We purchased a Radio Flyer Stroll and Go but during assembly the front wheel was put on but was put on 90 degrees the wrong way. We are not able to get the wheel off so we can correct the wheel.


Where you inserted the handle bars into the bearing assembly on the frame there is a fork clamp you had to tighten to secure the handle bars and front fork. Loosen this and you should be able to disassemble the front end. While reassembling be sure the you line up the notches on the fork with the grooves in the bearing assembly and that the handle bars are properly aligned before tightening the fork clamp.

I have a 2000 Suzuki 1500 LC, I've got a wobble in the front end when I'm going about 30 -40 mph. I've been told that it's fork oil but not sure it has oil in it as it's got springs. Any idea what it...


A wobble that appears when slowing down is many times just low tire pressure. Check the front tire pressure should be 32-35 pds. Another thing that can cause a wobble is worn or loosely adjusted fork frame neck bearings(steering stem bearings). Disassemble around the handlebars down to the frame neck till you get the upper triple clamp off or can reach the adjuster nut , just underneath on top of the frame neck enough to tighten the steering stem bearings. You will need a shock adjusting tool (curved end with a single tooth) Comes standard in all Honda tool kits). Next, put a jack under the motor to lift the front wheel . Carefully wiggle the front wheel to see if you have a bad wheel bearing. If you do not have fork oil in your forks, you could possibly damage the chrome tubes. No oil would mean the forks would not go up and down smoothly. Do not add oil to your forks. Do not over fill your forks with oil. If you are not sure how much oil is in them, drain them and refill them with the correct amount. If you over fill the forks and drive the bike you will destroy the fork tubes.

Just built a motorbike an sidecar outfit and if you go over 25 mph the handle bars shake. does anyone no what this could be please ?


The only sure cure is leading link front forks
You can try fitting a steering damper to minimise wobble but all telescopic forked sidecar outfits tend to have a wobble at some speed, it doesn't seem to matter how you alter the lean & toe-in

Hope this helps (if so please mark as helpful !!)

The front wheel wobbles when it's on swivel, what


The wobbling front wheel problem is easily solved. Simply remove the two philips screws from the plastic cap covering the from wheel assembly on the foot plate. (Where the break cable goes into the swivel tube) Now tighten up the large black nut with a spanner, replace the black cap and your done!

Front wheel wobble out of the box.


Take the wheel off of the fork, then tighten the nut in the top of the fork. That solved it for me!

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.
