Place bike on center stand.
Jack the front of the bike to raise the front wheel off the ground. Be careful!!!
Remove the front wheel.
Remove the front fender and cross brace.
Disconnect the brake calipers from the forks.
Remove the air connections from the fork tops.
Loosen the fork leg clamp bolts on the triple tree.
Slide each leg out of the bike. Twisting while pulling often helps.
This can also be done without removing the front wheel but you will have to elevate the front of the bike another foot or so - just disconnect the air fittings and brake calipers, loosen the clamp bolts and drop the whole front assembly.
The rubber "plugs "are the retaining pins,have to drive them out with a punch and hammer. Also,have seen a lot if vehicles that sit develop a restriction in the rubber hose that goes to the caliper, The restriction is inside the hose so you can't see it. If this is the problem,after hitting the brakes ,open the bleeder on that wheel, if fluid comes out under pressure and the wheel will turn after that, it's the brake hose.
This is not a motorcycle! but undo the axle nut or Quick release lever and remove the wheel( if it is the rear one you have to unhook the chain as well) By the sound of it you do not have the skill level to carry out this sort of work. Brakes are a safety device so need to be looked after properly.
Position bike upright so it won't tilt on lean forward with front wheel off the ground. Remove front brake caliber & secure so it dont hang by the hose.Remove the axle hold down bolts and slide axle out of wheel hub. You may have to tap it with a rubber mallet to get it started, Wheel should now slide out from between the forks. I hope this helps.
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.
Look at you bike front wheels, make sure your bike is sitting on a level ground and the steering is straight.. You will see 2 brake calipers gripping your brake disk that is your brke pads. In the middle of the caliper body there should be a Hex key bolt, use appropriate key to remove the bolt of the caliper, remove the pad, on installing new pads make sure you have open your master cylinder reservoir and removed at least half of the oil so when you compresses the caliper piston the oil doesnot overflow out.
Put in your new pads, lock them with the Hex bolt and now see how much oil is in the reservoir, if needed, top up to make it full enough. Press your hand brake while hand spinning the front wheel to test the pad gripping position, if it grabs immediately. Your job is complete.
Not a lot to it. Remove top and bottom balljoint's, steering track-rod end and brake assembly. You should'nt need to remove the brake pipe as it is flexi and when you have assemply unscrewed from the hup there should be enough movement in the pipe to let the hub come off past it.
the wheel is likely bent and rubbing on the brakes, this is assuming you have caliper brakes on you bike. If so remove the wheel, hold it by the axle and give it a spin, if it has alot os wobble in it it will need to be trued at a shop.
