Magnum Forks on Free Spirit?

Derf Burg (derfburg) — Feb 21, 2012 09:40AM

The forks on a FS I picked up were trashed. I traded for some Magnum spring forks to throw on there. For the life of me I can not get them to stay tight.

1. Checked number of bearings, 21 top & bottom.
2. Repacked bearings.
3. Tighten the main adjusting nut on the bearings then tighten down the large nut on the top bridge.
4. Then tighten each bolt on the forks.

It is not loose at all until I use my front brake and then it just has all kinds of slack in it. I have searched and did all the tips I could find. Is there some reason that those forks would not fit correctly on this bike?
