Front Fork Checklist


- Check to see that the upper “inner” tubes are not bent or damaged

- Drain and replace fork oil - typically 10 wt. or 15 wt. special “fork oil” is used.

- When installed – make sure all pinch bolts are tightened

- Make sure the assembled forks allow for no binding (stiction) when sliding up/down

- The front fender helps act as a “fork brace”  

- If, after riding a bit, the upper forks are “wet”, the seals need to be replaced.
