GAU, Cali told me exactly what you're telling me when I asked him on the track last sunday. Took my last exam today so I should be able to do that test tomorrow as well as the others cali mentioned. Ill have to find a way to elevate the front end and do the tests.

I dont have the service manual for it yet but since I intend to keep the bike for a while, ill be sourcing for one. Anyone have a spare for an 02 zx6?

Thanks.

ARES, I have a PITBULL front stand you can borrow.

It has been a "long term loaner" at a another MH friends house. (since my ride is still out of commision, Ive been letting tools float) Shouldnt be a problem at all to wrangle it away though for a bit


I also have a generic fit (MOTOBOSS?) rear stand you can use as well. no spools needed. (this simply has "L" shaped rubber coated brackets for the swingarm to be picked up undereath)

If you need/want them for a few days service, let me know. I will arrange to pry them away from the other MH members hands

Thanks for the offer. I will borrow the front stand I already have a rear one.

Ill look into ordering a manual and should be here next week. Let the deconstruction begin!

you cant lift it w a front stand to check the bearing in the neck, you have to suspend the bike so the full fork/tree assembly is free to move and check.

Exactly what I thought....

I will probably put the bike on the rear stand then use a jack on the middle of the bike and have someone push down on the rear of the bike to lift the front up (is it possible to use a jack on the part near the oil drain plug?)

yup, I sent him a PM while I took at look at my bike (had been a while since I did the steering head bearing...."ahhh , he's gonna have to suspend the bike without the stand" (I got stuck on "stupid" there for a sec)

but routine wise, probably easier to check some things on the stand, rather than suspended. so by all means, that offer for stand service is there when you start taking the front apart.

True.

Mic the rotors, check the play in the floating collars. Visually check wheel for a bend and either use a dial indicator or check rotors visually as best as possible.

Remember if you're feeling a pulsation that from something turning back around... not something applying/releasing. So look for something radial not linear.

I kinda dont get that part... Right before garaging tonight I hit the brakes several times to slow down and it does feel like the forks are moving forward/back...

yah. his speak is starting to get a little cryptic lately.

somewhat concerned

I DONT THINK he would intentionally drink the kool-aid, I think some one has been slipping it to him

Thanks for the translation . When I did the rapid breaking to a stop, I can definitely feel the problem to be a forward-backward issue, mostly I can feel on the right side/handlebar.

With that said I think I know what the outcome will be when you told me to do this:

Quote:
easiest way to tell if it's the bearings in the head, just elevate the front wheel. grab the forks, and pull forward/back, and side to side. The unit should smootly turn from lock to lock as well. If not, it is possible the head is tightenend too much, or simply worn.
