Axle must be removed. But manuals download is a great help.

Many thanking yous

I tried to download one about a week ago, could I get it to work? could I flip.

It's worked this time.

I must be about as good with computers as I am with spanners.

:waving:The axle does not need to be removed. On the Aspencade remove the speed sensor from the wheel assembly. Remove the left caliper and bracket by removing the caliper mounting bolts and support the caliper so it doesn't hang from the brake hose. Remove the right and left axle holders. Jack up the bike until the fork legs lift free of the axle and remove the front wheel.



The aboveprocedureis from the Honda GoldWing 1980-1983 Service Manual.



On my '83 Interstate I remove both calipers and both brackets which makes it a lot easier for removal and reinstallation of the front wheel/tire assembly

I thought there is a phillips screw that held in the speedo cable, that's all I did.

Unless you really wanted to grease the axle/speedo drive?

Thats right, just remove the screw to get the cable free and remove wheel. I assumed he wanted to remove the axle and speedo drive unit due to his post. Perhaps I overread it!

Yup the axle has to come out so the wheel fits on the tyre fitting machine, so all info read, digested, understood and stored for later use.



Thanks everyone:bowing::bowing::bowing:

Anybody notice what that is outside the window in the avatar pic of Roy W? Just think now, that's an airplane window and I don't think the plane is on the ground!!

Don't forget to put those axle caps back on the same way they came off and torque them the correct way.;)
