help with fork wiggle diagnosis

Recommended Posts

hey there i need help w/my forks they seem to be wiggling .what could be the cause/fix for this ? the bike is a 96 rm250 and I believe them to be "USD" forks (opposite of todays big bike forks) which were rebuilt last year by mx-shock.com. after my last ride i noticed that holding the front brake and pushing for/back on the bars the bottom of the forks moves back and forth appox 1/8-1/4 inch , is this something i can fix myself being a average mechanic?

If your discription of your problem is correct, it sounds as though you steering head bearings are in need of service or replacement.
