turn the entire tube upside down and you'll see a socket head allen bolt in the bottom of the slider where the axle goes. This is a "piloted hex key" bolt. It takes a special piloted hex key to remove it but you can get it out if you use a brand new hex key or one that has been ground off on the end so that the edges of the hex key are not rounded. The size is 6mm on most front ends. Take this bolt out and the top tube pulls out of the lower slider. The seal is in the top of the slider. Take the boot off, the snap ring out and pry the old seal out. Replace the seal and reassemble the tube in reverse of how you disassembled it. Get the tube back in the triple trees and add the correct amount of oil to the tube Use the quantity listed for a "dry" tube because you completely emptied the fork tube. Put the spring back in and replace the top cap. Then, go to the next tube. Do not forget to tighten the pinch bolt on the lower triple tree.

Good Luck

Change fork seals on 98 fxdl


You'll have to take each fork leg out of the front end to change the seals. I'm not positive what type front end is on FXDL but it it's a standard type (as opposed to an inverted front end), it's not too difficult.

First remove any sheet metal that might be covering the upper and lower triple trees. Lift the bike off the ground and remove the front fender and front wheel. Loosen the pinch bolt on the upper and lower triple trees. Do one tube at the time. Lubricate the portion of the top tube that is between the upper and lower triple tree. You must slide the fork assembly out of the triple trees. Loosen but don't remove the top caps.

With the fork assembly now out of the triple trees, remove the top cap and pull the spring out. Notice if the spring has a tapered end. Remember which way it came out so you can put it back in the same way. Invert the tube and pour out the oil and let it drain.

You'll see an 8mm bolt in the bottom. Sometimes this is a shallow piloted bolt. If so, you'll need at least a brand new hex key or allen wrench to loosen the bolt. Take the bolt out and slide the lower slider off the top tube. You now have access to the seal. Make sure you put the seal in faceing the correct way. Rince the slider out on the inside with clean mineral spirits and allow to dry. When you assemble the tube and install it on the bike, the amount of oil you put in it is the "dry" amount since you disassembled the tube and poured all the oil out. Put the sping back in the tube and install the top cap. Insert the tube into the triple trees and slide the tube upwards until the top of the top cap is 0.420" to 0.500" above the top of the upper triple tree (notice the height of the other tube that you haven't moved yet).

Good Luck

Getting the front forks out there bent


Ok to get the front forks out, first you must take everything off the front of the bike such as fairing, headlight, windshield, nachelle, etc. Don't forget to disconnect the battery first. Then lift the bike off the ground and take the front wheel and the front fender off.

Look on the backside of the lower triple tree. There is a pinch bolt there. Loosen the bolt and spray some penetrating oil around the upper fork tube. Then take the large "nut" off the tube at the top triple tree. You may have to drive a chisel into the slot on the lower triple tree from the bottom side to spread it a bit. Then work the entire fork tube out of the steering head. Do the same with the other side.

Good Luck

2007 HD Sportster 1200C - front right fork leaking fluid


The headline of your post seems to have it correct, you have a fork seal leaking. To replace the seal, you must remove the fork slider, the lower part of the fork tube to replace the seal and then refill the fork with the proper amount of the proper oil. Here's how you do it on a conventional front fork. This is not for an "inverted fork" where the top part is larger than the bottom.

Remove the front wheel, the caliper if it's on this side or you decide to do both sides. Loosen the pinch bolt on the back side of the lower triple tree. Remove the large nut on the top side of the upper triple tree. Caution: there is a large spring under the nut. Usually, if the bike is completely off the ground, the sping is almost fully extended but it will still have some pressure on it. Remove the spring and work the fork tube out of the triple trees. Turn the thing upside down and pour the oil out of it. Notice in the very bottom of the lower slider where the axle goes through, there is an 8mm hex head bolt. Using a brand new hex key, remove this bolt. A hex key socket on an air wrench helps to remove this bolt. It takes a "piloted key" but you can get it out with a regular one as long as it new and not rounded. Once the bolt is out, pull the top tube out of the lower tube. You'll see the oil seal in the top of the lower slider. Pull the seal out and replace it with a new one. Reassemble the entire assembly and install back into the triple trees. Add the proper amount of the proper weight oil. This is what is commonly called a "dry" fill since you took everything off and wiped it down. Then insert the spring tapered end first and put the large nut back on the top.

