Diy front wheel removal, 2013 klr650

i did a little video to help others who dont know how to remove their front wheel.

this will save lots of money when you want to replace the tire. taking in the wheel to a shop is cheaper than taking in the part.
the process takes less than 5 minutes.

I assume you are going to make another separate video on reinstalling the front wheel.

Don't for get to to include instruction for getting the internal and external tabs on the speedometer drive properly back in the notches for then on the speedometer drive and the hub. Very expensive damage can occur otherwise.

Also, getting the notch on the speedometer drive over the bump on the fork to hold the drive in it's proper position is important.

xzatx,
I purposely re-index the speedometer drive so as the cable rests at 9:30 position on the 2008 and up models. Eliminates the 'S' bend of the cable, maybe for longer cable life.

GoMotor covered the drive tab alignment.
