INSTALLATION 1. This lowering method requires replacement of the front spring spacers. This is a simple task, and is completely reversible. First, raise the front tire off of the ground before you begin. Raise the motorcycle so no weight is applied to the front wheel. 2. Cover the gas tank with a thick towel to prevent scratching. Don’t omit this…you’ll be sorry if you do! 3. If the handlebar risers are OEM (stock), loosen the handlebars in their clamps and lift them from the risers, carefully placing them on the gas tank on a thick towel to prevent scratching. This will allow room for the spring spacers to be removed from the front forks. 4. Using a small knife blade, sharp screw driver, etc. in the pinch grove on each side of the triple clamp, gently pry upwards and pop the chromed plastic covers off. These are the covers on the top of the front forks, covering the spring retainers. Below these chrome caps, you’ll find a gold anodized metal plug with a small counter bore in the center. This is the part used to retain the springs within the front fork tubes. Using an extension bar, large Phillips screwdriver, etc., press down a bit in the counter bored area of the plug to take the pressure off of the small internal “C” ring. While this “gold” colored plug is depressed, remove the internal C-ring. The C-ring is made of small diameter wire. Once the C-ring is removed, slowly release the pressure on the plug and it’ll push itself out of the top of the shock. The picture below is of the upper fork leg with the gold retaining plug removed. 5. Stick a finger into the fork tube, and slide the OEM tubular spacer up and out of the fork tube. 6. The picture below illustrates the use of a Scootworks lowering spacer with the fork spring. On the right hand end of the you’ll see a Scootworks lowering spacer. The fork spring stays in the front fork, and you’ll drop in the spacer with the desired amount of lowering. The approximate amount of lowering is marked on each Scootworks spacer. 7. Select the spacers for the desired amount of lowering. The longest spacers supplied are marked as [1] and will lower the front suspension 1″. The spacers of middle length are marked as [2] and will lower the front suspension by 2″. The shortest spacers supplied in the kit are marked as [3] and will lower the front suspension by 3″. Omission of the spacers completely will lower the front suspension by approximately 4″. 8. Install the selected spacers in the fork tubes, on top of the internal fork spring. Place the gold anodized metal plugs on top of the spacers and press them back into the fork tube. Be sure to turn the metal plug so the side with the counter bore is facing outwards. Reinstall the C-rings, and gently lower the front end back to the ground. Make sure the C-rings seat themselves in their respective grooves when the weight of the bike is placed back on the front end. Re-install the chrome caps.

Laminar LaMini Fairing Mounting Instructions

Filed Under (Tips and Review) by admin on 27-10-2010

Mounting Instructions for the Laminar LaMini Fairing The Laminar LaMini Fairing is designed to mount onto motorcycles having up to 7 inch round headlights and traditional instruments. It is attached to the motorcycle with four clamps, two on each fork tube between the triple clamps. If you plan to paint the fairing be sure to fit it first. Make sure that the front turn signals do not obstruct installation of the
LaMini Fairing. If the turn signals are located between the triple clamps relocating or replacing the turn signals may be desired. When fitting the fairing the greatest potential for damage to your motorcycle lies with the clamps or the back ends of the fairing touching the gas tank when the steering is turned to lock. Monitor this possibility each time the handlebars are turned until installation is completed, padding the front of the tank with some towels is a good idea. Let’s get started 1) Attach the shield to the rear side of the fairing with rubber washers between them, using nylon fasteners. Wrap two clamp gaskets around each fork tube. Unscrew the clamps and slip two of each around each fork leg. The worm screws should be at rear of the fork tube. Slip a clamp gasket between each clamp and fork and finger tighten the clamps. The ž”x ū ” bolts should be sticking straight out to the sides. Center the clamps spaced 3 inches apart between the triple clamps. Carefully turn the handlebars to lock in each direction to assure that the clamps do not touch any other parts of the motorcycle. If the clamp worm gears interfere the clamps may be reversed with the worms at the front side of the forks but this makes tightening or adjusting them with the fairing mounted very difficult. 2) Test fit the fairing (shown upside down in the top photo) over the headlight and in front of the instruments. Try to leave a spacing of ž inch everywhere. If required the fairing may be trimmed to match the gap to the headlight. Do the sides of the fairing cover the ž”x ū ” bolts so that
holes to be drilled through the fairing will securely receive the bolts? Looking from the side of the fairing and with the fairing located with the center above the headlight move the rear of the fairing up and down to determine the best fit to the motorcycles lines. When

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
