Changing the rear tire of a 1983 shovelhead. Hows the best way to remove it?

Depends on whether the rear wheel is driven by a belt or a chain. First raise the bike off the ground high enough to get the rear wheel out from under it. Remove the two bolts that hold the rear caliper into the caliber bracket and remove the caliper and lay it aside. Do not crimp the brake hose. This will cause the inner lining to come loose in the hose and when you apply the rear brake, it will not release. If it's a chain drive, find and remove the master link of the chain. Do not allow the chain to come off the front sprocket as it can be a real pain to get back on. If it's a belt drive, remove any belt guards over the belt. Take the axle nut off and drive the axle out of the rear wheel. Make sure you make a drawing or something so that you can remember how the spacers go back on the bike. You'd be shocked at the number of request I get wanting to know how the spacers go back under all years and model bikes. I don't know all that information. Even motorcycle mechanics make drawings or mark them. With the axle out, you can move the front wheel forward to work the belt off the rear pulley. Lower the wheel and tilt it sideways a bit to get it out from under the bike. It helps if you have something that can raise and lower the bike or the wheel as needed as the wheel itself is quite heavy and difficult to manage while trying to do other things with it.

Good Luck

I put a new front tire on and cant remember which way the spacers on the front wheel go. Anybody help!!!!

You can visit and look up your bike. This may help. Use the disc brake caliper as a guide. If you put a spacer on one side and the disc does not align with the caliper, try the other spacer. That's the best I can tell you since I don't know what year or model bike you're working on.

Good Luck

No rear brakes on 1985 honda goldwing aspencade. What could be the problem ?

Check your rear brake resevoir. Fill it with Dot 4 brake fluid and proceed to bleed the brakes, If this does not resore your braking and there is no sign of a leak on the rear caliper, you will have to replace the seals in the master cylinder, or the complete cylinder.

No brakes at rear wheel of my 2005 standard goldwing. Had a new rear tire(screw/nail) put on and the service man told me.I normally slow down slow enough to use front brakes.I had installed full foot...

Try putting the bike on the center stand and get the front wheel off the ground with a floor jack. Spin the front wheel by hand and press on the rear brake pedal. The front wheel should stop. Likewise with the bike on the center stand and the rear wheel off the ground you should be able to lock the rear wheel with the foot pedal. On many Goldwings the rear pedal also operates one front disc. This is for people that refuse to use there front brakes to stop or slow there bike (80% to 90% of your stopping power is the front brake). Try bleeding the entire system front and back, you may just have air in the system. If the rear brake still does not work you may have a bad delay valve in the system. If you need to take the bike in to a shop, try to find a mechanic that is familiar with the system so they do not replace parts unnecessarily. That way you minimize your shop time and maximize your riding time.

99 hayabusa 360 tire goes flat every thee days need to change front counter and rear sproket also i need afull rear brake system there isnt one on it

It looks like Babbitts has all the individual parts needed for your bike. Check out the cost of the new parts there then Google motorcycle salvage suzuki and see what you can find off a wrecked bike. The salvage yard will normally send you the entire wheel assembly, rim, tire, brake disc, sprocket (and even the fittings if you ask and if they still have them). The cost will be a lot less than new but then again "new" is often better. Go to Please take a moment to rate my answer. Thanks

Front end shimmy on yamaha roadstar 2002.

Front wheel needs balance,and also the rear wheel may need to be centered. If someone replaced the brakes or tires and the rear wheel is off center to the front that will cause the shimmy.

I have a puncture in my front wheel of my Suzuki FXR150 2001

Lift the front wheel, use jack or put something under the exhaust. Loosen the front wheel nut and pull out the bolt. Pull out the speedometer cap. Pull out the wheel. Now you got your front wheel off your bike. The rear wheel is harder to handle. You can bring the wheel to bike workshop or you can do it yourself provided that you got all the tools.
