I am trying to figure out a way to support the bike up so I can remove the front wheel and forks so I can change the oil.

I don't have a manual. But I also need to know how to remove the steering bearings.

My front suspension clanks when I hit the front brake :( and it's been over 40 k miles since ive changed the front fork oil.

Thanks

Remove the tank and support the front half of the bike by looping 2 straps around the front frame area near the steering head. Then, hang the bike from an engine hoist or other apparatus. Thats how I did my last wheel change.

Oh, and once you take the top triple off, you should see the top bearing. After you take the front end off, you should have access to the lower bearing.

If you don't have an engine hoist you can use some 2x4's in your garage ceiling, unless it is finished then it is harder. But you could put a pair of hooks each rated for 200lbs(overkill) for the front and then put a strap through that. I did this when I completly took apart my Speed Four.

I use a endless chain(block and tackle) for the mentioned task.I put a towel over the tank in case the chains rub or have someone hold then out as i'm lifting.Works great,little effort.
Bucket ;D