Then do the other side if you wish. Only do one side at the time. The remaining tube that is put together helps hold the tube you're working on extended.

Good Luck

Fork needs charging how do I go about it?I need to put new seals and fluid in the left side fork. How do I go about it?


Start by lifting the bike off the ground and making sure it is steady and won't fall over. Remove the front wheel and front fender. Make sure you keep up with where each spacer goes.

Loosen the clamp bolt in the lower triple tree. Take the large "nut" off the top of the fork tube at the upper triple tree. At this point, the fork leg should start to slide downward out of the triple trees. But, most of the time they won't. Take a small chisel and locate the slot on the lower triple tree. Drive the chisel into the slot from beneath to spread the clamp. Make sure the clamp bolt is all the way out or at least very loose to allow the triple tree to expand. You can use a brass drift to help drive the fork leg down from the top. Use plenty of oil to help it slide.

Once you have the fork leg out, you can drain the fluid by either removing the drain plug on the lower slider and pumping the fluid out or simply take the top cap out of the tube. When you take the top cap out of the tube, the large sping in the tube will push the cap up. I don't think it will be too strong to get back in. On the earlier models, they weren't. With the top cap off, take the spring out and pour the old fluid out. Look at the lower slider where the axle goes through, you'll see a hex head bolt. Use an 8mm hex key to remove the bolt. This is a special piloted key. You can use a regular hex key but it must be in very good shape. I'd recommend using one with an air wrench. Once you get the bolt out, simply pull the upper tube out of the lower slider.

Replace the seal in the lower slider and reassemble in reverse order. Make sure you install the large spring with the tapered end down. Refill with the appropiate amount of fluid for a "dry" fork tube. I used 30 weight fluid in mine but that may be too stiff for you. If so, 20 weight is the next common. Honda may have a 25 weight fluid. Honda has some wierd fork oil weights.

Good Luck

Triple tree


Hi depends how hard you went down you can try loosening the upper and lower brackets and twist your front end into the straight position and recheck it eyeball it, if you cant get it to look straight and the forks look bent take to a mechanic and have him check it.
Some shops can straighten forks but triple clamps also can be straightened but you will have to look for a motorcycle frame shop for that service.
other than that replacement is the other option

How to rebuild motorcycle shock


Rebuilding any motorcycle shock (front forks only) is reasonable simple. The things you should remember is to keep things clean when reassembling.
First before removing the shock from the triple tree, loosen the top bolt in the shock. Then remove the shock from the triple tree, remove the top bolt and drain the fluid into a container which has measurements on the side. This is done so you can approximate how much fluid to put back in (if you do not have the specs on fluid levels). Next, there is a screw in the bottom of the shock. Remove this screw and the inner tube will come out of the fork lower. Clean all parts, replace the seal on the slider tube with a new seal and reassemble in the reverse order. Make sure after the shock is remounted in the triple tree to tighten the top bolt.

Fork seal replacement on 82 yamaha 750 seca


On the top and bottom parts of the triple tree either both or one will have bolts. First take the fender off. Take the front tire off. Loosen the bolts on the triple tree. They should slide down. If not you have to get a rubber mallet and tap on the top of the fork and twist the fork as you are doing this. Once it is out, pull the dust seal off the top of the lower fork. There will be a clip inside, take the clip off drain the oil out of the top or bottom depending on how the forks are made. Push the fork tube down into the lower fork slightly, pull both apart with a firm tug and they should separate.
