Hello all
I want to remove my front wheel and I want to know can I do it with eaze or should I leave it a pro? I am very capable but I have never done it before and if I do are there special tools needed? :?:

Easy job. Remove the fenders and right brake caliper. Loosen the four pinch bolts at bottom of forks then the axle nut and it will slide right out.

Mike,
Removing the wheel is the easy part. Putting it back on properly is just a little harder. You should really have a service manual for the correct sequence of installation and proper torque values. If you have not done a similar job before, not observed someone do it, and do not have a service manual, you may want to have a professional do it.
If you want to do it yourself, you should get the videos that Fred Harmon put together and/or the Honda service manual.

Torque values:

Pinch Bolts 16ft.lb.
Caliper Bolt 23ft.lb.

I believe the owners manual that came with the bike spells it all out. You have to use the feeler gauge in the tool kit to get it done right.

What say we head on over to Mike's house and watch him remove his front tire for the first time!

(Can I get an "Amen"?)
