Replacing Fork Springs 05 525 EXC

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know of any links that have step by step instructions on how to change out the Fork Springs on an 05 525 EXC? I have checked the fourms but couldn't find any thing.

Thanks

dont know about step by styep here, maybe KTMTALK.

Its easy tho. Do one side at a time. Loosen top cap, put weight on front end and fork spring and cap rise up. I use a center stand lifted to loosen top cap and then drop it to have spring rise up. Pull down spring and put 22mm wrench on spring guide(the black plastic piece) the wrench may have to ground down for thickness to fit on the aluminum flats. Unscrew cap and remove spring. Inner rod will try and drop in the tube so have the fork spring handy and ready to swap. Maybe use a tool to hold it up or a second person is good too. Screw cap back on to inner rod. It will get tight and then turn some more til truly seated and tight. This has to be right cuz it keeps the fork tubes together. Screw top cap back down and do other side.

At approx. 1:15 you see him take the top of the fork apart and remove the spring.
