    This DIY will cover removing and installing the Front and Rear Wheel Assembly on a 2009 KGT 1300.

    Tools

    • T20 for the ABS Sensor Bolt
    • T30 for the Fender Mounting Bolts
    • T45 for the Caliper Bolts
    • 3/8" drive torquewrench
    • Front Axle Socket - I use a Marc Parnes tool*
    • 19mm wrench or socket to use on the Axle Socket tool
    • Front Wheel Stand - I use a PitBull Stand*


    * Not affiliated with manufacturer just utilize their products

    So let's start - put the bike on the centerstand.

    Shop Tip - if you plan to take both tires off, and you plan to use a PitBull lift, you will want to remove the rear tire first.

    To remove the caliper you need to spread the pads a little - this is easily done by twisting the caliper slowly as your are pulling it off.

    As you pull back twist to push the pads apart a little.

    DO NOT ACTIVATE THE BRAKES AS THIS WILL PUSH THE BRAKE PADS OUT

    Caliper removed, now onto the other side

    NOTE - I left the caliper hanging because I was only going to be away for one day as the tires where being swapped - if you want feel free to support the caliper if so desired
