front suspension

Post  barker on Wed 26 Feb - 3:37

now I have put the new engine in my t80 I thought I had better check it over for the coming mot all seemed well except for the front suspension there was a bit of play so got out my front suspension repair kit,as I have a spare set of forks I decided to re furbish the set of units in them then when the time was right change them over,so this morning I set to they all came a part easerly.but when it came to putting the new parts in I was faced with a load more parts than needed after checking the Haynes manual several times I realised they had added extra parts very confusing you are trying to fit them all ,After dinner I took the front wheel out to start the change over in the manual it says disconnect the front brake and speedo ,there is no need take out the spindle drop the wheel down and take the brake plate out leaving everything connected twenty minutes later it was time to put the wheel back in only problem was the kit supplied was metric nuts were as the originals were not so I had to hunt out a another set of spanners
has any of you got a repair kit for your front suspension if so is yours the same as mine extra bits in there, I think I got mine set from john w ,any way all well with the bike now all ready for its mot
now all I need is some good weather so I can ride the bike

nothing to do with front suspicion in the Haynes manual to do the cam chain tensioner you rotate the crank shaft till the tang at the centre of the cam sprocket . whats the tang if you want to read the bit in the Haynes manual its page 22

The tang is the locator for the sprocket, it positions it on the camshaft like a key. Obvious when you look at it
