How To-Front Wheel Removal

Since I did the write up for the rear, I got bored and did the front, too.
My How To for removing the front wheel from a 2005-2006.
WARNING NOW.
DO NOT TOUCH YOUR FRONT BRAKE LEVER AT ANYTIME DURING THIS PROCESS.

Tools from the toolkit. I had to use a few others to get some bolts off.
Hammer/Mallet, 12mm wrench, 14mm wrench, and 22mm wrench.


1. Support the front end of your bike. I'm using a pit bull front stand.


2. Loosen the 2 pinch bolts on the front axle bolt side FIRST.


3. Remove the axle bolt with a 22mm socket or the hard way with the tool from the kit.


4. Remove the two 14mm bolts on both front calipers and remove them.


5. Go to the other side and remove the 2 pinch bolts on that side.


6. Take a hammer or mallet and tap the axle thru the fork.


7. Lift the wheel up and pull the axle all the way thru.


8. Pull the front wheel out. Ding! Fries are done.


You should not hang your calipers by the brake lines/brake hoses.
Use bungee cords or zip ties to hang them from.

Here is the official Honda factory technician's procedure:

-Apply a thin layer of grease to the front of the axle rod & install axle from LEFT side of bike (your right side as you face the front of the bike)
-Torque axle bolt to the specified torque
-Tighten the right axle pinch bolts to specified torque.
-Install both brake calipers and tighten mounting bolts
-Check front brake operation by spinning wheel and applying brake pressure
-Lower the front of the bike, with the front brake applied, pump the fork up and down several times to seat the axle.
-Tighten the left axle holder bolts to the specified torque.

All done!

I like most others don't have a service book, I have however done this a few times. Some torque specs would complete the value of your time spent on the post...

Does the owners manual have all the torque specs in it? Never looked to see. I just call Slaps and ask him to go dig in the service Manual.

i know its an older sticky but i was wondering what the torquing sequence was for the pinch bolts.

for example on the 1000rr wheel you have to do one side bounce the forksl a few times to line everything up then the other side pinch bolts.

any ideas?

everything i have ever read has said that just torquing them down
not a good idea. if you dont do it in the correct sequence with the front end lined up the wheel will bind

Yes, you DO need to torque up in a very specific order to keep the axle from binding which can happen, I've seen it before..... If you don't know how to do something properly-- don't pretend like you do and steer others in the wrong direction. That way you do everyone a favor. Here is the official Honda factory technician's procedure:

-Apply a thin layer of grease to the front of the axle rod & install axle from LEFT side of bike (your right side as you face the front of the bike)
-Torque axle bolt to the specified torque
-Tighten the right axle pinch bolts to specified torque.
-Install both brake calipers and tighten mounting bolts
-Check front brake operation by spinning wheel and applying brake pressure
-Lower the front of the bike, with the front brake applied, pump the fork up and down several times to seat the axle.
-Tighten the left axle holder bolts to the specified torque.

All done!

Then you've never seen me R&R a front wheel. Then again I'm not a tech or a trained mechanic but I do have a service manual.

Well, I went ahead and threw that info on there.
Do you also use new bolts for the brake caliper?
You're supposed to, I didn't...
Pray for me that I don't lose my brakes.

I've pulled my front wheel many many times and reused the caliper bolts. Howerver I would say that you should replace them after you've pulled them maybe 10 times. I bought some new ones to use next time around. Be prepared to pay for them those caliper bolts are like $10 each. I'd rather replace them every once in a while than have one break and have to drill it out.

This is maybe the 6th time the front wheel has come off the bike.
So it's gonna have to be changed soon.
Might not withstand the 22ft-lbs next time.

Part # for the front brake caliper mounting bolts.

You can order it via RonAyers or ServiceHonda or walk into your local dealership and pay some more.

I know the front wheel of my bike's been on and off > 10 times and I haven't seen any wear on the caliper bolts. Throw them back on, add a little safety wire, why would you be concerned with replacing them?

that is why my brand new 600 wont even complete 1 turn on the front wheel when spun by hand

my 1000 was the same way and using the method described above it now turns 4 revolutions

i was thinking it was the same procedures but just wanted to make sure

Hey guys, just wanted to say thanks for the info, I didnt have a front stand or so i kinda improvized.

wish i would have taken a picture for you guys, but all's i did was put a wratchet strap down my rear tire and around my rear stand and lifted the bike from it's center point with a jack that was for my truck (since i cant find my hydraulic jack) and the front came up no problem... took everything off, got my wheel changed and put it back on without a hitch.

It looks like it, but it is almost impossible to do.
