Please excuse my ignorance, however I am in the process of installing the short front fender, and for the love of me cannot figure out how to take off the front wheel. Is there a special tool for removing the axel tube?

Yes. No other way. Good news: it take about ten minutes. I take mine on and off regularly.

Hello there
You have changed the pipes and headlight. Ditched the side panels and added (K&N?) filters. Did you experience many problems doing this? Any benefits? What are the pipes?
Thanks

No negative effects whatsoever. Pipes are British Customs drag pipes.

I used a scissor jack as far forward of the frame as I could. Lifted until the wheel just cleared the floor. No issues.
ok cheers...that area looked a bit delicate to me ....did your scissor jack go under it or di you improvise with scaffold boards under front wheel to get the sub frame up a bit?

Is it absolutely necessary to remove both front disc brakes in order to remove the wheel? I’d like to remove the wheel in as few a steps as possible as I’m just replacing the front fender.
