08 crfx front shocks

Recommended Posts

my brand new 08 crfx, the front shocks moves a little when i pull it back and forth, is this normal? i check the tightness of the upper and lower bearing and its perfect it has no clearance. :)

Sorry, I'm just not getting the image in my head. Can you post a quick vid on youtube of what you are talking about?

THIS IS WHAT I READ IN THE MANUAL, stand infront of your crfx,grab the fork ( at the axle), look at the stearing head, and push the fork in and out toward the engine to check for pley in the stearing head bearing. if any roughness or pley is felt, but you do not see any movement in the stearing head, __the fork bushings may be worn.___ this is my concern how come that this bushing is worn when i bought the bike brand new. or is this normal that the fork has a pley..

the movement does not came from the steering head. the movement comes from the fork

put the bike at center stand,front tire not touching the ground, holding the front axle i move it in and out and found out that the SLIDER is the one moving.and not the steering. my question is, is this normal to a brand new bike? that the slider has a play..

I've got fresh forks on my 06 and will see if I have any kind of play like you have been talking about. Are your forks leaking? How many hours on the bike?

Doesn't sound right to me. Is there any oil leaking from the fork seals?

no oil leak. the bike has zero hours. just bought it brand new. it is my habit before riding it i check every thing. like re tight the bolts,steering, etc. and this is what i found out, im just curious if this is normal fresh from the dealer.

Go ride the livin sheet out of the bike if it does not leak you have no problem.
