Need to Remove Front Forks 1991 CR250

Recommended Posts

I have my bike stripped down for sanblasting except for the Front Forks. How could I remove this in pretty much one piece. They were just rebuilt and cleaned 4 months ago so no need to do anything to them. I just want them off so I can sandblast the frame. Thanks in Advance.

Remove your bar pad & you may have to remove your bars but you shouldn't if you have the correct tools, remove front # plate screw, loosen the 4-10mm bolts on the sides of the upper clamp (don't loosen the 4 on the lower clamp) then loosen & remove the 22mm (I believe its a 22mm) steering stem nut & washer, unhook your kill switch, bump upwards on your bars evenly or side to side to not bind it on the fork tubes until the upper clamp ex ex is removed, pull out upper steering stem bearing & seal, pull lower clamp & stem/remaining front end parts out of goose neck, put bearing & seal, upper clamp bars & ex ex back on steering stem...

Thanks for the advice man will do tomorrow, worked on my bronco a bit today, afterwards I wire wheeled all of the spots that had some rust on the frame down to metal, all is good. No holes or thin spots I could tell. Was going to pay for a powder coated frame but decided to just prep it well and prime and shoot it.

Had my frame, swing arm & hubs powder coated for only $150 in two different colors & obviously the hubs where done in anodized red which can be pricey (frame is gloss black). $75 frame, $50 swing arm & 25 for the hubs. Of course that was with me pulling all the bearings & seals & supplying/installing the bolts & screws everywhere there where threads.

The best I could get for a quote was 150$ If I strip the main frame then another $25 for the subframe. The truth is I paid $300 for the bike, with a fully rebuilt engine lower and upper. i just cant justify spending more than half of the buy price on paint.
