Backed bike out of garage this morning---ride to McDonalds, noticed kinda funny feeling in rear. Checked rear tire by kicking, seemed ok. came home checked tire pressure with gauge-ok, checked rear end play----a little free play----tightened rear axle nut....it had worked itself loose---socket/breaker bar seemed to cure problem.


First time for me in over 90,000 SilverWing miles. Going to watch on trip to James Bay Road in Quebec in a week or so.

Thoroughly grease it and torque to 110 Ft. Pounds, Manual says 102 Ft. Pounds, I find 110 better, A straight shovel handle makes good back up thru wheel, Watch out for the valve stem.

Happy motoring Lloyd 193.

Mr Grinsel, I've always carried a 1/2" drive 10" sliding T- handle 'socket breaker wrench' along with a ~10" aluminum pipe for extension/leverage and a 27mm socket for that rear axle nut. I also carry 1/2" drive 22mm and 17mm sockets to fit those appropriate nuts/bolts as well in my travel tool kit.

That emergency tool kit came in very handy on a recent trip to Iowa when my "V" light came on prematurely. I was able to disassemble the drive belt case and, even though everything appeared okay, change to my spare belt about an hour, under less than ideal circumstances in a motel parking lot the next morning. Motel donut & coffee in one hand, wrench in the other.

Best wishes on your Great White North ride. 

Tim

#1 parking brake, set up right, lock rear wheel for axle tightening in my world.

#2 I carry enough tools...to remove both wheels----today I used 1/2 drive 27mm socket and breaker bar from bench as it was handy----assembling my road tool kit would have taken longer.

Experience alerted me to funny feel from rear

V lite----just miles counter, on trip if you know how long/miles belt has been on---just re-set V lite----it really doesn't tell belt condition, just miles.
