    These are not inverted forks, they are standard. Back to the drawing board, thanks but problem not solved.

How to change fork seals on usd forks on kwak meanstreak and how much oil to refill


Having removed the forks, you will need to undo the lower damper bolt first, this is located on the recess inside the fork where. The spindle goes through, this will then alow you to remove the oil from the fork, and the leg will then be free from the stancion moving freely down, if the fork doesnot come apart, you will have to remove the retaining clip from the seal and pull the fork apart sliding the fork leg up the stancion and sharply pulling down on it to pull the seal out, repeat this till theseal comes out, (tip) undo the fork top nut while the forks are still fitted to the bike.

How do I remove the front forks on my 2001 Kawasaki ZX-6R? Need to replace the seals and dealer tells me it would be cheaper if I remove the forks.


very easy. support the bike so the front wheel is off the ground. Remove, first the brake callipers, then the front mudgaurd, then the wheel. Loosen the clamps that are holding the fork tubes in place, and let them drop down, and remove.

Front right fork, suspension,chain guide


chain needs adjusting or new chain needed, shouldnt be that sloppy, and change both fork seals toghther, its a false economy to change just one, if you do the other will go within a month and cost you double to have the forks removed twice. these are fast bikes and need good maintenace, you would do 180mph with a dodgy fork seals and dodgy chain.

How to replace fork seal?


Angela, do you have a Clymer, Hayne, or service manual for the bike? If not you should get one, there is a lot of valuable information in there even if you don't do all the work yourself.

Replacing the fork seal requires putting the front end in the air, disconnecting everything from the front wheel (brake lines, speedometer cable if there is one), and dropping the wheel and fork tubes CAREFULLY to separate the two pieces of the fork tubes. Then grab the old seal and replace it with the new seal.

This short description is a VERY abbreviated and simplified version. It's not hard once you have done it a couple times but be very careful not to bend anything in your forks. They have springs inside them too. Change the oil while you are in there. Usually 10 or 15 weight fork oil but look in your manual. If you can't find a manual post again with your bike's year and we will see what we can come up with.
