From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Unusual "trailing bottom link" on a Honda RuneA motorcycle fork is the portion of a motorcycle to which the front wheel and the handlebars are connected, usually incorporates the front suspension and front brake, and allows the rider to steer and balance the motorcycle. In the case of a telescopic fork, it consists of two fork tubes (sometimes also referred to as forks) which hold the front wheel axle and a triple tree which connects the fork tubes and the handlebars, perhaps through a riser, to the frame with a pivot that allows for steering.














The fork, along with its attachment points on the frame establish the critical motorcycle geometry parameters of rake and trail, which in turn contribute to wheelbase.

The front brakes are connected to the fork, and act against a rotor or drum attached to the front wheel. The front fender is also usually attached to the front fork.

The fork, how it is implemented and adjusted, plays a major role in defining how a motorcycle handles, especially how much it dives during braking.[1]
