PostSubject: Secret to getting the front wheel off?    Mon Jun 11, 2012 7:53 pm

I've got an 07 silverwing and today I attempted to remove the front wheel so I can replace the tires. The instructions I found on this site said loosen the 8mm pinch bolts on either side then loosen the 22mm bolt and then pull the bolt out from the right side. I tried loosening the 22m bolt but at first it was really hard. I got my breaker bar out and was able to get the bolt to spin but it wouldn't get any looser. The instuction say to then pull the bolt out from the right side. I can't figure out how do do this. The bolt is not getting any looser no matter how much I turn in. I'll attach some pics of the left and right side so you guys can see if anything doesn't look right.

On my '04, the axle comes out from the left side as you're working on the bike. It's the right side if you were sitting on the bike. You might try sticking a small metal something - screw driver or the like - thru the holes on the left side of the axle (as you're working on it), and hold it steady while turning the nut on the opposite side counter clockwise. Maybe that will provide the means to hold the axle itself still for nut removal. If this works, you should be able to relatively easily finesse the axle out. If it does start to come out, be careful to hold onto the wheel a bit so it doesn't just fall down when the axle is removed all the way.

Thanks. I ended up tapping it out with a rubber hammer from the right side if you sitting on the bike. Once I put the new rubber on I'll clean it up and apply some grease. Hopefully this will make the process easier next time.

Many people swear by Copaslip for application in such situations - ordinary grease sometimes dries out and sticks the parts together, making the situation worse.
