Loosen the castle nut almost all the way off and tap it with a rubber mallet then take the nut off and try pulling it the rest of the way out you may have to use a punch to get it through the rest of the way depending on how well lubed it is

How to change a rear tire on a ttr 125


Take the caliper off (not the brake line), loosen the chain tensioners, remove axle nut, tap the axle out, pull chain off the sprocket and remove the wheel.

Use tire spoons to remove the tire from rim. Do not use screwdrivers. You'll ding or dent the rim.

Have flat tire. How do I separate the drive shaft from the brake hub


Hi, presuming you have undone the rear axle nut, undo the brake hub stabalising bar, note order of parts removed, undo and remove brake opperating device, cable or rod, support machine remove the rear axle complete, a spacer is fitted between the brake drum and the rear suspension arm, remove this, you will then have sufficiant room to remove the wheel, from the right side of the bike, grasp the wheel top and bottom and pull the wheel away from the drive shaft, some machines the whole wheel, hub and driveshaft are removed as a unit by undoing the bolts securing the rear diff to the bike, and pulling back untill the driveshaft is removed from the engine, the two are then separated by pulling or tapping apart

Need specs for changing rear and front tires for 2002 royal star venture including torx specs


I'll include the obvious, since I'm not sure exactly what you need:

Front tire - 150/80-16 Dunlop D404F or Bridgestone G705, recommended inflation 36 p.s.i.

Rear tire - 150/90-15 Dunlop D404 or Bridgestone G702, recommended inflation 36 p.s.i., 41 p.s.i. with passenger or load.

The front tire can be removed (motorcycle on lift) without loosening calipers or any other parts once axle shaft has been withdrawn; after the tire has been changed and the wheel and axle shaft is back in place, torque for the axle nut is 58 ft.-lbs (78 nm) and the pinch nut is 14 ft.-lbs. (19 nm).

The rear tire requires removal of the right saddlebag and brake caliper, as well as the axle shaft. During reassembly, the torque for the axle nut is 110 ft.-lbs. (150 nm), for the pinch nut on the swing arm 17 ft.-lbs (23 nm). Bolts for the caliper should be torqued to 30 ft.-lbs. (40 nm).

It's a good idea to lubricate the drive splines in the rear wheel and the mating shaft in the final drive while the rear wheel is out.

I have a 1993 vulcan that needs new tires. I have the front wheel off no problem, but I don't even know where to start taking the rear apart. Would appreciate any expert advice.


Easy as pie. Put bike on center stand or use swingarm stand. Remove nut from rear axle. Remove pinch bolt from rear axle, and pull axle out. Take spacer from between frame and rear brake. Remove brake strut, and brake caliper. Pull wheel out of final drive, and lower to floor. You might have to let the air out of the tire to get it out from between the final drive and swingarm. After changing the rear tire inflate it to seat the bead, deflate to get back in place, then reinflate. Put some grease on the splines in the final drive before reinstalling the wheel, this will make it easier for the next change.

How do i get the back tire off my 1982 vf 750 sabre??


put bike on support stand or jack up rear wheel. remove small plastic cover on the left side swing arm and remove nut that anchors brake drum housing to the swing arm support. remove the rear brake linkage from the rear drum. remove the axle nut and slide out axle shaft from axle housing. Be careful to notice the position of the spacer and washers. the installation is the same as removal. be sure to re-adjust the rear brake linkage. If adjusted properly prior to removal it might help to mark the position of the nut on the linkage before removing.

Removal of motorcycle rear tire/shaft driven


The final drive assembly has to be unbolted from the swingarm and it is removed with the rear wheel. Once the assembly is off the bike, the axle can be removed and the final drive separated from the wheel.
