Hello,

I was looking over my bike the other day and noticed a hole in the front axle on the right side where a cotter-pin might sit. Been trying to find pictures to see if one is supposed to go there or not.

Any comments?

Hi Blaz,

That hole helps you hold the axle whilst tightening the nut on the opposite side to torque specs. I use a large punch tool.

X2 or to help you pull the axle out with a large punch or large phillips head screwdriver

If it makes you feel better you can put a cotter pin in there. ;)

Normally you would find a hole through the threaded part of an axle , so the pin would keep the axle nut from falling off or loosening. As the other end of the axle is on solid piece... Putting a pin in there would do absolutely nothing. I have seen one vulcan rider used the hole to attach his ride bell.
