I know you said you don't want to remove the front wheel but here are a couple of options for that if you're interested: http://www.yakima.com/racks/bike-racks/p... http://www.hurricanecomponents.com/press... If you don't want to remove the front wheel then you'll need to use a type of rack that has the hook arm or cradles to hold the bike. Thule makes a version of the T2 for truck beds....it's pretty nice. Or just use a hitch rack....the T2, Yakima, and Saris are all pretty decent and it's a snap to load and unload the bikes. They're all in the $320-$360 range, but it's a good investment.,,,

How to change front wheel


Support the motorcycle with the front wheel off the ground.
Remove the caliper mounting bolts and remove the caliper
Place a plastic or wooden spacer between the brake pads in place of the disc. Then, if the brake lever is inadvertently applied, the pistons will not be forced out of the caliper.If the pistons are forced out, disassemble the caliper to reseat the pistons.
Insert a drift or screwdriver through the front axle hole on the right side to prevent it from rotating.
Loosen and remove only the left side axle nut.
On the right side, loosen the fork slider axle clamp nuts
Prior to removing the front axle, note the location of
the right side spacer and left side spacer. The spacers must
be reinstalled on the correct sides during installation.
Withdraw the front axle from the fork sliders and front wheel.

Change front brake pads, 2002 FXD


For 2002 DYNA to replace front brake pads FIRST remove the front master cylinder reservoir cap because as the pistons are pushed back into the caliper the fluid level may rise and you will need to see this and may have to remove some excess fluid, the3n loosen but do not remove both (12 pt/0.25 in.) pad pins, remove both 10 mm caliper mounting bolts, detach and remove the caliper from the front forks and brake disc, pry the pads back to force all four caliper pistons fully into their bores, with the pistons retracted, remove the pad pins and brake pads. The front left, front right (if present as not present on all motorcycles) and the rear brake calipers use the same exact brake pad set. On the right side of the vehicle, the pad with the two tabs installs on the inboard side of the caliper and on the left side the pad with the two tabs installs on the outboard side of the caliper. Install new brakepads into caliper with the curved portion of the pad facing the rear of the motorcycle, loosely install the pad pins until you hear an audible click, attach the caliper to the front fork, on models with dual front calipers check the alignment of the brake discs to the calipers. Loosen the axle pinch bolt nuts, tighten the axle nut to the proper torque, insert a 7/16 in. drill bit through the hole in the axle as far as it will go so that the contact point will have the edge of the drill bit touching the edge of the fork leg, place the caliper over the brake disc with the bleeder valve facing upwards, loosely install the long 12 pt/10 mm mounting bolt into the top hole on the fork leg, install the short 12 pt/10 mm mounting bolt into the bottom hole on the fork leg, tighten the bottom mounting bolt to 28-38 ft-lbs (38.51.5 Nm), final tighten the top mounting bolt to 28-38 ft-lbs (38.51.5 Nm), final tighten both pad pins to 180-200 in-lbs (20.3-22.6 Nm)., on models with dual front calipers, tighten the pinch bolt nuts while holding the slider against the 7/16 drill bit if necessary, remove the drill bit, pump the brake hand lever to move the pistons out until they contact both brake pads, verify the piston location against the pads and if the front wheel is off the ground, rotate it to check for excessive brake pad drag, check the brake fluid level in the master cylinder and fill it to the proper level if necessary using D.O.T. 5 SILICONE BRAKE FLUID, install the master cylinder reservoir cap and tighten its cap screws to 6-8 in-lbs (0.7-0.9 Nm), turn ignition switch ON pump the brake hand lever to verify operation of the brake lamp, test the brakes, test ride the motorcycle and if the brakes feel soft or spongy, bleed the system until you get a firm/hard brake lever and avoid making hard stops for the first 100 miles (160 km) to allow the new brake pads to become conditioned to the brake disc(s).

Change front tire


Remove brake caliper mounting screws from where they mount on the front forks. Slide caliper off brake disc and secure caliper
out of the way. Do not operate the front brake lever with the front wheel
removed or the caliper pistons may be forced out. Reseating the pistons requires disassembly of the caliper. On models with dual disc brakes, remove both calipers.

