It applies to both wheels. You have to open up the brake.

Front forks on a 1987 Honda Goldwing motorcycle how to change them


Place bike on center stand.
Jack the front of the bike to raise the front wheel off the ground. Be careful!!!
Remove the front wheel.
Remove the front fender and cross brace.
Disconnect the brake calipers from the forks.
Remove the air connections from the fork tops.
Loosen the fork leg clamp bolts on the triple tree.
Slide each leg out of the bike. Twisting while pulling often helps.
This can also be done without removing the front wheel but you will have to elevate the front of the bike another foot or so - just disconnect the air fittings and brake calipers, loosen the clamp bolts and drop the whole front assembly.

Pulsar 150 cc DTSi bike. Some sort of sound is coming infront of my bike when it runs in the rough roads. Kind of sound like some part are moving infront of my bike. What is this noise ?


Hi,
This could be a number of things causing this problem.
The best thing to do is put the bike up on a bike stand so that the front is of the ground. Then pull and push the front forks to check there is not wear in the steering neck bushes.
Also check your wheel bearings that they are not rumbling when you spin the front wheel.
Check these 2 areas and let me know how you get on.
Thanks

My car vibrate at 100-120km/hr i have bought new tires and done the wheel balncing but it still vibrate and whenever i tried to apply the break at this speed it vibrate serously. it's a 2001 mazda mpv


This is due to poor settings of the wheel bearings,tyres,- check balancing once again, wheel drums/ brake pads,suspension , joints and steering.
In all the entire front suspension must be checked, the WHELL ALIGNMENT must be checked with precision and each of the wheels must be checked for damage on hub, axle or chassis.

How do you change the front shock?


to change the front suspension, its just a matter of taking off a few peices
  1. you need to take off the front wheel.
  2. remove the brakes
  3. take off the handlebar and the connector
  4. at the front of the frame of you bike there should be some gigantic nuts(as in bolts and nuts[screw]) loosen until you front suspension can be pulled off.
this is for a majority of bikes to install the new suspension just reverse the process

Whats makes the front end shake if you have replaced the brakes, roders, caliperes, and everything else that has to do with the brakes


Front end vibration has little to do with the brake system on the car. Yes you can get some "brake shudder" when you apply the brakes when you have worn brake rotors or when the rotors are not properly aligned on the hubs. However from what you have said you do not have this problem.

Front end vibrations can be caused by a number of factors some of which are listed below:



1. Front wheels out of balance. (Common problem on many vehicles).

When were the front wheels last balanced? You will get vibrations through the car and the steering wheel at particular speeds. This will/could also occur if the wheel rims have been distorted as a result of abuse.

As a first step the wheels should be balanced and then retest the vehicle for the problem.

It can be impossible to properly balance some wheels because the tires fitted to the rims are of poor quality and contain heavy spots that are impossible to correct with wheel balance weights. If you have cheap tires fitted on the wheel rims then it may be impossible to balance the wheels properly because of the imperfections in the tyre. In that case you will have a permanent wheel vibration problem which will only be rectified by fitting good quality tires and re-balancing the front wheels.

If aftermarket wheel rims have been fitted to the vehicle this can also be a source of vibration. Some wheels on the market are poor quality and can be slightly out of round and/or have heavy spots in them which can be impossible to correct when you fit the tires and have the wheels balanced. Many people think a cheap set of "blingy" aftermarket wheels are a great buy but if they are poorly built (as is often the case) you will usually have no end of problems.

2. The front wheel alignment could be out.
If the front wheels have not been aligned in the past 12 months they probably will be out of alignment. When you have re-balanced the front wheels you should have the front wheel alignment checked and then re-aligned if it is out. However if their are worn suspension components (see 4) found on the car which need to be replaced, this repair needs to be done before the front wheels are re-aligned.

3. Worn out wheel bearings in the front hubs.
If your front wheel bearings are badly worn you can get a vibration through the steering wheel. If the vehicle has done about 100000 miles or more on the front wheel bearings they should be replaced. In any event , any competent mechanic can jack up the front of the car and check for excess play in the wheel bearings.

4. Worn out suspension components. The front end of the car should be checked for badly worn suspension and steering components.

I would recommend you take the vehicle to a competent mechanic or a suspension specialist in your area and have them check the vehicle for you.

I hope this helps.

Help with the front brakes, jus bought the bike and need to re fit a new disk and pads into the calliper, as much info on this would be appreciated, alternativly if a genaral manual on the yamaha tw 125 02...


Hi glen
Replacing the disk is quite easy. Remove odometer cable, Disassembly front wheel, then screw out 6 bolts of disk. Replace disk+ fix it with bolts. Before you put back front wheel replace the old brake pads. because the new disk will be thicker, and you will be not able to slide it beetween brake pads.
Replacing the brake pads- its better to see..Here is the manual:

Saab 93 - noisy when going over bumps on the road.


Have you tried driving over a bump whilst also applying the brakes? (Right foot on gas, left gently on brake - with no one behind you!) If the noise goes away, then it could be the brake pads that are not fitted correctly. Only posting this, as this just happened to mine...the mechanic took it over bumps and noise was there. Applied brakes whilst going over bump, noise went away. Replaced badly fitted rear pads (had been bodged by another garage) and the problem was solved.
