Wheel removal and re-installation

Here are my tutorial videos on how to remove and re-install the front and rear wheels. These should be applicable to all model years of Ninja 1000 / Z1000SX / Z1000 (as far as I know).

No need to swear when it's so easy. What I want to know is how he got his chain/sprocket so darn clean he could pull it off without even needing to wash his hands!

Great job. I had to install a new rear tire on mine in a somewhat emergency flat situation. It wasn't very pleasant and involved a lot of "winging" it.

Great videos! I subscribed to your channel when you started making the Ninja 1000 videos. By far no question, you have the best video when it comes to removing the fairing. You couldn't have made the video any better. Great job! I always look forward to seeing your new videos, thank you!

I cannot get the axle cap to loosen at all. What can I do with damaging parts?

Love your videos by the way!

At 72ft-lb spec for the axle cap, I'm using an 18in breaker. I only need 48lbs of force. I know I was giving it well over that. I'm 6'1" 240lbs. It would not move. The axle would rotate slightly though. I'm wondering if it has loctite and if so why the hell would any one do that?

In your pics it looks like your axle cams are inline and that's good. If there not now, aligned them and tighten the pinch bolts. If the cams are moving that wont help. Also when you go to reinstall the axle bolt it will help to keep every thing inline.

I originally did it after loosening the pinch bolts(that's what the video showed) then I tightened them so the cams wouldn't rotate. I'm putting my while body into it and it wont let go. At 72ft-lb, it seems like something else might be prevented the cap from turning.

If your putting your full body weight on that 18" breaker bar and nothing is moving I'd reinstall that chain and drop the bike off at the dealer you bought it at. Tell them to call you after their finished. You may be money ahead. Your approaching 400 ft pounds if your getting any bounce on it. Wow
