How to straighten triple - September 23, 2009, 11:04 AM

So after my get off the triple is a little off compared to wheel. To straighten this I need to do what. Toad told me but I forgot.

Loosen triples and maybe take top one off completely, then just work the fork tubes until they align?

I am ready to meet my maker but is my maker ready for the ordeal of meeting me...

I usually remove the top triple, loosen the forks, remove the wheel.

Align forks, then insert axle then tighten triples, then reinsert wheel

You pretty much got it. Depends on where it is out of adjustment. You basiclly need to unload the front and realign everything.

Take wheel and axel off.
Mark forks and clip ons before you loosen the tripple clamps so your ride height stays the same and you keep the desired clip on angles.
Loosen fork clamps.
Remove top tripple clamp only if everything has not settled back into place after you loosen everything.
Put it all back together once everything is straightened out.

If you do need to take the top tripple off check adn replace the upper steering head bearings as needed.

Lemme know if you need any help.

God Speed Jeff! You'll never be forgotten.

I'm in the same predicament and could use some assistance. don't have a front stand so i can't unload the forks. can pay in beers and fix your computer.

I Have Nothing To Contribute.

Chicks are like jobs...all the good ones are taken and they can't pay you enough to do the ones that are available.
