put the axle thru the wheel and tighten the 19mm, i think, axle nut: you have to put a 17mm spanner on the two flats on the axle to stop it from turing. Now look at the saddle you should see that one side has been milled away more than the other. the longer side get tightened first then the the other two can be tightened. hope that made sence

K i'll be brief with this...you really need to buy or download the factory service manual...I think the free one is in Blindstitch's signature.



Tighten axle nut first

Tighten front clamp nut

press the fork over so the clamp is level with the end of the axle shaft

Tighten the rear clamp nut

PLEASE check the factory service manual BEFORE doing this for the correct torques and a nice little drawing of how to line-up the edge of the fork with the edge of the axle shaft!
