Default GSXR front end

Got the above on my trike ,not sure if the guy said 1000 or 1100 . Anyway I need to take the wheel off to fit a new tyre ,looking at the net it seems over complicated .is it ?

there are pinch bolts mentioned that some say loosen and others say not too.

After the calipers are off is it just a case of loosen the pinch bolts and unscrew the spindle ?

Pic best I got. seems to be a GSXR looking at the forks bottoms and the net although the net seems to go on about needing a 20 odd mm hex socket to undo the axle bolt and from what I gather keeping one side pinch bolts tight stops shaft rotating ..

Mine just looks to have a threaded spindle and the pinch bolts so I suppose just loosen pinch bolts and unscrew spindle ..

BTW just going off what the guy told me about the forks ..

nearly sorted it now , re wire this weekend ,made all the loom. seats re covered ,new tyre today .stripped and painted chassis etc . just paint after I get it through an MOT ..

Sorted . simply unscrew the spindle after loosening the pinch bolts.not sure why so many posts and vids about doing it ... certainly made a simple job sound like a mission ..

On another forum I saw someone asking about a problem with his bike, people suggested the oil should be checked and topped up - he thought that was going to need a trip to the bike workshop! Newer riders just have no clue about doing their own maintenance nowadays.