Remove axle nut lockwasher and flat washer from axle on left side of vehicle.

On right side of vehicle, loosen nut on pinch screw. Pull axle out of hub while supporting wheel.

Remove spacer and front wheel assembly.

Keep track of where each of the different size spacer went so you can put the back in the same order when reassembling.

For reinstall, you should get a manual as you will need to get torc specs. and other spacing and assemble instructions.

I want to take off rear tire so i can replace it,please help


Place on Center stand, Remove both side panniers, lids first, then the 4 nuts/bolts holding the panniers on, remove licence tag, remove lower rear mudguard, it attaches with 3 nuts/bolts behind licence tag and 2 bolts either side of lower pannier lower chrome, you may have to remove the muffler mounting bolt on each side, remove the bolt from the front of the brake caliper, remove the rear wheel axle, lift the brake caliper out of the way as best you can without disconnecting the brake hose, remove all spacers and washers noting where thay came from, slide wheel to the right and roll backwards.

Refit in reverse order confirming washer/spacer positioning is the same as before.

Or you can hoist the bike in the air and work from underneath, I haven't tried this method.

I have just purchased a Kawasaki 98 GPXR motorbike and need to replace the front wheel tyre. How do i go about removing the wheel so that i can take it to the mechanics to get this done?


Torque specs:

Front axle = 80 ft/lb
Front axle clamp bolt = 15 ft/lb
Front axle caliper mounting bolts = 25 ft/lb

Front Wheel Removal:

1. While the bike is still on the rear stand (but before putting it on the front stand), loosen the front axle clamp bolt with a 6mm hex bit. You do not need to remove it fully, just be sure it's loose.

2. Using the 14mm hex bit, loosen the front axle bolt. A breaker bar makes this step easier. Once it is loose you can go ahead and place the motorcycle on the front stand.

3. Using the 12mm socket, remove the front brake caliper mounting bolts. Once you have the brake off of the rotor, replace the bolts back in the caliper to prevent losing them. Hang the brake using cable ties or twine. BE SURE NOT TO PUSH THE BRAKE PEDAL! This will compress the brake pads and make it difficult to re-install. Repeat the process for the other side.

4. Once the brakes are tied off out of the way, finish removing the front axle bolt. It's helpful to use some wood to support the wheel while removing the axle bolt. Be sure to note the spacers on the wheel between the forks and the wheel. Remove them so they don't get lost. These will need to be greased before reinstalling.

5. Installation is the reverse of removal. Be sure to replace the calipers and torque them to 25 ft/lb. Once the front axle bolt has been torqued to 80 ft/lb, be sure to drop the front to the ground and bounce the front forks 4-5 times. This will seat the forks on the axle. Then you can tighten the front axle clamp bolt to 15 ft/lb.

How do you remove front rim from motorcycle


the following options are.
1 - Remove the brake hose holder bolt (#1) with a 8MM socket. Snug
2 - Remove the 2 caliper mounting bolts (#2 and #3) with a 12MM socket. 29 ft/lbs Remove the caliper and connect a zip tie to the upper hole where you just removed the bolt, to hold the caliper up. Do not let it hang by the hose!
3 - Repeat on opposite side.

4 - Remove the wheel axle pinch bolt (#4) I believe its a 6MM hex bit. 14 ft/lbs
5 - While holding the wheel, remove the axle (#5). Take a 3/8" spark plug socket from craftsman, remove the rubber boot inside and then use an extension to loosen it 52 ft/lbs
6 - When putting the wheel back on, just reverse the order and make sure to put grease on the axle.

Do I need to remove the rear tire on my 2003 harley davidson softail deuce to replace the brakes?


You do not have to remove the wheel according to the manual, but if you wish to remove the caliper you will need to remove the wheel....There are no caliper mounting bolts on the Deuce, the caliper is mounted through the rear axle. TO change the brake pages loosing the pad retaining bolts (2) then push the caliper gently towards the rotor and then pull it gently away from the rotor. This will free up enough space to get the new pads in. Remove the pad retention bolts and replace pads and tighten everything down.
