    My axle bolt doesnt have a nut at end. Just looks like one bolt. Trying to get it off is hard. There is four little screws on main arms of bike that join around that axle bolt. Is it ok to loosen them, maybe it might loosen the big bolt!

Simply undo the axle nut and slide out the axle bolt. You might need to take out the split pin if your bike has one.

Frount end wobble on my 1992 kawasaki voyager


So many differnt things can cause this.
worn tyre front
bent wheel
bent discs
worn wheel bearings
worn or unlubricated head bearings.
leaking fork seals'lack of fork oil

the problem can also be caused from the rear of the bike, tyre, bearings, swing arm. misaligned wheels, bent frame etc.

If this has just started happening, tyres and bearings most common.
If there has been no crash involved a lot of the possibility are already excluded

Correct procedure to remove rear tire from 2007 suzuki intruder vl1500.


Do you mean tyre or wheel.? Tyre removal requires the use of a tyre bead breaker and levers and rim protectors, once the tyrehas been broken away from the wheel all around on both sides , start tyre removal with the valve at about 1oclock insert a rim protector followed by a tyre lever and rest it against the rim protector and under the first bead of the tyre, then push the tyre into the middle of the wheel rim at about 6oclock on the rim, and keep it down while yuo push down the tyre lever against the rim pulling the tyre over the rim at the valve end, you will then need to insert another lever close to the ready inserted one to continue pulling the tyre over the rim all the way around untill removed completely, wheel removal on this bike is easy, securing the bike is not, because of the rear fender design you will have to lift the bike high enough to remove the wheel from the rear of the bike once it has been removed from the bike, Remove the securing nut from the r,hand side its a little fiddely unless you remove the exhaust silencers which is probably the best bet, remove the rear caliper and carrier from the bike, pull the wheel spindle from the left side out, it may need a slight. Knock to start from the r,hand side, then the caliper. Carrier can be removed , note order of spacers, and place in a safe place for replacment, from the right grab the wheel with both hands and pull gently untill it is removed from the diff, carefully remove from the frame takeing care not to mark the wheel or other paintwork, and not to dismount the vehicle fro its stand,

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.

I have a 2002 zx600e kawasaki , ninja. How do I remove the front tire to fix the speed assembly ?


You mean the front wheel? Get the bike supported high enough to get the wheel off, Pull the caliper, hang it up with a wire, pull the nut, pin, and a couple bolts on the fork bottom,? (some bikes) and drive out the axle, the speed control thing will fall right off, attached to the cable. Hope this helps.

Front wheel off


Securely support the bike, with the front wheel off the ground. Loosen the pinch bolt at the bottom of the fork. Remove the bolt, from the axle, holding the axle from turning by inserting a small screwdriver or rod through the hole in the other end of the axle. Remembering to account for the wheel dropping, slide the axle out, being careful to note the location and direction each of the spacers is installed.
