Re: question front fork removal

Are you referring to the collar nut on the ball joint (#14)?


If so you need to heat it and also a special tool would help. Attached are a couple pages from the manual, if I'm on the wrong place disregard.

Re: question front fork removal

After re-reading your post I think I was thinking of the wrong place, now I'm thinking you are dealing with #2 :


If so these pages (see attached) will probably be of more use to you, still basically the same issue.

Definitely heat, just make sure you don't overheat.
