No idea on torque. Never taken mine off but I belive its standard righty tighty, lefty loosey. Wont the clamps on the bottom of the forks hold it from ever loosening anyway, even if you dont have the exact torque?

i think the torque is 72.5 ftlbs. and you loosen the 2 pinch bolts on the side withe the allen fitting loosen the axle and then loosen other pinch bolts and remove axle

Incorrect, on that generation GSXR you NEVER loosen the leftside pinch bolts (leftside as if you are sitting on the bike). Loosen right side pinch bolts then remove axel with universal front axel tool ($20-ish at Cyclegear) or you can make your own ghetto fabulous one for about $2-$3. Torque is 72.5ft lbs but I never tighten my front axel to spec because if you over torque it you can cause stiction in the forks but I safety wire everything so I'm safe in that respect.

Thanks for the input guys, I kinda made my own ghetto fab tool, as i live in the middle of nowhere so hard for me to get the the parts stores or dealerships. Is that nut reverse threads or is it just standard lefty to get her off..?
