2000 Yamaha yz125 forks feel sticky

Recommended Posts

When have the bushings and oil last been replaced ?

worn bushings = binding & friction

 

Front wheel / triple clamp etc. mis-alignment and improper torquing issues as well can cause binding.

Forks are binding from not being aligned proper from triple clamp to axle. 

1.  Loosen both pinch bolts on right side.

2.   Stand over front wheel straddling tire, grab the handlebars and pull back and forth against your knees.

3.  Sit on the bike, pull in front brake, shove down as hard as you can into compression strokes.

4.   Tighten right side pinch bolts. 

 You should feel no binding at all now.
