I'm not sure on the 05, but on my 07, you just loosen the 4 fork bolts, remove the one axle bolt, then I use a piece of wood dowel to push the axle out..

The axle bolt is inverted and requires either a huge nut or a special tool you can get from the stealership that fits right in there.

Yeah they sell a tool that goes inside the axle to turn it, it comes in like 4 different sizes in one. You can also make your own with a bolt and a few nuts that are the same size lol.

I think you only have to loosen 2 of the fork bolts for the axle to spin.

So I'm guessing this is for Gixxers up to 05? As I know the later ones (ours) don't need that tool..

Got it out a while ago, thanks guys for the help.

We found a old bolt we used to build our house that fit like a GLOVE in the axle, talk about luck :lol


What do you think the chances are of the front axle being bent after being in a 30MPH wreck, enough to dent the rim a little bit..

The bike was ridden home, and the axle appears to be perfectly straight..

What do you guys think?

I'm glad you worked it out, I learned something new, hehe.
As far as the axle goes, can you leave the side with the bolt on it hanging over the edge of a table, and roll the axle to check it for straightness?

It's got a lip on it, on the 05 it uses it as a spacer.

Right, thats what I figured, so as per my other post, leave the larger end hanging over the edge of a table, roll the remaining on the flat edge of the table to check it for straightness, works, no?

Not sure as I've never tired it :lol I'd just rather spend the peice of mind and replace it with a $20 replacement than put it through ll these tests that who knows works :lol

rolling it on a piece of glass rather then a table is better for checking straightness/trueness :lol
