    Once the bolt is removed you can pull out the ABS Sensor

    This image shows the sensor fully removed.

    It is important to note its position when you are lifting the front end to avoid pinching or damaging the wire/sensor.

    Please note that the way the PitBull lift supports the bike it impeeds access to the pinch bolt you need to remove.

    So prior to lifting the bike I loosened the pinch bolt and loosened the quick release axle and then lifted the bike.

    Getting ready to place the bike lift under the fork legs.

    Using a T45 loosen the right (Throttle) side pinch bolt ONLY.

    DO NOT LOOSEN OR REMOVE THE CLUTCH SIDE PINCH BOLT AS THIS AFFECTS THE ALIGNMENT OF THE WHEEL

    Use an axle removal tool to remove the axle.

    This tool from Marc Parnes is used in conjuction with a 19mm wrench or socket

    As I did not want to loosen the axle when the wheel was in the air, I am breaking it free here before the lift.

    Prior to lifting make sure the ABS Sensor and Wire are clear of the lift points where the wheel stand will contact the fork legs indicated by the green arrow.

    While loosening/removing the quick release axle - support the wheel assembly to aid in the removal process.

    Pull the wheel off - pay attention to the rotors and fork tubes, it will be a little snug but will come out.

    This is the clutch side view of the spacer in the fork which should NOT have its pinch bolt loosened or removed

    After a day's rest my new tires were mounted on the bike.

    Two things to be aware of, most tires are directional, meaning they need to be mounted in a specifc manner to maximize the thread design.

    The is a mark on the tire that indicates how is should be mounted on the bike.

    Shown below is one such mark - green cricle highlight

    The other thing to confirm directionality is that the ABS ring of the wheel goes on the Clutch side

    Shown here is the tire in place, but not secured.

    A 5 step process, of which shown is 1 thru 4

    1. Insert tire in the correct orientation in between the fork legs
    2. Work the brake disks and ABS ring into position without damaging the disks, ring or fork legs. (Not difficult to do just need to go slow and be carefull)
    3. Once the hub center is in line to the axle placement, lift the wheel up to meet the axle as it is being passed thru the left (Throttle) side fork leg - Green Arrow
    4. Manually turn the axle to ensure proper thread engagement
    5. Tighten to spec
