Jun 20, Howdy, Picked up a fairing off fleabay (reckless) and decided to follow some of the advice I found here and remove the top triple tree to remove the upper fork covers on my S. I'm no wrench at all, but it sounded pretty easy The problem is that when I removed the first of the two.

Voila top tree will slide right off. When putting it all back together make sure you have the torque spec for the top tree pinch bolts and top nut.

I re torqued the center nut to 65 ft/lbs. and the two pinch Allen head screws I made tight with the Allen wrench and a good hard tap. The bars are in a much better reach for me, mulch closeness to trees there really is no stretching on the brake lines. Dec 28, 1. Remove handle bars from top triple tree clamp. This is because the wires and the brake line are not long enough to remove the top triple clamp as a whole.
2. Loosen fork clamps with a 12mm wrench/socket combo. 3. Remove steering stem bolt 22mm wrench/socket combo. 4.
Nov 09, Removing the triple tree and placing in a vice will help. Soak in Liquid Wrench or PB Blaster overnight, use brand new drill bits, start with the smallest diameter, go shallow, angle the next larger bit to correct for off center from previous drill.
