Re: telelevar trouble
I'm trying to picture what you're describing.....I just replaced both shocks on my LT. The front end geometry is pretty simple........just fussy to work on because of access. I doubt any of the main nuts came off, either from the shock, or the telelever......possible....but seems unlikely.
Sure sounds like something broke. The shock, the telelever itself, or at the apex ball joint on the fork bridge.
If the bike was elevated so the forks extend as far as possible, it should be easy to look around with a flashlight and inspection mirror and see what happened. One possible down side is, if the shock needs to be replaced, the tank has to come off to give access to the top nut.
