This is a friend of mine’s 3rd gen VFR. He was riding near his home yesterday travelling at 30mph when a fox ran across the road in front of him, he braked and swerved missing the fox but managed to run into the kerb (curb) on his right hard enough to twist the forks in the yokes (triple tree). He bought it round to me with the bars pointing left when the wheel was straight and said it felt “hard” on the front. I’ve fixed many forks twisted like this so by undoing all bolts and bouncing the front end I’ve got everything straight again but it does feel very stiff, lots of stiction, when exercising the forks. The mudguard was removed as it had split in the left mounting bolt area to glue it back together, it was then I noticed the forks moving as in the video when compressing them (without applying the brakes). Is this normal or is the leg bent? F41D7F5B-018A-40C0-8E46-7CD9743B441B.MOV
