When U have the head of the bolt in the axel.....turn the tool using the inside nut.

BTW - did you locktite the bolts??

Just make sure the right side pinch bolts are loose....other than that it should come right off.

hey, not to steal the thread, but while we're on the topic of the fron axle and wut not.....will and 02 gsxr 1000 front rim fit my 04 750???? I really hope so cuz i already bought it off of ebay.....i read that they should fit somewhere in the forum, but can't find it again.....plus will the axles fit too????cuz the dealerships lied to me when they told me only 04-05 front rims will fit our bike when in fact 00-05 will fit all 750's(as long as u change the rotors)....any help is appreciated guys.

Yes to the axle being the same.

Only difference is the 04 rotors are 300mm; earlier ones are 320mm (04 has radial mounted calis). Get your rim, use 04 rotors.

Race on.

or go to cyclegear or LP for the same tool that can fit the 600rr and zx6r/rr also. not as cheap as this solution, but no worries which way to go or locktite or etc...

Something seems to be missing from the beginning of this thread, like the instructions.

I went and got my 5/8 bolt and nuts today. Total Cost: $1.25

This works great
Had to do a little grinding and lay a good weld but it worked
First tried a tack weld which snapped

You wanna know why nobody uses the search function, cause it SUCKS! If you choose one topic from the list, you better hope the info is on that post. If it's not, you get to start all over. Yeehaw! This website gets more and more useless everytime I try to use it. Shitty website if you ask me.
