For sure is the axle hex hole at each end 19mm?
Im looking at big allen wrenches and don't want a mistake on this buy.

Went to the hardware store and took my '05 axle with to look at allen wrenches. The bolt head is 17mm, and the nut is 19mm. But they wanted $23.90 for one wrench! Then found a footlong 19mm allen on eBay for only 4.50, and still looking for a deal on a 17.

And still scratching head on why the 2 different sizes.

Thanks for threads like this.

Excellent write-up. Needed torque settings for the calipers and Google pulled this up.

I was torquing down my front axle but it was spinning while I was torquing it down, so I had someone stick a wrench on the left side to hold it while I torqued it down. Is this correct? You guys never mentioned anything about having to hold the axle while you torque it down, and you said to torque the axle bolt before tightening the pinch bolts..

Figured this would be a good thread to ask this question,didn't want to make a whole entire new thread.

So,I'm wanting to install my new Galfer wave rotors,but I don't own a front stand.Was wondering if it's ok to use a jack,piece of wood,and cloth to jack up the bike where the midpipe is?

Thanks for threads like this.

bolt heads and nuts are different sizes so that way you don't need two 23.00$ wrenches of the same size. so if you bought a set of 10MM - 22MM you wouldn't need a second set just to get the bolt out. Make sense?

Most likely because when you put the front wheel back on you will be fighting against the brake pads if they have shifted a little from their position.
It's simple enough to remove the calipers... 2 bolts each

Yah I took them with no problem. Just wanted to see if anyone knew the reason for it. Thanks though!

Great writeup. Helped me get my front wheel off to get a new tire mounted.

Also followed the noted torque order for buttoning things back up. No issues.

Sorry to bring up an old thread but I just swapped my tires & when I pulled the front axle it was almost greaseless so after I greased it and finished installing I went for a ride and it took me by huge surprise how smooth/quick the bars turn left/right, is this how it's suppose to be? And it just took me by surprise cause mine was basically dry?
Comments thoughts? Thanks in advance

What are you asking? If greasing the front axle will help steer the bars easier?

That's due to a new tyre. Caught me by surprise how easy the bike tips into corner with new Pilot Road 4's. I was too used to a squared off tyre.

Yea I meant to edit my post before people replied but oh well.
I was gonna say it seems that the bike wants to dip into corners so easily and I figured it would be due to having both new tires, I put on the Pirelli Diablo Rosso II's
