so i've been working on my front end now for a while (wreck in june). I had it together, but i wanted to make sure everything was properly greased, while i was still working on it.
So i took off the front wheel, and did the axle and all that.
Going to put it back on, the f'in axle doesn't want to go in! It slides all the way in, but stop 1/8th inch away from the other side of wheel. I lightly hammer it, and it doesn't move at all. Then i grab it with my hand and pull it (from the end i stuck it in), and i slides right out.
wtf is going on? i purchased a complete front end off ebay, that has no damage, and the axle is straight. I'm using the same wheel from the wreck, but it was deemed to be straight.
the axle slides right through the forks w/o the wheel with no problem

wtf is going on??? it's making me so frusterated i want to knock my bike off the stand, then i'd get even more pissed cause my bike fell over, even though i caused it, and then i'd be on here making another post about my gas tank being all dented up!
