PostSubject: Rear wheel removal   Thu Sep 29, 2016 5:50 pm

Hi all, long time no post. Just about recovered from a total hip replacement and time to get scootering again!

Now I need a new rear tyre and feel good enough to remove the wheel myself, but cannot seem to find any details of 'how to' either on here or on YouTube.

Could anyone point me in the right direction?

Many thanks guys.

Riggers.

Hi

I came across this video on YouTube by Stefano Bonacasa titled SWCI - Smontaggio ruota posteriore Silver Wing.
Gives a full video on taking off the rear wheel. I think it might be the 400 but its exactly the same as the 600. Enjoy

Thanks Mr Blobby that's great thanks.

Thanks to all.

Wow, Reg, that's a "How to..." from the late Leroy Beal. Thanks for locating that. Where/how did you find it? 

Now that Leroy Beal's site has been taken down maybe this "How to..." can be archived here for future reference.

I used the video from Stefano. Now that I see the written instructions, they are great! I would pay attention on the way you take off the muffler. Specifically the hanger bracket. When I went to put it back on, it didn't go the way I thought it should go.

Love this forum!

That muffler hanger bracket got me too. I forgot if the bracket was behind or in front of the mount. The write up picture looks to be infront. So I looked at enlargements af my SW from august when I got it. The bracket goes behind the mount. Next to the shock spring.

Well thanks to the forum and all you guys the wheel's been off, new tyre fitted, and wheel back on. And all at a fraction of the cost of having a dealer do the job (although the dealer did fit the tyre - I'm not THAT good!)

Cheers all - I owe you a beer!

Since I'm the nearest to the 2017 European City of Culture as far as I'm aware, I'll take one on behalf of the team!   drunken

Nice to hear you got your rear wheel off and on again and new tyre sorted. I was happy enough to let the local Suzuki dealer fit a set of ContiMoves recently.  I had Bridgestone Hoops on , the rear tyre had blistered, and I fancied a change from Bridgestone. The cost of buying and fitting was reasonable and they fitted the new angled valves I supplied and greased both axles too.

I'd have got the rear wheel off OK, but I'd have needed to buy some type of stand to raise the front wheel high enough for removal.

Workshop guy even told me the parking brake pads were worn and needed replacing, so that was good too.

When paying for the Silver Wing's MOT last week I spotted bottles of Puncturesafe for sale for £20 and bought some. I had sealant in the Bridgestone's so I'll eventually get round to installing it.

One beer on its way to York!

The job was remarkably easy if a bit lengthy as the swing(ing) arm has to be removed together with both brake calipers, silencer, lambda wire, and associated hoses and cables etc. If the video and write up are followed though the job's a walk in the park. Before the Silverwing I had a 650 Burgman and found the job a lot more difficult, mainly due to the awkwardness of everything especially the refitting of the brake caliper.

I did my own S/W front tyre a few weeks ago and found that even easier than the rear. No need to remove the brake caliper and the bike can be jacked up without harm under the fairing enough to winkle out the wheel from under the mudguard. However I removed the mudguard altogether to clean up the metal bracket which it hangs on.

All ready now for the rain and snow.......

And thanks to this I realise I've refitted my exhaust on the wrong side of the bracket... but it seems happy there and has been for the last few months.
A job for another day perhaps?
