    Easy fork upgrade

    I've finally got the details ironed out for a fork upgrade. This info is courtesy of Wayne Tripp and I'm just passing along the information. The first is a very simple spacer which is placed under the spring and helps control the damping. You need to cut the top pre-load tube by the same amount...

    Corrosion on lower fork tubes

    My 08 has (had) corrosion under the clear coat on the lower fork tubes. I did finally find a product that will remove the clear coat without damage to the aluminum. The product is Martin Senour Paints #6802. However, it will not even begin to work until you heat both the fork tube and the...

    air forks

    I am going to be replacing my rear who is with a set of air shocks. I like the adjustability at the touch of a button, like Gold wings run. That got me thinking, how would an air fork be? There has to be a bike out there, like a goldwing, running air forks I could either directly swap...

    I've noticed a slight leak coming from my left fork seal so it's looking like I've got a job to do. Question is, how big a job am I looking at? Anybody done a how-to? Admittedly, I'm not much of a wrench, but I'm also remarkably cheap so I'd rather do the job myself if possible.

    Fork Oil Advice

    I'm having Progressive springs installed this weekend. Any suggestions on fork oil? Triumph manual suggests 0W in specs section and recommends 5W in the front suspension section. I was thinking maybe going up a tad to a 10W for better handling. Any thoughts?

    Upper Fork Diameter

    I know the Rocket 3 has 43mm inverted forks, however NOWHERE can I find the diameter of the upper fork tubes. I am looking at having Custom Dynamics make me some custom wrap-around LED turn signals, and they insist that my tubes (which measure 8.5 in around) are 57mm, but my math puts them...

    Fork seals

    My left fork seal is blown again. I guess I must have helped it along with the uncontrolled wheelies I did right after getting the gipro, but it was seeping even before then. This is the second blown seal, and again it is on the left. Anyone else having trouble with the fork seals? I will...

    Front forks seem to bottom out alot

    Went to a couple of bike rallies today and those bumps in the highway where water has froze made my teeth chatter a few times. It sounds like they are bottoming out but there has been no leaks. Has anyone else experienced this? Is there a fix?

    Fork end lacquer, All Blacks and American football

    My 07 Rocket has got deep scratchmarks in the lacquer of the fork ends. My bike (which is now triked) was previously owned by Marty Holah who was capped by the All Blacks about 50 times - for our US colleagues that's in Rugby - which is like playing American Football without a crash helmet and...
