I have a 72 CB350 k4. I'm reassembling after repainting. I can get the forks up partially up into the top clamp by holding the fork tube, but then I run out of leverage because I must then hold the fork lower and spring action negates my effort. I even tried putting the wheel on and trying to push down on the handlebars and wasn't successful.

Any ideas would be appreciated. thanks

Tap a small chisel or screwdriver into the gap where the pinch bolt goes on the upper clamp to spread it SLIGHTLY. Do this carefully. It won't take much to let the tube slide in easily.

You install forks one at a time, then add the fender, then the wheel....It's almost impossible if you try to install both forks and the fender as a unit...
