Twisted Fork

Recommended Posts

How do I straighten fork on both 150 and 230?  I know to loosen top and bottom fork clamps but do I need to loosen steering stem?  Does front wheel need to be off ground?  Torque specs?  Same for 150/230? Thanks.

Don't loosen anything.  Put the tire between your knees and give the bar a tug in the correct direction.

Yes you can loosen pinch bolts, loosen the axle, leave the stem nut tight, straighten up by bumping front of wheel till straight. Then retorque the pinch bolts to specs. Then snug axle, snug not tight, Bounce front end down a few times, then torque axle to specs. At least that's how I would do it. Now out on the trail the before mentioned tactics work wonders toward getting back riding.
