Any one have any info on this procedure, i.e. sequence, torque specs etc.

Thanks

Which bike?

On my GS you remove the brake calipers, jack up the front end a bit, loosen the axle clamp screw, unscrew the axle, and pull the wheel out. Watch out for the spacer on the left side. Careful with the ABS ring if your bike has ABS.

Axle torque: 50 Nm
Axle clamp screw: 19 Nm
Front brake caliper screws: 30 Nm

Again, that is for my GS. Might be different for your bike.

Bikes "manual" should have all the play by play actions.
Dealers also have manuals.
Something you don't wanna make a mistake with...:whistle

There will be appearing shortly in the DIY section of Hexheads - a complete DIY for removing both front and rear wheels of an RT (and the process should apply to most of the hexheads.)

Not sure about an RT, but on my GS I only have to remove one brake caliper. I suppose it might be a little easier to reinstall the wheel with both removed but I've never had a problem doing it my way.

i find it much easier removing both, from my perspective one thing less to wrestle with.

a definate 6 of one or half a dozen of another :lurk
