1300 front axle.
« on: February 14, 2020, 08:09:49 PM »
I am in the process of taking the front wheel off Ruby at the moment to check bearings,and possibly grease being thrown on rim etc.
Does someone know if the axle unscrews after the bolt or just pulls out and what size hex key is required for said axle. I have searched around and not found the answer. Thanks.

This video looks pretty comprehensive.   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oMFUW8EnmgQ
I seem to remember that the axle pushes out once the end bolt and the pinch bolts are undone.

Thanks Pete. Looks good without the audio. I will watch and listen this time. As usual I didnt think of utube.
