    Default Rear wheel removal CS

    Looked in the supplied tool kit for the 55mm socket. Its plastic!

    The recommended torque for tightening is 150 newtons!

    Where can I get a proper socket?

    They must have changed the socket... I checked the toolkit on my Scarver last night, as I needed to tighten one of the mirror nuts, as it was moving at higher speeds, giving my a lovely view of my new helmet Whilst I had it out, I had a look at my socket, and mine is most definitely metal...
    Actually, I was surprised at how good the toolkit seemed to be, lots of tools!

    The chocolate plastic socket will not undo the nut on the back wheel. The cd manual states use socket BMW 363681. Is it 55mm.
    Can you buy a 55mm socket for the job in 1/2 inch drive.
    Am I running with the best tyres I.E dunlop sportemax radial.
    Thanks in advance

    Just so I remember, the socket size for the rear wheel adaptor is 27mm and the nut size is 56mm (6 sided socket fits better than 12 sided).
    Still cannot undo it, the wheel spins around. Going to try and use impact driver from a dealer

    Hi Dave, maybe I am being daft but why don't you apply the rear brake when loosening the nut?

    Or, assuming you are using a centrestand, lower the back wheel to the ground until it is loosened? That's what I do to change a car wheel - loosen, jack up, undo, change, redo to tight, drop and retighten.

    Don't leave it in gear though. all sorts of funny stresses along the drivetrain.

    I cannot operate the rear brake while undoing the rear nut on the side stand, I need help, so as I know dealers with Air Guns I think that's the best way forwards. I assume it turns anti-clock to undo it.
    When I use my car wheel nut extending bar the wheel rides over anything chocked up to stop it moving. so I must be giving it some welley
    I'm not being sexist but my wife would not be able to operate the brake for me.
    Anyone out there living near Sittingbourne try using Cray engineering for these sort of jobs, Jim is a well respected independent Dealer.
    Failing everything else I will have to pay a dealer to fit a new tyre.

    Love the bike to bits so I can overlook everything that causes problems.

    I have found out that Watling Tyres in Lewesham S.E. London will remove the wheel and fit a new tyre for ?13, they have socket requied to remove it.
    So that's it off I go to London on Saturday morning and after the new tyre is fitted breakfast in the Ace Cafe.

    All now sorted, recommend Watling tyres at Lewisham, they used a Britool 55mm 12 sided socket. They needed an additional evtension bar to undo the nut. But we put it back loose??
