SOURCE: 82 honda sabre fork seal replacement

No special tools other than maybe an air-impact whench to remove the Allen bolts in the bottom of the fork sliders. These hold the botom of the metering rods into the forks and will spin if you don't have Honda's special tool which fits down the inside of the fork tube. Air wrench spins them off no problem.

V65 Sabre has fule filter behind battery and fule shutoff valve under seat.

Loosen upper triple-clamp pinch bolt before trying to remove fork cap.

Drain oil out of fork, then remove axle and access the metering rod holder bolt at the bottom inside the area whre the axles goes. Use an air wrench and appropriate Allen bit.

Remove fork cap, being careful of the spring pressure.

Remove fork from bike and take out spring and metering rod. Pry dust seal out of fork slider and use snap-ring pliers to remove retainer from beneath dust seal. Use fork tube to hammer seal and slider bushing out of fork slider.

Replace seal and use old seal to cushion it. Make a fork seal driver from split PVC pipe and hammer seal and slider bushing back in. Remove old seal and replace retainer clip. Install dust seal.

Reinstall on bike and install spring. With bike properly supported, stand on pegs and use ratchet, extension and socket to apply pressure to spring and thread cap carefully onto top of fork tube. Reinstall metering rod holder bolt in bottom of fork using thread-locker and air-wrench. Don't over-tighten; just ue high speed to conteract tendency of metering rod to spin inside slider.

Remove fork cap again and fill to appropriate level with 5 weight fork oil (Pro Honda SS-7 or equivalent). Use turkey-baster to remove excess oil to proper level (5 1/2 to 7 inches fully compressed depending on damping quality desired).

SOURCE: how to check water level for my 2002 honda shadow sabre

the easiest way to see the coolant level is to shine a flash light up from underneth the plastic tank, located between the the engine and rear tire. now follow the fillcap located above the right side passenger foot peg. there will be a vertical one inch slot in a chrome cover. behind this slot are two very faint lines . one low, one high about a half inch apart. I found that carefully tilting the bike to the right makes it easy to see just how low the coolant is. a really small diameter piece of tubeing jammed into a tiny funnel will prevent a mess when topping off.

How do you reseal the front forks on a 97 honda shadow 1100 american classic?


The forks need to be dismantled to fit new seals, and it helps to have seal drivers and a couple of special tools to strip them down. If you want to save some dollars just take the fork legs into the bike shop, and ask them to change the seals and refill with oil. It should take them less than 1 hour if they know what they are doing.

Need to change the fork oil on a 2001 honda sabre 1100


do not compress the fork springs you must take the pressure off the springs by jacking up front end of the bic this will take some of the pressure off but be careful when removing the fork bolts there will still be some spring pressure there. drain all oil out of the shocks then you have to find out the right amount of oil and grade you need for your specific bic. hope this helps
