PostSubject: Rear Wheel Removal   Rear Wheel Removal I_icon_minitimeTue Sep 21, 2010 4:12 am

Hi.

I am intersested in finding out how to remove the rear wheel but cannot find any information relating to this on the forum.

Could someone please direct me to a tutorial, if there is one, or give some guidance on how to remove the rear wheel.

Some maxi scoots are easier than others i.e. I think I am right in saying that the exhaust on a Burger 400 has to be removed prior to removing rear wheel.

Thanks.

The pictures tell it all----but US and I assume EU newer models have OX sensor on muffler to remove-----if shop manual is followed right side panel have to come off, too to get at connector.

Think they guy that approved this design should have to pull rear wheels out several times in one night, dark, in the rain.....and maybe a better design could be found at the same price point. Also the "packing" at the exhaust pipe muffler joint is sensitive. I try to carry a spare.

Mitch, yes the Burger 400 exhaust needs to be removed as does the Lambda sensor in the K4 and higher.

The studs attaching the 'xaust can easily shear! I filed them away, drilled the remaining stud out and replaced with HTS nuts and bolts and coated with graphite grease.

Just a minor technicality, but I happened to notice in the Leroy Beal instructions that he said to loosen the rear axel nut with the torque wrench. That is really a "no-no" and may serve to damage the wrench or at least make it read "off". At least that's what we were taught while performing jet engine maintenance in the service. I believe a standard ratchet and socket would be more appropriate in this situation.

We were taught the same thing in the Brit Services, (Helo maintenance), regards torque wrenches.

Don't get me started on this Waspie, don.... tooo late... @#$%!

Some time ago I loaned my torque wrench to a workmate(ex RAAF erk) based on his high profile service knowledge. Apparently he used it to undo, unsuccessfully ,a rusted up pneumatic/hydraulic fitting on a railway ballast dumper. The 3 foot pipe he used as a handle extender was of no help at all either, as it only managed to smash the pawl in the wrench.

To quote Bart Simpson "I didn't do it" ,"

it was faulty before I started using it"

I have now reassembled it and moved the good pawl to the undo position and use it for stripping down engines etc as it has remarkable leverage with the ratchet as well. Its all its good for!

I usually do not lend out tools. this was an exception due to the apparent skills of the workmate.

There was a sticker for tool-boxes which said (more or less),

You can borrow my shirt,
You can borrow my wife,
But don't ask to borrow my Snap-On tools.

I always thought the same as you guys, i.e. never use a torque wrench to undo stuff at which point my erstwhile colleague from the Royal Navy pointed out that TW's have a switch on them allowing them to be used either clock wise or anti..... he said wot rot if they didn't want you to undo stuff why make them so???

I got a rather shifty look for pointing out that some - 'some' nuts & bolts had a reverse thread...............

The high quality torque wrenches don't have a reverse switch. My 1/2" drive Snap-On will only tighten. The breaker bar is for loosening.

So - when I was working on aircraft, I saw another guy get a nice talking to about throwing a Snap-On torque wrench out of calibration by using it to try to loosen several hard to move bolts. After measurement, it was more than 20 lbs off on the weak side so it would indicate 100ftlbs but only be putting out 80ftlbs. Yikes.

Moral of the story - use the right tool for the right stuff.

Leroy Beal died at least 10 years ago, and if I remember correctly his family removed all his web content some months later. I also recall there being some discussion about his useful web tips and mods being no longer available.

Then a member on here past or present posted he'd downloaded all Leroy Beal's web pages on the Silver Wing and provided a link for others to download this content. Since then I haven't heard his name mentioned until now.

I might have this on my old iPad, or it's just as likely I deleted it soon after I sold my Silver Wing in late 2018. I can't check because I haven't used the iPad for years, and when I charged it up recently it wanted some long forgotten iCloud info to log in.

I'm sure Leroy Beale name will jog someone’s memory, and maybe they've downloaded his Silver Wing hints and tips.

Try searching 'rear wheel pictorial' or something similar.
I had a quick look and was led to this Youtube clip:

I also dial-in 'honda silverwing 600 rear wheel removal' to Youtube:

Thanks for all the help' I was able to remove the rear wheel and tomorrow or Friday
I will take it to the shop and have rear tire mounted and balanced with new valve stem.
The tires looked OK but the cycle sat for 7 years so decided to replace with the City Grips
Will also be replacing the front one

That's a bit dim.
How are you supposed to torque up something with a wrong-hand thread?

Don't believe everything you hear.

Absolutely correct although I think all of my Teng click-type torque wrenches ratchet in both directions but only do the torque click in the clockwise direction.
