Rear wheel removal & oil filter cap w/stripped bolts

I have stripped the nut on my oil filter cap and can't remove it plus my rear tire is flat and I'm in the process of removing it but can't remove the axle bolt. I don't want to strip it like I did the filter bolt. Right now I have it saturated with wd-40. I'm not sure if it's been oxidized/ rusted together but or what. Is there any remedies or suggestions on how to proceed on these frustrating removals?

Thanks in advance
Dee

I would tap the nut with a hammer then use vice grips on the filter nut. I would ensure the corect wrench is used on the axle bolt and give it a good tap as well before wrenching it off. Try the folks at

Very common issue with the small oil filter cap bolt--you can get a 15mm one off ebay for a few dollars. To get the one off that's stripped, you might try the vice grips, but I'd bet the vice grips contintue to turn that nut into a small spindle before breaking off. IF that does happen, just drill into the end of the nut, it's hollow just a short bit inside, then you can use a larger EZOut on it.

Other things to try--quick spots of heat, like a small pencil torch or propane torch, just on the filter cover--not long, only a couple seconds--the aluminum heats quick and then starts heating the bolt, yu don't want the bolt to heat.

Another trick, try to TIGHTEN the bolt, if you can seat it another 32nd of a turn, that'll break the threads free.

The axle bold should be tapered at the nut end, if so put a box wrench on the nut and while tapping gently on the end use the wrench to loosen.

How do I change back tire on a Toa Toa 50 cc scooter?


A single bolt with a cotter pin holds the rear wheel on the axle, covered with a plastic dust cap. Remove the cap, Remove the pin, then use a pry bar to hold the wheel in place while you undo the axle nut. Once removed, tap the end of the axle with a rubber mallet or use a piece of wood and a hammer until the wheel comes loose. Remove, use motorcycle tire tools to remove tire, replace tire, and remount wheel. Use a new cotter pin.

How to remove the rear wheel?


Raise the back of the bike high enough that you can drop the wheel out the bottom other wise you may have to take off a saddlebag , loosen the rear axle nut, take out the bolt, knock out the spacer , lift the caliper assembly out of the way and hang it by a wire, grab the wheel, and slide it sideways away from the final drive. The wheel should slide right off the spline of the final drive and roll out the back under the fender. If the wheel wont slide past the final drive let the air out of the tire. Be sure to coat the spline of the final drive with moly60 paste from your local Honda dealer when reassembling. On some machines the exhaust may be in the way of removing the axle. Note : On the V Star1100 you have to remove the exhaust to change the oil filter this might be the easiest option if the exhaust blocks the axle bolt. Otherwise unbolting the rear shock will also allow you to move the swing arm enough to remove a blocked axle.

On my 2004 suzuki vl 800 I want to take off the back tire on the left side where you put the gear oil does that come off with the tire


Yes, the oil reservior separates from the wheel assembly. Here is the whole process for removing the rear wheel assembly. In order to remove the rear wheel assembly, you are going to need a motorcycle lifting jack stand or similar device.

1. Stand the bike on the side stand

On the left side of the rear wheel:

2. Remove the two forward facing bolts.
3. Remove the allen head bolt with the wide head.

On the right side of the rear wheel:

4. Remove the brake adjuster nut on the end of the actuating lever.
5. Remove the Toque link nut at the bottom of the wheel assembly.
6. Remove the axle nut (castle nut and cotter pin). Move aside the now loose plastic former on the left side of the bike and remove the axle from that side. You will need to hold the castle nut while loosening the axle.

7. Place the motorcycle jack under the swing arm or chassis tubes to stabilize the rear end. Lift the motorcycle until the rear tire is just off the ground.
8. Remove the axle. When you remove the axle, the spacer under the left side cover will probably fall out.
9. Remove the three cap nuts (left side) and use a screwdriver to gently pry the wheel from the splined drive gear and place the wheel assembly on the ground.
10. Pull the wheel assembly rearward.


Reverse the process to replace the wheel.
Check the level of the final drive oil and fill as needed with SAE90 hypoid gear oil with a GL-5 rating. While you have everything apart, you should also check the brake pads and wheel bearings for wear and replace if necessary. God Bless and good luck!

What does the 16,000 mile checkup consist of?


i my advice to you is that everytime before you ride a bike you perform a service check..there have been many times that i have had seat bols vibrate loose the brake handle nut was hanging on by a thread when i checked before one ride and the rear caliper bolts vibrated loose once and the chain backup up locking nuts vibrated off. believe me it will never ever happen to me again because i spent two days at my work going out to the parking lot and little by little took axle pinch bolts main rear axle nuts adjustment nuts seat bolt nut oil drain nut oil filled dip stick radiator cap, and lockwired all the hose clamps ( because i race and this is a requirement) but im glad they made me do it...because now by just a glance you look and see wire and that means theyre tight no question about it. you dont have to hope they're tight. after sixteen (k) miles, change the plugs and air filter, and oil and filter and check wheel bearings for any play and check for proper tire wear and inflation. Might want to spray some throttle body on the carbs also.

How do i get the rear tire off a m50please email me a earltoni@hotmail.com or send a illastration diagram thanks


I am going to first post the solution here in hopes that you rank it!
I will be referring to this diagram in order to help clarify things.

Removing the rear wheel is actually a lot easier than you think. You do not need to mess around with the driveshaft at all, so don't worry about that!
On the right side of the wheel, you will first need to disconnect the rear brake line (Item 29) . Apply a load to the rear brake mechanism (Item 12) to release tension on the brake line. Once done, you can remove the little bolt (Item 35) that you use to adjust the rear brake. Once that is disconnected from the wheel, you need to then remove the bolt that secures the brake mechanism to the frame. You can see the hole that is raised from the surface on Item 6. This bolt just simply keeps the braking mechanism in the wheel from spinning freely as you ride. Once that is disconnected it is time to move on to the axlerod.
There is a slotted nut (Item 21) and a cotter pin (Item 22) on the right side of the bike. Bend the longer part of the cotter pin down so that it can be removed from the slotted nut. Once removed, use a 22mm socket or use the 22mm tool that came with the bike. I used a PVC pipe as a breaker bar in order to get enough leverage to break the nut loose. After you have the nut removed, you now just have to carefully tap the axle (Item 19) out the other side. Make sure to read the tip in the next paragraph! There is a plastic cap on the other side. That will just pop off once the axlerod has translated far enough. I used a long flat head screwdriver and progressively drove the axle out.
To make it easier to remove, lower the bike so that the wheel is slightly touching the ground. You want to take the weight off the axle as much as possible. If the wheel is floating in the air freely, the weight of the wheel, tire, and swingarm arm are all on the axle. If the tire is on the ground completely, the weight of the rest of the bike is on the axle. So there is a balancing act you must do to relieve the axle the weight. The tire must be touching the ground at least a little bit. It is all a matter of how much it should be touching.
Once you have the axlerod out, you will need to remove the drum brake, but that is just free and you will see that it will just fall away from the wheel. This may be a good time to check the wear of the drum brakes.
Anyways, I hope that helps! Rate me please!

Oil filter


On the front of the motor at the bottom just behind the front tire. The oil filter is inside the housing. There are three small nuts and one bolt to remove before you can get to the oil filter.
