You need to remove the forks not the triple tree. Get the front of the bike off the ground about 8" then...Two pinch bolts of the triple tree need to be loosened, remove the brake lines. The whole front wheel assembly should slide down to get the brackets in place...place the brackets in position and slide the forks back up. You might be able to leave the brakes lines on just depends on how much slack there is...???

Or remove the calipers from the forks, leave them attached hang them off tot he side, that way you shouldn't have to rebleed the system.
HAD LOTS OF GOLDWING 75-83

FAIR WINDS,
