This has bee a problem for others. From what I've read in the pictorial section, people use a screwdriver to wiggle it out. You might want to go to the pictorial section and read for yourself. I believe it also has to come out on the right side.

if you have a long skinny punch you can try to knock it out from inside the bolt hole. Just make sure not to damage the threads. You might also consider heating it up with a commercial heat gun (not sure if you should use a torch since the fork lower is aluminum I believe.

Try taking the weight off the front wheel as you pull the axle out.

Lead bead filled rubber mallets work very well without damaging threads.
Be sure to lubricate the axle before putting it back in.

Thanks for all the tips. I got the front wheel off the ground and have used a hammer and a punch still nothing. I have never had a axle be this hard. I got a couple more tricks,If they dont work then air hammer will be brought in to duty and will probley have to replace the axle. Is this a common problem on the silver wing?

Umm, I never had one come out this hard. I can turn the axle with a small screw driver but it wont come out. I just asked if it was a problem cause Hi-YO said others have had the same issue.

Have to say this is the first that I have been made aware of. I know a few have needed a bit more force but not the lengths you seem to be experiencing!

Things like rear/front wheels and exhaust, I 'fiddle' with at least every year purely because I know they are the most common parts that need removing for wheel changes etc.

Just out of interest have you checked a diagram just in case something obvious has been missed?

No I havent, If you have one you could post I will be more then happy to look at it. I have worked on alot of different bikes,but that doesnt mean I have over looked something or missed something,speaically as ticked off I was last night trying to get it out. LOL. Thanks.

OK, just looked at my manual and I cannot see anything like a circlip or anything that would result in stopping the axles removal. Once the axle nut is removed and the pinch bolts slackened you should (according to the manual), simply pull the axle out!

The axle is tapered to are you trying to remove it the wrong way perhaps?

Sorry if I sound patronising but I'm behind my screen not in front of your bike!!! Not intending to be anything but helpful!

Waspie, You are nothing but helpful and thanks for that. As said before I work on bike often but this is my first silver wing wheel removal and Iam not perfect so I thought maybe before I go to useing alot of brut force I better double check Iam not missing something. I took the axle bolt off the left side,loosed both pinch even took them out by now, and Iam trying to pull axle out of the right side,I say left and right as if you would be sitting on the bike.

I'm wondering if the inner race of one of the wheel bearings has rusted/frozen on to the axle. You might consider unbolting the fork uppers from the steering head, removing the brake caliper and hoses, and taking the whole front assembly to a machine shop to see if they can press it out on a hydraulic press.

GOT IT!!!!!

Man that thing was stuck! This had to be the hardest axle I have ever took out. Toolbox hit with the axle rusted,I had to take a air hammer and drive the axle all the way out,even when the axle was out of the wheel I had to still drive the axle through the fork till it fell on the floor. Does anybody have a diagram of the wheel I think since we are this far Iam going to replace the spacer and bearings along with the new axle. Again thanks for all the help and tips this is a great forum!!!!

I see of that you have problems to remove the front axis I you put what I use for the disassembly with some photos for if I help you in something



First we dismantle the tweezers of brake



Second with a llave of carratraca slacken the side this where the tweezers of brakes



Third party with a key L we slacken another side in order that the central cña remains free and with a few blows with a hammer of rubber it could extract towards the side of the tweezers of brake







I wait of be of great help

I suppose you have taken the weight off the wheel
while it is suspended on the axle. this may alleviate
any problems caused by minor burrs where the
bearings run.
