So I changed my front tire last year and on my way to pittsburgh from Long Island I made it about half way and front bearings start to grind. Luckily I was able to find a shop about 5 miles from highway where I pulled over and was able to drive slowly to shop. The Nomad is in the shop now in Harrisburgh and I got a room in hotel. Ruby Tuesday next door had 5$ martinis so really feeling very lucky about the whole thing. They couldn't fix today because the Kawi dealer had no bearings, so waiting on ups tomorrow morning. The mechanic told me that it look like the person who put the wheel on last tightened the axle after they tightened the two allen bolts that hold the axle nut. When he loosened the allen bolt the forks sprung apart. So that isnt what happened, I put the wheel on and I did it according to the manuel and I tightened the axle first and then the inside allen bolt and the outside bolt and then the inside again. That is what the manuel says and I used a torque wrench on all three bolts. So what did I do wrong? The only thing I can think of is the wheel was on the ground when I tightnened the allen bolts. Now I will be scared to ever take my front tire off myself again and have to pay someone to do it. By the way the first time I took it off that thing was way tighter than specs The dealers dont use a torque wrench, that thing was at like 120lbs and spec is 94lbs I believe. Any thoughts on this would be appreciated. The motorcycle has 16500 miles on it.
