I have read Dave's excellent info about removing the front wheel and refitting.
The only tricky bit is the speedo drive but assuming you have like me filled the speedo drive part with grease what's the secret to getting the two parts of the equation to line up ?

There is no need to fill the housing entirely, just make sure that there is enough in there to keep things from drying out. Originally Piaggio assembled them almost dry and they squealed.
Fill it below the rotor and no more so you can still see where they are.
I just put a 'toothpaste' squirt amount of new LM grease in there every tyre change.
