Bottomed out front suspension help?

269 Views 10 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  Gearheaded
I have a 2020 R1. Hit a pretty big pothole broke the front wheel, bottomed out the front legs and twisted the alignment to the right.

Looking for advice on what to do with the fork legs and upper and lower triple tree. Inspect and Rebuild? Or just replace everything? Thanks in advance for the time and help everyone.

Agreed- hopefully the forks are just shifted in the triples. Have a headlift front stand ? If not you’ll need to get the front supported up without using forks. Remove the front wheel/loosen clamps just enough to be able to slide forks. Use the lines at top of forks to gauge height. Make sure all is straight/even and try it out. Good luck!
