    I am also interested in this, as mine needs removing shortly and I have been contemplating whether to do it myself or not!

    It looked easy enough to me when my tyre fitter removed the front (and back) wheel.

    Tools required are:

    T30 Torx
    T40 Torx
    6mm Allen key
    8mm Allen key
    30mm Socket
    Large flat blade screwdriver
    Hammer

    1. Remove 4 T30 bolts from mud guard (2 each side) so it just lifts up to allow wheel to roll forward
    2. Remove Both calipers by removing 4 8mm Allen key bolts (2 each side) let the calipers hang
    3. Remove 4 6mm Allen key bolts on underside on folk ends (2 each side)
    4. Support bike ready for front wheel removal with front wheel slightly off floor
    5. Remove 30mm socket from clutch side of axle
    6. With the large flat blade screwdriver & hammer knock the axle all the way through from front brake side using notch in end of axle
    7. Their will be a spacer either side, the wider spacer belongs on the clutch side with ABS ring
    8. To remove the the disk from the wheel use T40 torx (bolts will be VERY tight if first time removal)
