Front Suspension

Front Fork Inspection

Examine each fork for any sign of damage,
scratching of the slider surface, or for oil
leaks.
If any damage or leakage is found, consult an
authorized Triumph dealer.
To check that the forks operate smoothly:
Position the motorcycle on level
ground.
While holding the handlebars and
applying the front brake, pump the
forks up and down several times.
If roughness or excessive stiffness is
detected, consult your authorized
Triumph dealer.
Warning
Riding the motorcycle with defective or
damaged suspension is dangerous and
may lead to loss of control and an accident.

Warning
Never attempt to dismantle any part of the
suspension units, as all units contain
pressurized oil. Skin and eye damage can
result from contact with the pressurized oil.
