Question about 2001 Harley Davidson FXDWG Dyna Wide Glide
Please tell how to change my front tier on my 2001 wide gliud
You must have a way to get the motorcycle off the ground. Prefferably a way to raise the bike once you get everything loose but at least something to raise it high enough to get the front wheel out from under the fender.
Now, loosen and remove the axle nut. Then loosen the two nuts of the clamp on the bottom of the right fork slider. Tap the axle out from the nut end. If it's tight, screw the nut back on just far enough to protect the threads before hitting the axle too hard. As the axle comes out, mark any spacers that come out as to where they go and in what direction they are installed. Once the axle it completely out, lower the wheel straight down until the rotor comes out of the caliper. Also, if your bike is equipped with a front wheel speedometer drive unit, carefully remove the unit from the wheel and let it hang from the cable.
If you mount your own tire, make sure you mount it so that the "direction of rotation" is correct and that the bead is properly seated. Inflate the tire to it's recommended pressure.
To remount the wheel on the bike. Take something and spread the brake pads and start the rotor up betweent he pads. Insert the speedo drive unit back into the wheel with the drive tab of the unit properly aligned in the slot of the wheel. Lubricate the axle with a light coat of some sort of waterproof grease. Lift the wheel into position and start reinserting the axle from the proper side. Make sure you get all spacers installed in the position and direction that they came out of. With the axle fully inserted, put the nuts on the clamp on the lower fork slider and gently snug them. Then put the axle nut on and torque the nut to 50 foot pounds. Then tighten the clamp nuts to 18-20 foot pounds.
Spin the wheel and make sure it rotates freely and check the front brake for proper operation before riding the bike. Make sure everything is properly assembled and tightened before riding the bike. If this job is done incorrectly, serious injury or death could result.
