Re: Having trouble removing the front axle.

I left the left fork pinch bolts tight, used the same home made tool. Stick the head of the bolt in the axle, use a deep socket that goes over both nuts. Mine came right off. I did lock-tite the hell out of the nuts and backe dthem together real tight. My two cents.

Re: Having trouble removing the front axle.

I just wrenched them together as hard as I could in a vice...

Later, I modified "the tool" by welding the two nuts together...

Re: Having trouble removing the front axle.

I just stuck the tool in a vice and wrenched them as hard as I could. I also put a good amount of lock tite on there. Will try tomorrow after the curing time is done. Maybe try JB weld if that doesn't work.
