    Getting my new tire and need to know how to take off the front tire and put it back on. It's super easy with the drum brake but i've never done disk brakes before. Any info would be extremely helpful!

    Never did one with a drum but just did it on mine while replacing the tire.



    Disconnect the speedometer cable. Once the axle bolt is out, the disk just slides out of the caliper. Going back on you just have to line the disk up between the pads, align the speedometer housing, make sure the outer spacers are in, then run the axle bolt through. Easy peezy.

    Whatever you do, DO NOT squeeze the brake lever with the front wheel removed. Other than that, disconnect the speedo cable, pull the axle, roll the wheel out. Pay attention to spacers. No biggie.

    Nows the time to remove your speedo cable and lube it with grease. Also check your pads for wear. As you can tell I'm one of those "while I'm here" kind of guys.
