How do u disassemble forks

Here is a diagram of your forks:
Assuming you have already removed your fork cap, you will need to remove the clip # 5 and the bolt # 18 then in a slide hammer type action, pull the upper tube out of the lower tube. There is a washer underneath the fork seal that will pull the fork seal out with the upper tube, so you have to compress the fork tube, then give it a good yank to pull the seal and separate the tubes.

A couple of tips here. First, to loosen the fork cap, loosen the top triple tree pinch bolt at each fork leg before removing the forks from the bike, then loosen the fork cap. You don't have to take the cap off at this time, but break it loose. It is very difficult to hold the fork tube and prevent it from turning once the fork is off the bike and out of the clamp. It is much easier to break it loose and leave it finger tight before dropping the forks out of the triple clamps. The key thing to remember is loosen the pinch bolt before attempting to loosen the cap. The pinch bolt applies extra pressure to the cap and can complicate the process of loosening the cap if left tight.
The other tip would be to use a 3/8" air impact wrench to loosen the allen bolt in the bottom of the fork leg. The internals will want to spin if you try to do it by hand.

I need to replace the forks on my rf900.

Any forks with the same diameter will fit in the clamps but you must consider the length of the forks, fork travel length, speedometer hook up, brake assembly mounting and wheel mounting. Chances are that your wheel will not fit the forks from a Suzuki 550 or Honda 900.

Google motorcycle salvage suzuki and see what you can find. Also, go to the site below where you can see a parts diagram for your specific bike. You will select the actual brand, year, model, etc., once you go to the site. Part numbers and prices are also shown. You can order parts from this site. In the event no price is shown on a particular part and/or the notation "Not Available" is in the description, the part is not in stock.

How do I change the oil in the front forks of a 1983 Honda Goldwing GL1100? Also where is the drain for it? Where can I access a schematic diagram for this part of the motorbike on the Internet?

you have to take the forks out im afraid. put the bike on a few blocks so you have good height to slide the forks out, take the front wheel off and mudguard. then undo the pinch bolts by the handle bars then twist the forks left and right until they slide downwards and out. then you undo the tops and tip the old oil out. If your going to do all this you may aswell change the fork seals aswell if they havnt been done for a while. Easiest thing to do is get the forks out and then take them to a bike shop and let them do it, saves you loads on labour.

I need to get new fork seals and cant find out what size the forks are so i can order a fork seal driver it an 1978 suzuki gs 750 street bike also i have never done fork seals and would like a diagram and...

Go to this site and you can download a free PDF service manual. There is a '76 manual there. It is close enough to your '78 to be extremely helpful as not much of anything changed in those two years. The listing just says "Suzuki GS750 ". Page 90 has a diagram. Page 93 says to mix 50/50 10w30 motor oil and standard ATF (automatic transmission fliuid) for the fork oil. You do not need to tear down the forks to install a new seal and the seal can be installed without the special tool.

Go to the site below where you can see a parts diagram for your specific bike. You will select the actual brand, year, model, etc., once you go to the site. Part numbers and prices are also shown. You can order parts from this site. In the event no price is shown on a particular part, the part is not in stock.
