Hey guys,

Got a flat and tow home...

My question is, how do I remove the rear wheel?

I have a stand, check.

What tool is needed to remove the wheel?

You need a special 55mm socket, beware it's reverse thread ,

I repeat, it's reverse thread... !!!

Socket's are available at the site sponsors or Ebay.

Oh, and a torque wrench might come in hand.

Do a quick search on this site and you'll find all the info you need.

Good luck !

Cheers

Uh, have some one hold the brake while using a breaker bar. Probably 155 ft lbs of torque on that nut. Don't put it in gear and think that will hold the wheel cause it wont. Also some rear stands have a bar to block the wheel, don't use it because you can break your wheel. Use an air gun to get it off and torque wrench to install. Tight as he'll they are

That's probably not a bad idea. If you ever get a flat tyre you're not dependend on which tyre farmer to go to. I'll keep that in mind. :)

220-240Nm is 162-177lbft

the factory stand has the bar.....it won't hurt the wheel

don't want to use the bar? put a tie down through the wheel and hook the ends through the foot peg mounts

don't put it in gear.....because you can crack gears using a breaker bar

easiest way.....use an air wrench and alloy socket to loosen, bike just sitting on the ground

use a 10" extension from the left side to torque the wheel nut

USE NEVER-SIEZE or COPPA SLIP on the threads

:drummer:

If you use an impact gun... remember... say it out loud when you go to take it off...

Not a bad idea to carry a tire repair kit with you as well... I've saved my bacon twice by plugging tires. I have a phobia of getting my bikes strapped down on a tow truck..
