SOURCE: How do i change fork seals on a Kawasaki gt 550


I was told by many people it was a hard job.
I didn't think so.

What you need is:
New Seals.
8mm Allen Key.
Half Inch Stocket bar AND Extender.
Extra Fine Sand Paper/Polishing Device.
Fork Oil + Measuring Jug.
Threaded Bar with a Two 19mm Nuts Locked to each other on one end.
Screw Drivers.

How to do:

First Get the Front end off the Ground (ALOT, Center Stand on Bricks for extra height.)

Remove Front Wheel and Brake Calipers.

Open Drain Philips Screw on Base of Fork (Both Sides). Dont Lose Rubber washer under screw. Watch Out Also for Oil Being under Pressure.

Remove Nut from TOP of Fork (Alowing Handles and mirrors to come loose).

From Top you can see down tube has Nut/Cap with a Square Half Inch center. Use Socket Bar (and Extender if needed) without Bit to Remove reach in and remove. Watchout for Spring Pressure under the Cap/Nut.

Use Screw Driver or Hook of some kind to remove Preload Spacers, Washers AND Spring from Fork.

Slide your Threaded Bar with19mm Nuts (Make sure they are Locked Tight together at one end) down into the Fork and let it catch on the Oil Damper at the base. You will know when it's cought because you wont be able to spin the threaded bar anymore. This will stop the Damper from spinning while you undo the Allen Bolt at the very base under the fork (Outside).

Use Allen Key to remove Bolt from Underside of Fork While having someone or somthing hold the Threaded Bar form spinning.

Now look at the Old bust/leaking Oil Seal. There will be a Clip/Locking Spring in a Groove holding it in place.

Remove Clip without Damaging any part of clip or fork.

If Everything above was Done, you can now give the slider( Bottom Part) a big tug and it will all come lose.

One Part of the Oil damper will either fall off, or be left in the slider(Bottom Part). It slides over the Damper in the base of the tube.

Clean Everything.

Clean Again.

Polish Tube.

Clean Again.

Remove Two Split Washers from base of Tube and Copper Washer. Remove Old Oil Seal.

Place New Oil Seal on Gently.

Replace back on Copper washer, followed by two split washers.

Use Grease as a kind of glue to hold the part of damper that fell off back on.

Slide Slider back onto Tube.

Screw Allen Bolt back into base of slider as per originally was (Remeber to hold Threaded Bar if it starts spinning)

Push Gently new Oil Seal into Fork Slider for Snug Fit. Be Gental.

Replace Clip/Spring over top of Oil Seal Locking it in place.

Remove your threaded bar from top of Fork.

Replace Spring into Fork.

Replace Philips Oil Drain Screw into base of fork (Dont forget Rubber washer).

Now: For a GT550 (I am told also KZ550 but can confirm) you need 300ml of 15 weight Fork Oil. EACH Fork. So a Total of 600ml whole Job. IN EACH SIDE YOU WILL ADD ONLY 300ml of FORK OIL. (15w)

After this. Replace any washers, Preload Spacers and so back into for.

Replace Cap/Nut into Fork Tube with Socket Wrench and Extender.

Replace Handles and Moirrors and Nut holding both of these.

Replace back onto bike the Front Wheel

Check Brake Calipers for leaks and Pad Wear. It's Very Cheap to get new Pads. Not cheap to have months off work after a crash.

Replace back onto bike Calipers.

Pushing Bike (Not ride) test Brakes and Suspension.

At This point I am thinking your done. You may need to Add Air Preload into the Fork via the Air Valve. 4PSI is a Starting Point. I have run upto 15psi. Without Air in the Preload you may find it too soft. Upto you.

Did I Forget Anything?

My Kawasaki 1983 550 GT got new starter brushes now it spins without engaging, but it did before, WHY?

You can remove the gas tank, then pull flywheel cover, you will see the starter bendix, with your fingers turn it back and forth you will see how it pushes out when turned. chances are it went bad. if you have an air impact wrench the flywheel bolt is easy to remove,

I hate to sound like a moron, but where is the engine oil fill located on a '97 Kawasaki Vulcan 1500? Every bike I've owned has had a "wingnut" looking cap located in plain view. I can't find one on this...

If you found the drain plug then I'm sure you have found the site glass for the oil on the left hand side of the crank case. Above the sight glass at the top of the crank case is a very large cap that looks like it take s a giant screw driver. Unscrew it and pour oil in.

Yes trans is lubed by the motor oil.
The final drive is like a rearend in a car. Gearlube.

I have a kawasaki gt550. i drained the oil so that i could do a service, i noticed that the oil was grey in colour and i was hopeing that you could give me an idea why this has happened as i am clueless???

hi,being air cooled it is not a problem,what has happened is that condensation(water) has formed inside the crankcase ,this has then mixed with the oil causing it to turn grey,flush the sump,change the oil,here is a little tip,over winter or long periods of no use,simply loosen the oil filler plug and let the crankcase vent,this will stop condensation forming...hope this helps..cheers

Play in the drive shaft when accelerating or deceleration

Check your u-joints, and your final drive gears. Could be play in either of the two.
