that is easy mate, undo the nut on the wheel , undo the bolts on the bottom of the fork legs that hold the axle, remove the axle and the front wheel comes off.

remove brake caliper from left fork leg, remove plastic protectors from that fork leg. undo bolts on top and bottom triple clamp and the fork legs comes out. Should be a 5 - 10 min job.

5-10 min for a pro... 1hr for a ameture taking his time and cleaning things up along the way..

Lots of fork oil and sand and grit and nasties everywhere...

Also had to remove the rear wheel and some other parts as well... but all is good...

I try to get the bike as clean as I can before I start taking the bike apart. :applause:
