Inspecting And Servicing Front Fork

Clean and air dry all parts. Inspect outside of slider tubes and inside of slider for scratches, grooves, nicks and scoring. Minor burrs may be taken off with a fine oil stone. Replace all badly worn parts.

Inspect damper tube valve parts for rust and broken springs. Replace broken springs and all valve parts that are deeply pitted or otherwise in unusable condition.

Inspect slider tube plug for loose or displaced fork upper baffle cups and broken spring. Solder loose cups in place and replace any broken parts. Be sure cups are arranged with slots for oil passage on alternate sides. Improper arrangement may cause oil leak at upper bracket bolt.
