How do i remove the front forks? i took off the nut on top and now i cant get the bearing out?

Hi There.
There is no bearing in the forks. you are trying to take aparts the triple trees.
to remove the front forks
jack bike up
remove front wheel
remove fender
loosen the clamps that go around the forks.
there are 2 triple trees, upper and lower , the upper has the nut your taking off, of course the lower is the bottom. both have clamps that hold the forks in.
then just pull and twist in a downward motion to get the forks out.

reinstallation is reverse steps.
note how much fork is sticking up through the hole in the top triple prior to removal.

if you do want to remove the triple trees and replace your neck bearings, you will have to cut the bottom bearing off, i've never been able to remove those bearings without ruiing them.
that bearing is a very tight fit.

Hope this helps you out.
thumbs up to the do-it-yourselfers
Best regards

How do i change the oil seal of the front suspension of my kawasaki 1994 zxr 750?

You need prop the bike up on front and rear stands. The fron stand needs to be the type that holds the bike up by the headtube. Remove brake calipers, front wheel, fender. Then loosen the upper and lower triple clamps. Loosen the clip ons. But before loosening the lower triple, loosen the fork tube top caps.

Drop out the legs. take off the top caps, pour out the oild, and compress the spring. I'd use a fork compressor, race tech makes a nice one. Loosen the top cap from the damping rod. Remove the top cap then pump out the rest of the oil from the damper.

Next, remove the outer dust seal. Remove circlip. Then you need to just extend the fork several times quickly to "bang" out the oil seal and bushings.

The outer bushings, if they look good, need to be gently pryed off using a thin flat head screw driver in the **** of the bushing. Same with the inner bushing. Now the oil seal, metal washer and circlip all come out together. Remember the order.

Lube up the new seals with fresh oil. put back on the fork lowers in the same order they were taken off. Replace bushings at the same time if there's any brass showing. I usually do it any way since the seals seem to go at the same rate as the bushings for me.

Once back together, seat the seals. There's a tool for this, but I usually **** the old oil seal so I can get it on the lower fork tube between the new oil seal and new dust seal. and I quickly compress (bang) the fork a few times until the groove on the upper leg is showing so the circlip will lock back on. Probably not recommended but I haven't ruined a dust seal in about 20 years now.

Fill fork with proper oil viscosity and volume (don't remember how much or weight for zx7s). cycle the damper about 20 times to make sure they're full of oil too. insert spring, re-compress, lock on top cap to damping rod. screw on top cap. reassemble fork on bike. Remember to torque the top cap with the top triple clamp loose otherwise the caps can bind.

Sterring lock left key in.turned whell broke off part of do i remove lock

Right out of the book but earlier model. It should be the same.

Removal of the fork lock:

1. Loosen upper triple clamp pinch bolts, Remove upper triple clamp and handlebars.

2. Loosen fork stem bolt, Let fork stem drop down approx. 5 in.

On the left side of the steering stem there is a "half-moon" indentation that has been machined into the steering stem for the lock. Let the steering stem drop until this indentation is in full view.

3. Look on the underside of the lock on the right side of the frame and there is a lead plug driven into a hole. In this hole is a set screw that holds the lock into the frame. The book says to use a scribe to get the plug out with.

4. Unscrew the set screw.

5. Insert the key in the lock and turn partially.

6. Wiggle lock and pull until enough of the lock comes out to get a grip with pliers or other suitable tool.

7. Rotate steering stem slightly, while pulling on the lock until the lock is removed.

Do i need to take forks out to fill with oil

Yes, too much of a hassle if you dont. You should loosen the top triple clamp bolts first then loosen the top of the fork...(This is where the oil is added and measured) This makes it easier to loosen. Then loosen the bottom triple clamp bolts and remove the forks. (Of course after the front wheel is removed) Remember that the oil is measured!!!

I dropped my bike of the stand and now the handelbars are not in line with the wheel how can i fix it cheers

Typically you would loosen the triple clamps that hold the fork tubes, trap the front wheel or have some on hold it and re align the wheel with the handle bars and re tighten. The challenge with a scooter is removing covers to gain access the triple clamp.

Hope this is of some help.
