There are 2 different designs for the front fork that I will explain. First, you will have to elevate the front tire off of the ground. Usually a motorcycle jack will work the best. A regular floor jack will work provided you can get it low enough to clear the frame and a block of wood to destribute the weight evenly on the frame. Grab a roll of tape. Any tape will do, electrical, paper, scotch. Like I said, there are 2 variations of forks and axle combinations. The first is bolts located on the bottom of the axles. Simply back them out and tap the axle out with a screwdriver. The easyest way to tell if this is the axle you have, is the axle will not be completely round on both ends. The other axle is a screw out axle. A simpler design. You will have a hex bolt on one side. The oposite end is threaded and backs out like a giant bolt. You do NOT have to remove the brakes to remove the wheel. As you drop the wheel after removing the axle, simply put some tape over the brake pads to keep them from sliding out. Remember to remove the tape when you put the wheel back on. That should do it. Good luck.

My 2001 impala has the rear drivers side wheel locked up. it will turn backwards but not forwards and it is front wheel drive. Anybody know anything about this?


Could be the break caliper or a bad wheel bearing. You will need to remove the wheel and physically see if the breaks are held tight so it will not turn.If not then the wheel bearing has seized.

Uneven front tire wear


I would suggest that the wheel is of centre. check your preload and fork oil. you may also have a weak spring. this will allow one fork to ride higher and cause the wheel to lean to one side.

Removing Yamaha rear tire (1100 Classic)


do you mean remove the wheel? tires are best left to a shop to do as they have the machine. drive shaft yes? undo all bolts thru frame to final drive casing. slacken wheel nut but do not remove spindle, pull wheel back and out of the frame the drive shaft comes with it, tace out spindle and now lift final drive from wheel, there may be a spacer which might fall out. done deal..
