I have a 1974 Suzuki ts250l. I actually bought this bike new and have ridden it a lot over the years. It had been sitting up for about 5 or 6 years until a few days ago when I got it out and got it started. It only took some gas and about 5 kicks and it fired right up. I am cleaning it up and want to replace the rear brake shoes. I have had the rear wheel off numerous times over the years but this time I cannot get the axle out. I have loosened everything and the axle turns freely but it will not slide out. Is there anything special that I may have forgotten as far as freeing it up to get it out. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
