What's the issue? Haven't done it myself yet on the Pani but know there is a special tool made to hold the axle from spinning.....

Not sure on the quality of that one but just wanted to show you what it was.

yeah the axle spins as you tighten the nut. But if you tighten the right axle clamps to hold the axle. It will not slide into position where it spose to be.
I feel as if my axle is too far in at the moment as if my forks are spread apart. I tightend everything up put the bike on the front stand and the wheel had play.
I also stripped the axle nut a couple threads. Just kept spinning never got tight. cheap fuking nut.

Yeah that tool might help. With a new axle. nut. so that way the shaft will tighten without spinning than the wheel will be centered; hopefully the cheap nut doesn't strip again & hope i can find one tomorrow in the GTA.

anyone know the size of the front axle nut people are saying 28mm but what socket would fit on the end? cuz my 28 and 29mm sockets are too small.

You should PM member zvez, he has the equipment and changes his own tires. You might also reach out to TransNone13, he's the forum's equivalent to McGyver.

...nothing special required - after sliding the axle through, tighten the pinch bolts (right side) slightly, (15nm/11ftlbs maximum - i haven't been able to find the exact torque spec, so this should be a safe number - due to the absence of a service manual) then tighten the axle nut - ez breezy


the correct way to replace the wheel/axle:

-use the special tool - it holds the axle in place while you tighten the axle nut to the correct torque ---- if you simply tighten the pinch bolts (hap-hazardly), be careful not to over tighten, or axle removal will not be too easy the next time you go to remove it

-- there should be zero play side to side....you may have forgotten, or moved the spacers ?

-- sounds like you used too much tightening power....."get control of yourself" - unless you were simply spinning the axle ?
