Question 02’ gsxr750 front axle install

I have a 2002 gsxr750. I removed the front wheel. I have the 24mm Allen axle that screws into the collar that sits in the bottom of the left fork. I can not for the life of me get the axle to start threading into th collar with the wheel on. If I leave the wheel off I can feed it through the fork and thread it in no problem. But I can’t get it started with the wheel on. I can feel it grab and start to thread but just can’t get it to stay. Any tricks or suggestion please

Once the wheel is somewhat in place, but something under it to hold it at the right height so you can use bth hands to make slight adjustments.

This tire wedge is the bees knees for wheel installs.

A tip, dont force it into place. If the thread doenst grab, its in the wrong place/location. A wedge or someone could help you. Eyeball what goes wrong, maybe the suspension is turning when you apply pressure on the axle.
