Im about ready to remove the rear wheel off my 998 for the first time so I can bring it down to the local shop for a new shoe. Before I do this can anyone share any thoughts or advice or tell me the difficulty for doing this? thx for everyones support!Really easy just the one nut but you'll need a 46mm socket and it will (or should) be on tight. Bike on a stand, remove the spring clip (probably held together by cable tie) put in 1st gear, stand on the brake pedal and use a long handled socket to undo the nut. To refit is the reversal, grease the threads on axle & nut and you'll need a torque wrench to torque up to 176nm (130lb/ft), refit the spring clip (note which way it came off) and fit a cable tie to it to stop it falling off - if the holes in the nut for the spring clip don't line up with one of the axle holes, then torque it a little more until one does.,,,

Removal Rear Wheel from Triumph Rocket 3


If you're talking about a jack like this:

http://www.pepboys.com/product/details/9149265/01036

then there should be tie-down points on it. Try strapping it down towards the front to try and take weight off the back end.
You SHOULD use cargo straps to tie it down anyhow, so it doesn't fall off the jack!

How to removal the shaft from the rear end to


Hello,

In order to remove the rear wheel, it is not necessary to remove the drive shaft. The first step is to get your rear wheel off the ground. The easiest way to do this is to put your bike on its center stand. However, not all bikes have center stands. If your bike does not have a center stand, you may want to buy a motorcycle lift (available from Pep-boys, or Harbor Freight). Once the rear wheel is off the ground, you can disconnect the brake linkage, and then remove the rear axle.

At this point there is nothing holding your rear wheel to the bike except for some meshing gears. Now you must lift and maneuver the rear wheel back and forth a little and eventually the final drive will work free. You will be able to slide the wheel toward the right side of the bike and then lower it to the ground.

In theory removing the rear wheel is that simple. In practice, the gears in the final drive can sometimes hold on quite tightly. This is particularly true if the rear wheel has not been removed for a long time or if your final drive is very worn. Usually being patient and persistent will pay off and you will be able to remove the rear wheel.

Sometimes it may prove easier to remove the entire wheel / final drive / drive shaft assembly first, and then separate them. In this case, the order of operations is different. Once you have the rear wheel off the ground, you can disconnect the rear brake linkage just as before. Next you can remove the four bolts that hold the drive shaft housing to the back of your crank case. Finally you can remove the rear axle and slide the wheel backwards the unmesh the drive shaft.

Regardless of which way you remove the rear wheel, it will be easier to put it back together by first attaching the drive shaft and final drive to the crank case, and then reinstall the wheel as described in the first method above.

Good Luck,
-Josh

Is it possible to change rear brake pads without removing exhaust and rear wheel


Not really. The rear-brake pads rotate inside the rear-wheel drum. Once you knock out the rear-axle bolt, you then bend-out the rear wheel. That way you could avoid having to take out the exhaust.
If you have to lay the bike down on its side to facilate the wheel removal, do so.
