XR650L Front wheel removal?

6 posts in this topic

:banghead: Is this front wheel (axle) threaded into the fork or is it just pushed into the cast piece on the fork and just has to be popped out. What looked like an ez removal has me stumped and with out a manual, on back order, I thought I would ask here. I wrench on alot of stuff for a living and know when to ask the pros from dover before I break it.

:banghead: Thank you, I see that now. Duhhh how could I miss it :lol:

Well I hope that helps somebody else who does a search to remove their front wheel. 4(10mm) nuts for the clamp, 2(12mm) bolts for the brake, phillips screw for speedo cable and 17mm axle. :banghead: Again thank you and I'm glad some one else has time to surf.

you do not need to remove the caliper for tire change, or for pad change. Just FYI

When putting the axle back on do you torque it all the way down (lots of threads exposed from the axle), or just partially and then tighten the 4 10mm bolts? I failed to pay attention when taking mine off.
