    71 CB 350K3 fork installation

    So whats the trick to getting the tubes through the tripples so I can get the top cap started??? Everytime i push them up the tubes go down and I cant get them through the trees.

    Also, does anyone have a link to a PDF file service manual for this bike???

    Use the rear axle thru the top. Thread into the fork and pull up. Tighten the pinch bolt then replace axle with to bolt

    I use the breather hose and pull it up through the top.
    I believe the correct was is to remove the top clamp and tighten the bolts on the lower, then put to top back on

    Anyone know what thread and pitch the axle is?? I may just find a bolt at Lowes or Home Depot thats the same and weld a piece of straight rod to it with a Tee handle on top to pull on.

    I tried that approach too. Quicker to just take the axle out, do what ya gotta do then put it back in. I would've save a lotta gas $$ if I used my own advice. Lowes, Home Depot, Ace Hardware and local hardware stores didn't carry the size/lenth needed..

    Guess I will need to find a way to balance the bike with the front end off so I can pull the rear axle out. Thanks for the tips..Now about a service manual. Anyone got a link??

    A couple wood blocks just supporting the frame is all thats needed. It doesn't take that long and you really aren't jerking the bike around that much. It took me about an hour from start to finish..
