Very easy. support the bike so the front wheel is off the ground. Remove, first the brake callipers, then the front mudgaurd, then the wheel. Loosen the clamps that are holding the fork tubes in place, and let them drop down, and remove.

Hi, can you tel me what size hex socket i need to remove the front wheel on my kawasaki zx6r g1

Something tells me you are trying to remove the axle by turning it out?? There is no pressure on the forks. The axle is locked on by 2 set screws or bolts on the bottom of the forks. If there is a nut on the axle, it is easily spun off with an adj wrench, pull out the bottom bolts, axle comes out. That is how most bikes are set up, Unless the kawasaki came up with something different. check it out.

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.

Sorry the only way to get to the shifter fork in the trans is to remove the engine and take the top end off and split the case's. That's a huge job and cost's allot to do.

Attempted to drop forks through yoke but went too can i rectify?

Buy a front paddock stand that fits into bottom of steering stem. This will lift your front wheel off the ground. Remove calipers and front wheel. Slide the forks back down carefully ensuring they drop out all the way and smash radiator. Use vernier caliper to measure amount of fork protruding above top yoke and make sure they are the same. About 10mm max
