Quite common to get the parts in the wrong order. You should bave a shouldered spacer and a flat washer.
so looking from the back of the wheel...on the right side you should have the following..
wheel
shouldered spacer with shoulder into wheel.
brake caliper bracket
flat washer
swingarm.

if the washers are in the wrong order it pulls caliper against rotor causing the drag

There is oil leaking onto my back tire &rim. Is there any thing i can do to stop this?


I own the same bike, this all depends on where exactly you are leaking the oil from, I know for myself, I had to replace basically the whole top end of the motor and all the gaskets, are you sure that its oil and not brakes?

Separate final drive from rear wheel


Take the rear axle off , unbolt and hang the caliper, grab the wheel with both hands and slide it sideways off the final drive spline. Once the axle and spacers are off the wheel is just resting on a spline shaft sticking out of the final drive. If the tire does not roll out the wheel well because it is too tight , let the air out of the tire. Be sure to grease the tire spline with Moly 50 paste before reassembly. Moly50 grease is available at the local Honda dealer.

I have a 05 Honda Shadow sabre vt1100c2. I need to change the rear tire on it. How do i do step by step?


Center stand the bike,loosen the rear axel nut, take out the bolt, knock out the spacer , unbolt the bar going to the brake panel, Unscrew the brake adjuster nut, remove the brake panel, 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 won't 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

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.

Rear brake rotors on a 2005 F150stx


Shouldn't be too bad at all. If you have done brakes before. Remove tire, after securly jacking up vehicle and putting on some sort of solid object ex. axle stand. Then remove the caliper, should be two hex head slide pins or "bolts" persay. Then hang the caliper so you do not stretch or crack the brake line, use a piece of mechanics wire or something. Then the disk should pop off with a little persuasion. If not the parking brake is too tight. There is an inspection plug, remove that, loosen e-brake. Boom done. Congrats. Reassemble reverse.
