Little help? Rebuild forks. Older Honda CB's - November 2, 2007, 01:28 PM

Anyone have experience with rebuilding forks on older Hondas. I've got a '82 CB750F and just acquired a '83 CB1100F that both have leaking fork seals. I'm somewhat capable, but have not done it before. I would appreciate help/supervision from someone with practical experience that would supplement instructions from a clymer's manual or "how-to" website. Generally, If I see it done once - I can do it again. I'm in Tysons Corner, and have a garage, but could trailer the bikes if I had to.

I just did this the first (and second time) on some dirt bikes. I couldn't believe how easy it really was. Here's a good guide on inverted forks which may or may not help much since your's are probably standard: http://www.mxboards.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=20

after you drain all the fluids (bolt on bottom, or cap on top)

1. take out outer dust seal
2. take out C clip that is under the dust seal
3. have a friend hold one end, and you hold the other.
4. compress and pull (like tug a war) hard, one yank at a time.
5. it will come apart.
6. take all pins out that hold the seals in.
7. install new seal
8. put back in and use a manual press to put the seal into place. (looks like a metal tube that you bang down to put the seals in.
9. install c clip and dust seal...try to replace this.

use oil level gauge to put at right level...

total time 1` hour for both.
