1. Support the motorcycle so the front wheel is off the ground. Next remove the front wheel and fender. Remove the fork cap nuts and loosen the lower triple clamp pinch bolts. Remove the front brake caliper. Some models have a tapered end to the fork tube. Extra effort will be required to remove the tube from the crown. Loosen the top fork cap 1 to 2 revolutions. Use a soft wood block or similar tool (that will not mark fork cap finish) and tap down with mallet to loosen fork tube from its tapered fit in top steering crown. Make sure fork pinch bolts are loose. To completely remove fork of this style, unscrew the fork cap entirely. 2. Slide both fork assemblies out of the triple clamps. Unscrew the top fork tube plugs. Remove the plugs and fork springs. CAUTION: Fork caps are under spring pressure and could cause serious injury. Drain the fork oil by turning the fork assemblys upside-down. 3. Next, bottom the fork tube into the fork leg. DO NOT extend the tube while you remove the allen bolt on the bottom of the fork leg. Turn the assembly upside-down and shake the damper rod and rebound spring out of the fork assembly. Again, DO NOT extend the tube during this. Extending the tube could dislodge the internal bottoming cone, which fits on the end of the damping rod, making it very difficult to reinstall the damper rod without complete fork disassembly. 4. FOR 1″ REDUCTION IN FORK LENGTH: You must first measure the length of the O.E.M. rebound spring. Depending on the model of the motorcycle, the length will either be 1″ or 2″ long. A. If you currently have a 1″ rebound spring, you need to replace it with the 2″ long LA Choppers rebound spring (included in the kit), then reinstall the damper rod in the fork tube. B. If you currently have a 2″ rebound spring, you will need to add the 1″ long spacer, then reinstall the damper rod in the fork tube.

1. Place your motorcycle on its center stand or appropriate support stand. Slide up fork boot (if applicable) from fork leg. 2. Remove the two outer caps (6mm x 16mm bolts), and slightly loosen the inner bridge mounting bolts (6mm x 50mm bolts). 3. Position the Fork Brace assembly, so it is level side to side. Then fasten the outer caps on each side making sure it is resting all the way down on the fork tubes. The spacers provide MUST be used for adequate tire clearance. 4. Now check the bridge if it is free of tension. Move your front forks through the suspension travel. 5. Tighten the inner bridge bolts securely, and then collapse the forks completely to check for interference with any accessories or fender. Make sure you have nothing causing your suspension to bind. Slip your fork boots over the Fork Brace. Installation is now complete. Double check all nuts and bolts for tightness. Recheck all nuts and bolts after a short test ride. Periodically check bolts as part of your pre-ride inspection. * WARNING: Ride stability and handling will be greatly improved with Fork Brace, provided your motorcycle complies with the manufactures specifications. BE SURE that the front tire is properly inflated and balanced, and not out-of-round. Check to see that front and rear suspension air pressure and oil levels are correct. Failure to comply with any or all set standards may adversely affect the handling of your motorcycle

1. Remove fork springs according to instructions contained in your shop manual. For maximum performance we highly recommend that the forks be thoroughly cleaned, inspected and new fork oil installed. Note: If your motorcycle comes equipped with two fork springs in each leg (long & short), remove and discard both springs and the flat washer between the springs. If a stock spacer exits, remove it. If there is a short spring on the damper rod, do not remove it! 2. Use the recommended fork oil viscosity as noted in your owners manual with the following exceptions: GL1100 20 weight, GL1200/1500 15 weight required. See fine tuning for more in- formation. Fork oil level/volume should be checked according to the steps outlined in your authorized shop manual. Measurement of your fork oil by level is the preferred method. However, some manuals only specify a volume measurement. Due to the design of a progressive wound fork spring it will displace more oil thus requiring a maximum oil level of 5.5″ (140mm). Caution: This is not a recommendation, it is only a precautionary statement. If your manual specifies an oil level higher than 5.5″ (140mm) set the oil level at 5.5″ (140mm). (Oil level is the distance from the top of the fork tube to the top of the oil with the fork completely collapsed and the fork spring removed see figure 1.) This measurement can be made by using either one of the Progressive Suspension Fork Oil Level Adjusters (FOL-1 or FOL-2). 3. Install your new fork springs into the forks. Mechanically, it makes no difference which way the springs are installed. Some manuals will state; install the spring with the close wound end towards the bottom. This is done because sometimes there will be less spring noise. The springs will perform exactly the same regardless of which direction they are placed. Check the spacer length requirement for your motorcycle in the enclosed supplement. If not listed, you must calculate the pre-load. What is pre-load? Pre-load is the distance the spring compresses when the fork cap is installed. You may or may not utilize a spacer to achieve proper pre-load. The spacer in itself is not “pre-load”. It just helps to achieve it. Why is pre-load important? It determines the proper ride height which in turn affects how the bike handles.

