How do you take off the front forks?

Recommended Posts

I have a 04 kx 125 that I am taking apart to powder coat the frame. I was wondering how you get the forks off. Do you need a special tool?

Undo steering stem, and front fork clamps (lower and upper front part of triple clamps). I would be sure and have a torque wrench for putting them back together.

Loosen the top clamp, the bolts on the side holding the forks and the big nut on top. Once loose, tap with a malet till it comes off. From there you can slide the bottom clamp with the stearing stem attached if the front wheel is off. Don't forget to take the races out of the frame were the stearing stem goes. Use a flat head screwdriver and a hammer to get those out.
