    Looking forward.  What is the exact procedure to remove the front wheel? I've tried everything. Can't remove the axle.

    Disengage the wheel speed sensor from holding clips and then remove sensor from its mount.
    Remover front brake calliper bolts, lift callipers off the disk and tie callipers up to avoid putting stretch on the brake pipes.
    Lift the front wheel off the ground by weighting the back of the bike (on the centre stand).
    Loosen clamp bolts at bottom of fork on the non abs ring side - do NOT loosen the clamp bolts on the abs ring side.
    Undo the axle and remove it then remove the front wheel.

    This procedure with pictures is on pages 178 - 180 of the riders manual.

    Thanks guys. I accomplished the job. Part of the directions (a key point) was written in a grey box. Makes no graphic sense so I highlighted it. Getting the tire changed now.
