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.

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

Noise from front wheel of motorbike


Tread pattern can affect road noise considerably. Did you select a type designed for dirt? It would be a sort of rough buzz. Check for correct air pressure. An incorrect tire mounting usually causes a 'lumpy' ride and could be very dangerous at speed. Raise the front end till the wheel is clear and spin the tire. An improper mounting will show as an uneven tire pattern as the wheel turns.

Removal of front wheel


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.
