Need a inspection check list and repair manual for fron suspension 2001 harley fxdxt t-sport
Your dealer will have one or try a Chiltons manual. There is no inspection checklist per say. What is the problem with your front end? Take the bike up to 50mph, take your hands off the bars and give one side of the handle bars a quick tap, if your front end (neck bearing) is loose you will experience a wobble which depending on the severity will increase meaning you have to tighten the big nut on the frame neck. The service manual will show you the proper way to perform the fall away test which will help you get the front end adjusted properly. If you just want to change the fork oil thats easy, just put a jack under the front end to lift the front tire clear of the ground then release the drain plugs (be careful not to strip them) and let all the fluid drain out. lower the jack and compress the forks to remove all remaining fluid. Lift the front end up again Then reinstall the drain plugs, remove the big bolts from the top of each fork and pour in the required amount of hydraulic fluid to each fork and replace the caps. These front ends are pretty simple and almost maintenance free. If it looks like you have a hydraulic leak coming from the top of the sliders just double check that its not excess grease from the neck bearings leaking down onto the top of the sliders (the bottom part of your forks where the tubes move up and down into. Many bikes come into our shop with possible front end leaks that are neck grease which especially on days will work its way down your forks making it look like the front end is leaking. Buy a factory HD manual which shows you step by step the procedure for taking the forks apart for seal replacement, fall away tests etc.
