    CB750 DOHC Fork Interval Question(New problem updated)

    The axle was the original one that I took off the bike. That being said, I did take the whole front wheel to a shop to have them fabricate the spacer collar, so they might mixed it with other parts. I have looked on eBay and found that my axle is actually too long for the same year and model. I...

    CB750 DOHC Fork Interval Question(New problem updated)

    I have read the FSM several times to make sure everything is assembled in the right way, but there's must be something I was missing. After several days of cursing and trying, I still couldn't figure out a way to get them sitting right, it's frustrating. Can anyone help me to measure how far...

    CB750 DOHC Fork Interval Question(New problem updated)

    I tried it. One end of the axle is sitting right in the halfmoon while the other end is not sitting right. The other halfmoon will be sitting on the hex shaped section of the other end of the axle(forgive my poor English...), so it looks like the axle is too long for the fork legs interval

    CB750 DOHC Fork Interval Question(New problem updated)

    I measured it. The distance between triples and between the lower triple and the top of the dust seals are exactly the same, if not close enough. Also they look pretty parallels without bending to my eyes. Could it be wrongly assembled front wheel axle ? I'm no expert to this bike as it's my...

    They are original. I will try to clean off the inner surface with some paint stripper and see how would that go.

    CB750 DOHC Fork Interval Question(New problem updated)

    Ok, I disassembled the whole fork and made sure everything was assembled right. Fork tubes look straight(they should be as they are new), springs are new, the two forks' length look identical. But after I mounted them onto the triple clamps, they don't look parallel. Tried to mount the front...

    CB750 DOHC Fork Interval Question(New problem updated)

    Disassembled the forks and checked. I forgot to mention that I did not put fork spacers in as I still don't know the length that I need to cut them (they are PVC tubes along with the Progressive Spring), so the spring is not forcing against the damper rod and thus the front wheel mounting is...

    CB750 DOHC Fork Interval Question(New problem updated)

    Given the fork tubes are new and the lower legs are unlikely easy to be bent, I suspect the powder coating inside the triples is messing up the fork set up. I will double check tomorrow, maybe take the whole front end off and go from there

    CB750 DOHC Fork Interval Question(New problem updated)

    Re: CB750 DOHC Fork Interval Question The tarozzi fork tubes arrived today. They absolutely made mounting process a lot easier. However, after fitting the lower fork legs onto the front wheel, it seems that the fork is not sitting properly (as seen in the attachment), the other side seems fine...

    CB750 DOHC Fork Interval Question(New problem updated)

    Re: CB750 DOHC Fork Interval Question They quoted me over $500 for the fork tubes, ends up buying Tarozzi fork tubes from ebay for $400. I'm kinda nervous about buying used forks as they could be bent too so as well just buy new ones.

    Re: CB750 DOHC Fork Interval Question Ok, did a quick check. The fork tubes are bent in a bad way. Now my mission is to find a pair of replacement. Man, aren't they expensive and hard to find!
