Remove wheel, Remove axle nut(32mm), loosen tie rod nut & lightly hammer out tie rod to remove(with nut at end of thread) to avoid thread damage. Do the same with lower ball joint & use a "pickle fork" to seperate the ball joint. Knock in the axle & use a block of wood to keep from damaging the axle end in order to seperate the axle from hub & bearing assembly. Bolts that hold on the hub & bearing assembly are held on from the inside(4). Would be a good idea to either use heat(torche) to help with removal or a good penetrating fluid.

Problems with bmw r1200gs

If your speedo still works, it means the rear sensor is fine. Have you had the front wheel off lately?

If so, check the wiring to the front sensor just above the left brake caliper. Sometimes the cable is removed from the the clip and is then worn away buy the edge of the brake disk. This will cause an intermittent problem affecting both ABS and TC.

How do I remove the front wheel of my r1200rt

ou do not need to remove the discs but you do need to pull off the calipers.

you also have to loosen the pinch bolts atthe bottom of the fork tubes and remove the axle.

Make sure you have the bike supported so you can lift the front wheel.

Loosen/remove the above items and the wheel comes off

NOTE - make sure you put the spacer in the right location when re-installing.

At low speed about 30-40mph my bike has heavy front woble , only if i take my hands of the bars

first check front tyer is not worn out,,ie have bumps in tred,, and wheel bearings and head race bearings then fork bushes,, then balance road wheel, ,,,if all are in good order,, get a long straight bit of wood and check that it tuches all parts of the road wheels frount and back by holding it on the road wheels this is to check that both road wheels are in a straight line and not pointing in different directions,,,
some bikes dont like some tires,, have you just had new ones fitted,,
a bmw will throw you all over the road if you fit the wrong tires on it,,and it will still play up if there over half worn down too,,
