Remove the clip on the right nut, remove the nut (remember it is reverse thread) remove the wheel. You will need a special socket for the nut.

You must at least swing the lower can over (it is designed for this). Easy stuff if you have the right tools.

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.

A picture of how it should look like.

This is how it should look like when the wheel is removed.

Unscrew the bracket and rock back and forth slightly in the exhaust pipe.


And you need the adapter to release the rim. But you probably already know.

Rear wheel removal

I presume you know its a left hand thread. Basically good luck. After two days of effort and breaking almost all tools we had, I had to cut it off with a dremal type tool. Be very careful cause I stuffed the wheel in doing this. Basically a big good luck. Interestering MV themselves are holding this is not a problem. Bastards!!! They offered no help nor didi the dealer on the basis they had nothing to offer cxause there is no problem!!!

Cheers

Wink rear wheel nut

Chappo;

the problem is three fold

1. silly amount of torque on the nut
2. galvanic corrosion between the nut/wheel/axle
3. lack of suitable lube on the threads

use Never-Seize or Coppa-Slip on the threads

if a nut is really stuck.....use a propane torch on it and suddenly cool the inside of the axle with a wet rag filled with ice.......

me, i use an air wrench on the stuck ones
