fork reassembly
« on: December 01, 2017, 06:54:17 PM »
2017 XRt ...... have forks apart to replace springs with 0.95 kg/mm rate

While draining the oil on the right fork upside down (with smaller damper rod out)
the small spring and red thing came flying out ..... not sure order or direction they go
back in (see picture) ??????
........ also nothing like that was in the left fork (sound right?)

The damping cylinder in the left hand fork is for compression damping while the damping
cylinder in the right hand fork is for rebound damping.


Thanks,
Eric

I’ve no idea how the fork is reassembled but maybe this exploded diagram from World of Triumph will help:

Good luck - Dave

Eric,
I've not worked on those forks so can't say for sure, but i think the red thing is your damping adjuster. You should put it back in with the pointed end downwards.
Having different internals in the left and right fork is not unusual these days, so don't worry about that.

Thanks Mark !!!
Yes ...spring goes over pointed end of red "thing" ..... then pointed end
down into the fork first (inner damper rod goes over top of the red guy)
Also pretty sure there is same deal in left fork (just did not fall out when I turned over)
