remove back tire?

Alrighty folks. The next installment of the Ting Tutorial has been
posted.

How To Remove The Rear Tire and Final Drive.

Doug, I blame this on you as well. For the stats on your page, my
final drive came from a 2004 Shadow Spirit with 11K miles. Purchased
on ebay for $100 bucks. I had to swap the plastic dust guard. The
numbers on the drive are MAH-092395 / MAH-300. The final drive is a
blessing on the bike. The procedure was really easy.

Speed /Old Final RPMs /New Final RPMs:

55 / 3600 / 3200
60 / 4000 / 3600
65 / 4200 / 4000
70 / 4600 / 4200
75 / 5000 / 4600
80 / 5200 / 4800

I am trying to remove the back tire of my pc800, is the 27mm bolt on the left side reverse threaded? I tried removing it but wanted to know before I made things worse. Thanks Rich

    Nope. As stated, standard righty thread. May I offer a suggestion? With two bolts removed, you can remove the rear tail light assembly, which will allow you to just roll the tire out the rear (assuming bike on center stand). Just a thought.

      What nobody bothered to mention is that the torque specs on the installation of that nut is very high. It's going to take a pretty high force to loosen. Check the owners manual. It's the only one I've ever seen with torque specs on that type

        I think there is a photo somewhere on the ipcrc database of a member using a 27 mm wrench; he is lying down parallel to the bike and uses his foot on the wrench to break the nut loose. I tried it (before I got my impact wrench - which is the

          Thanks everyone for your replies, and now that I know I m going the right way I'll manage to get this thing off. Normally I'd take it to a shop but the tire won't hold enough air to ride it there, so I figured it would be cheaper to just take

            If you can find the leak just plug it....I only tighten the axle nut with the factory wrench. That way I know I can remove it next time. I think the 80lbs is overkill...Don't lose the two rubber washers when you remove the light bar. Don't ov

              Just an extra 2 pennies....my driveway has a slight drop off on the edge. So I back the bike to the very edge, back it up slightly on a car wheel ramp resting on the driveway...then center stand it up. This leaves the rear wheel suspended ove

                  Outstanding, Ting. You are a great teacher. And film editor too. I already did the VT1100 conversion (or rather, had it done) but the wheel removal portion may come in very handy and is worth the price of admission by itself. Thanks for putti

                    I honestly don't understand the reluctance to remove the light bar. (Actually disconnect the right side wiring and place the still connected on the left side in the left side of the saddle bags.) It only adds about 4 minutes to a tire removal

                      Removing the lightbar is a no-brainer. Be careful not to lose the two rubber washers and do not over tighten the screws because they can turn in the plastic boss's. I have fixed the cracked boss with epoxy and on my present bike I gooped them

                    Hey Tim, The drive shaft is easy to replace because it leaves the universal joint in place. If you want to replace that rear engine seal, you'll have to drop the swing arm to get it done, and that is alot more work, including cleaning and

                    Unfortunately Doug, that is the last picture of the blue lights. I chatted with a Harley rider that had a single blue light on the back of his front fender that pointed at the chrome on his engine. The Stone Mountain judge fined him $1000.00

                      That is specifically stated as legal in IL, as long as it is a single blue dot. Can we say Kangaroo court. --- In ipcrc@yahoo
