Front Wheel removal

Hey everyone, I am looking at removing my front wheel soon, but I was just making sure I have everything I need to do it. I got all the tools, but ive heard mixed answers on needing thread locker and axle grease.

From my understanding I need to remove both calipers, loosen the right pinch bolts for the axle, remove the axle bolt loosen the left pinch bolts and slide the axle out.

When I reinstall the front wheel what is the proper instructions? just reverse the removal instructions or are there other things that I should watch out for? Also if anyone knows the torque specs that are needed for the pinch bolts and the axle bolt that would help out a ton.

Re: Front Wheel removal

Torque wrench is needed. Thread locker is not.

Reinstall is basically backwards but not quite IMO

I install wheel and slide axle through. Snug up axle bolt (no pinch bolts yet). Lower front wheel and bounce suspension a bit (dont touch brakes, you dont have them mounted yet remember). This aligns left fork leg. Torque left pinch bolts. Torque axle. Torque right pinch bolts. Install calipers, torque caliper mounting bolts. Done
