If it's new, take it back to the dealer. If you mess with it, the warranty will probably be voided.

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 http://www.bikebandit.com 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

Don't use a screw driver. That means you have hydrolic brakes. Take it to a bike shop. It is relatively difficult to open w/o damage it is easy to damage. Also, pick up some disk brake spacers that you put in when you remove the wheel to prevent just this problem.

What causes the brakes to squeak loudly, and how do I fix them?


This a common problem. What I have found that works well is to change the angle at which the brake pads contact the wheel of the rim. Keep in mind that the top of the wheel moves forward (relative to the brakes), and you want to adjust them so that the brakes don't first contact the wheel with their leading edge. That is, you want the end of the brake pad that is toward the front of the bike to contact the wheel first. You might be able to bend the brakes very slightly, or you can put a little shim (a thin washer works well) between the brake pads and the lever to which they are attached - you will have to loosen the nut that attaches the brake pad, and slip the shim under it on the side nearest the front of the bike.

The disc brakes may seem like a new a completely different technology, but really they adjust basically the same as rim brakes. Both of your problems sound like the cables have too much slack in them. There is a mounting bolt for the cables at the brake, loosen that, pull the cable taught, tighten the bolt and squeeze the levers again. If that is better and the brakes don't drag, there you go.

If it still doesn't fix the brakes, then it is time to consider taking the bike into a bike shop and letting the mechanic have a look.

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.

Childs 12 inch mongoose is new, but back wheel does not spin prop


The bikes are pre-assembled by a machine that overtightens the rear axle.  I had the same problem with my daugher's 12 inch huffy princess bike and my other duaghter's 16 inch Schwinn bike.  If you loosen the nuts on the back axle it fixes the problem.  I have read that the idea thing for these bike is to have them re-assembled and re-lubricated by a bike shop, but I thought this might cost as much as I paid for the bike.
