The front fork consists of two shock absorbers connected to the frame head pipe by the steering stem and the stem head bracket. It accomplishes shock damping through spring action. Each shock absorber (fork leg) is a telescopic tube including an inner tube, an outer tube, and a spring. The forks cannot be disassembled. If they are bent or otherwise damaged, or if they do not support the front of the motorcycle properly, replace the front fork as an assembly.