Holeshot Steering Damper 12 Then he attached a wire to the damper rod, to prevent it from getting lost in the fork tube, and pulled out the stock spacer and spring. 11 The Bandit has an internal damper that’s connected to the top and bottom of the fork tube. Kevin loosened the nut to detach it from the fork cap. 5 Rich loosened the damper body clamp and slid it onto the damper. 6 Next, he mounted the damper, front and rear, using a flat washer and a locking nut as a safety precaution. Then he began the final adjustments (see sidebar for details). When finished, he tightened the bolts in the fairing bracket. 7 To install the fork brace, Rich had to first carefully cut off the plastic fork protectors. 8 He placed the body of the brace between the forks and loosely bolted each end of the brace in place. He finished by tightening all the bolts to spec. 9 The Works Performance spring kit comes with everything needed for installation. 10 With the bike on the lift, Kevin jacked up the front end to reduce the spring load. He removed the bars, loosened the pinch bolts, and removed the fork cap. Holeshot Fork Brace Works Dual-Rate Spring Kit February/March 2006 RoadBike 87 www. RoadBikeMag.com February/March 2006 RoadBike 88 16 The Muzzys kit comes with the canister, a midsection pipe, and a centerstand stop plate and bolt. 17 I removed the stock muffler, starting from where the midsection pipe joins the header. If the gasket is in good condition, you can reuse it. 18 Since the stock pipe included a centerstand stopper, Muzzys provides a new one. With the muffler removed, I mounted the stop plate to the centerstand pivot bolt. 19 I carefully eased the Muzzys midsection pipe into the stock gasket, and then slid the muffler on and rotated it until the mounting brackets were aligned. 13 Kevin compared the stock spring assembly (bottom) to the Works one (top) to see if he needed to cut the provided spacer. There’s a difference of about .25″, but the instructions account for this discrepancy (years of the stock spring carrying a load), so no cutting was required.

REMOVAL Front Fork Assembly 1. Refer to the XR model section of the service manual and remove the front forks. INSTALLATION Front Fork Assembly 1. Install front forks from kit to motorcycle according to service manual instructions but do not tighten the fork bracket pinch screws at this time. 2. See Figure 1. Measure the distance from the top of upper fork bracket to top of fork assembly. Both sides must be exactly the same and measure 0.388-0.468 inch (9.85- 11.89 mm) above the top fork bracket. Align the adjustment screws inline with the handlebars (see Figure 5). is06083a Figure 1. Fork Installation Height Measurement. NOTE If new pinch screws are not readily available, use a wire grinder wheel to remove all remaining lock patch from original pinch screws, wash screws in clean solvent and dry thoroughly. Apply two drops of LOCTITE® 262 to the first 1/4 in. (6.35 mm) of the end threads. 3. Install pinch screws to upper and lower fork brackets. 4. Verify fork tube installation measurement is 0.388-0.468 inch (9.85-11.89 mm). 5. Tighten pinch screws to 30-35 ft-lbs ( (40.7-47.5 Nm)) See Figure 2. The top edge of reflector should be 1-1/2 inches (38.10 mm) below the lower edge of the bottom fork clamp. 6. Remove the adhesive backing. Place reflector in position and press reflector firmly into place to activate the adhesive. Repeat for reflector on opposite fork. REMOVAL OEM Rear Shock Absorbers 1. Refer to the XR model section of the service manual and remove the rear shock absorbers. INSTALLATION Rear Shock Absorbers 1. See Figure 3. Install the rear shock absorbers according to service manual instructions. The shocks are installed with the external gas reservoir to the rear of the shock absorbers and the thick side of the grommet installed to the frame rail mounts. is06142 Figure 3. Install Thick Side Of Grommet To Frame Rail SUSPENSION ADJUSTMENTS Front Fork Suspension Adjustment Whenever a wheel is installed and before moving the motorcycle, pump brakes to build brake system pressure. Insufficient pressure can adversely affect brake performance, which could result in death or serious injury. (00284a) Adjust both forks equally. Improper fork adjustment can lead to loss of control, which could result in death or serious injury. (00124c) Compression and rebound adjusting valves may be damaged if too much force is used at either end of the adjustment range. (00237a) NOTES Damping is set at the factory for the average solo rider under normal riding conditions. The rider may make adjustments to compensate for individual riding styles and varying road conditions. Evaluating and changing the rebound and compression damping is a very subjective process with many variables and should be approached carefully. The front and rear preload setting will need to be adjusted for the rider’s weight and cargo. This adjustment should be made before the motorcycle is ridden any distance and after changing the overall vehicle weight (adding saddlebags, etc.). If the preload adjustment is correct, and you have the rebound and compression damping set at the factory recommended points, the motorcycle should handle and ride properly. Changes in the load carried requires changes in the preload setting(s). Carrying less weight than was used for setting up the suspension requires decreasing the amount of preload. Increasing the load carried requires adding more preload. The following tools are needed to make suspension adjust- ments. • 5 mm hex key (front fork preload adjustment tool). • Spanner wrench with extension handle (shock absorber preload adjustment). • Screw driver (front fork damping adjustment). 1. Front fork preload adjustment: a. See Figure 4 and Table 1. Using the 5 mm hex key, turn the preload adjuster counterclockwise until it stops. This is the minimum preload setting. b. Turn the preload adjuster clockwise the recommended amount specified for the rider weight
