Front forks locked up on KTM SX 520 2002

Recommended Posts

Just bought the bike used. The front forks do not seem to move freely. Then bleed out excess air from the fork. Then loosened the trees and ensured the forks alignment. Then progressively reduced all dampening (top & bottom) until there was no dampening. Then progressively reduced all spring pressure.

So correctly aligned, no excess air pressure, 0 dampening, minimal spring pressure front forks that are tough to move freely. Under force, the forks move in a jerking manner as they compress and extend.

Hope you can help me correct the suspension.

If you think you have ruled out alignment problems check for bent stanchions ( the smaller OD tubes ). If you can not see a problem have the forks serviced by a pro.
