Will this Impact wrench remove rear wheel nut ?

After breaking breaker bar number 2 in one month and a fiasco at a track where it took five of us to hold the bike down and we still couldn't undo the rear nut, I've looked into a suggestion from members to get an impact gun.

I have the batteries for this unit already so its seems a very viable option.

Does anyone know if this will do the job. I've looked on youtube and all seems good and maybe a little more than I need, but don't want to shell out if it's no good.

Mate, I'd say that would do the trick.
I do have a question or two though, what have you done to avoid this from happening again ? (Lube, manual recommendations ?)
What's with the totally pointless heading, how will this ever help anybody in a future search ?

I've not done anything other than do the nut up again,,,know where near 230nm. I set the torque wrench to 190nm.
What do you lube it with and where to apply ?

Just thought as it's in general, those that want to look will.
Plus I always try and keep a title short and sweet.
Now changed.

I best get one of them then

Smile Did you search ?

There's a lot of help on this forum, you just need to look a bit harder mate, and it's not just you. There's a constant stream of "new" MV owners who seem to think that their bike is the first MV ever, not realising that we share a lot of common issue's and fixes.

Better read up some more then.

"Will this undo rear wheel nut" - Would have helped others a lot more in the future when searching for exactly this topic.

Well you better budd, the manuals have been available on this forum for years, mostly from my website, but I can share them as indicated in the Maintenance sections as well as the various model sections

Yeah fair enough,,,,,,,,,I'm a member of several forums and this one like ALL,,, the search function is next to useless unless your extremely lucky to find what your after rather that something in general.

I doubt the answer to that specific tool would be in there

In terms of MV's yes this is my first. I've had bikes for 35 years of many brands and this is the first time I've had this issue and never had to grease or lube a rear nut that I'm taking of several times a year.

In the time you took to reply with your suggestions you could have just give me the answer to the lube. I appreciate you must get frustrated with the same questions, but rather than just piping up to say have a look, you could just choose to ignore it and someone helpful with give the answer.

Thanks I'll now spend an hour looking

I have that very impact gun and it does it easy but I can also undo my wheel nut myself with a 2 foot bar. Never seize the thread on the nut and leave the mating surface dry on the nut and wheel. Have you had your torque wrench checked cause you shouldn`t need that kind of effort to undo the nut. Watch the trigger on the Makita as its an easy one to hit reverse by accident

If I just give everyone the easy answer, then I've taught you nothing, I'm not trying to be rude mate, just pointing you in the right direction.
Have you downloaded the Workshop manuals ?

I know that but when someone just comes in and says have a look,,,,,isn't very helpful either,,,,,when they know the answer.

The more times the answer is given. The easier it will be found when using the search function.
Have you thought of that,,,,,Just saying

Yes I have. I read the wheel removal section and found nothing mentioning greasing when putting back.

I did find a thread where aluminum grease has been used.

I have a tin of copper grease so trust that will suffice.

PS thanks for the manuals, I printed and took certain pages to Spain with me and was invaluable.

Perhaps you should brush up on your detailed reading skills when doing important work.

Hahah another one wants to chime in with words of wisdom.
I'm really sorry I didn't go through every manual in the MV range to find this simple answer, how silly of me!!
I was looking bike specific F3, not an F4 like you've so kindly done.
To save you the trouble its page 119 in the F3 manual and like I said, no mention of greasing.
