Front Wheel Installation
Apply grease to the seal lips.
Fit the collars [A] on the both side of the hub.
The collars are identical.
Insert the axle from the right side of the wheel.
Tighten the axle.
Torque - Front Axle: 108 N·m (11 kgf·m, 79.6 ft·lb)
Before tightening the clamp bolts on the right fork leg,
pump the forks up and down [A] 4 or 5 times to allow the
right fork leg to find a neutral position on the front axle.
Do not apply the front brake during this process to stop
the motorcycle from rolling forward. Put a block in front
of the wheel to stop it from moving.
Tighten the axle clamp bolts [A] to the specified torque.
Torque - Front Axle Clamp Bolts: 29 N·m (3.0 kgf·m, 21 ft·lb)
Tighten the two clamp bolts alternately two times to en-
sure even tightening torque.
Check the clearance [B] between the front axle collar [C]
and the right fork leg [D]. The clearance between the front
axle collar and the right fork leg should be between 1.05
~ 3.19 mm (0.041 ~ 0.124 in.).
If the clearance is out of this range, remove the front wheel
again and check the axle, wheel hub and other related
parts for damage.
Tighten the caliper mounting bolts.
Torque - Front Caliper Mounting Bolts: 34 N·m (3.5 kgf·m,
Check the front brake effectiveness.
Do not attempt to ride the motorcycle until a full
brake lever is obtained by pumping the brake lever
until the pads are against the disc. The brakes will
not function on the first application of the lever if
this is not done.
