Question about 1997 Yamaha TRX 850
Hi I know this sounds like a very dumb question but Ive just bought the TRX and need to get the forks out and wanted to double check how to support the front end in order to do this.
There appears to be a cutout across the front of the engine which it would be possible to slide a metal rod through and then support this on 2 axle stands. However as this is part of the engine casings Im reluctant to do this without checking first. Apart from this option I cant see any other way to chock the bike up and get the weight of the front.
Could someone give me some advice please? many thanks Jon
Hi, Infortheworks excellent question I strongly recommend you purchase a motorcycle jack they are very inexpensive and a must for the DIY weekend warrior Harbor Freight has the best bang for the buck if you live in the USA otherwise Amazon and eBay would be my next choice but for now a wooden or metal box with shims is the poor man's method and will take 2 people to get it mounted also for this scenario you will need your service/owners manual if you can't find the first and best tool you ever bought for your Yamaha, despair not, for a mere zero $0 you can download another one.

SOURCE: front fork oil
Take em off and do it right ... chances are high that your other tube seal is about to go as well, so do both of them at the same time. Even if you can't do it on your own (There may be a special tool involved that you don't have) you can still take the separated tubes to the shop, and you'll be charged alot less since you did the removal work yourself!

you should be able to saporrt bike so front wheel is off the ground then take a marker and put lines around where the forks meet the triple trees that hold them in place their should be some allen head bolts that u can loosen on front of the triple clamps once these are loose you should be able to move the forks back to strait again in line with the handle bars just line the lines up that u put on them earlier and tighten the allen bolts back up also when making the lines make them from left to right so marker is touching both fork tube and triple clamp this is only so you get can keep them the same ride hight as before
