How free is your rear wheel when u spin it by hand ?

Just a general qn: but how free does your rear wheel spin by hand on the paddock stand ??

Mine on a 312 and even on the 1000S seems a bit stiff, ie,. it spins about 180 deg.

i know it has to turn the gear box layshaft and chain etc.. but even with the friction of the rear pads shouldn't it spin a bit more freely .. ie. at least 360dgree etc

Can you have a overtightened hub ??
Would it compress the rear wheel bearing assembly ??

Or is this normal.. ??

I'll open up the rear caliper pistons over the weekend and try , just in case its the pads/piston that are causing the stickyness..

hi spud.............you will find just the weight of the bike on the paddock stand will do this, if you use a centerstand ie: a abba stand,you will find it spins freely if not wip the spindle out and check the bearings and regrease and tourqe everything to the book....good luck

ok.. i have an abba stand, i'll try that ..

But why would the wheel be tight when using the rear paddock stand, the centre of the rear hub, where the paddock stand fits, doesn't turn .. ??

the axle turns so resistance is in the paddock stand between metal and nylon

Just looked at parts manual and can see that the stand goes into the axle, not the hub.. so both u guys are right.. i will try the abba stand ;-)

There is so much friction and drag between the chain and sprockets, and the transmission gears that the wheel isn't going to spin very far at all regardless of what the bike is sitting on. Even with the pads out. I'm lucky if I get 90 degrees out of mine, and I don't consider it a problem.

I got mine. Boy do I ever got mine.
