Well I am down to the main shaft drive sprocket...
The Clymer Manual says to put a 'soft washer' between the main sprocket and the sprocket of the clutch basket.... then take the nut off...
Agghhhh.. is this the only way?
Really worried about damaging the main sprocket or clutch...
Trying to get the front sprocket off today but the nut was not in a hurry to come off. Tried a 2' bar on the end of the socket t-bar, then tried the air impact wrench - still no luck. Anyone gort a good way of persuading this nut to move???
Following on from my last topic, it seems the nut that holds on the front sprocket has disappeared. I have checked the Motobins and Wemoto websites but cannot find one.
Any idea where I can find one ???
Having snapped my belt drive this morning, luckily about 20m from my house!
I now need to replace the belt and whilst at it I thought that I would replace the rear tyre which has a temp repair plug in it.
My questions are;
Does a normal socket fit the rear wheel nut which according to the manual...
Can someone shed some light on the correct size for the hub nut on a CS please?
Have measured it with a vernier (55mm) but have heard its a 56mm?
Local bike shop wrecked the plastic adaptor that came with the biketrying to undo the nut!!
Anyone had trouble trying to remove the rear wheel nut on a cs?
Local bike shop tried using the plastic adaptor but wouldn't budge.
Is this common?
Going have to buy a 55mm socket and carry it around in case of a puncture!
Having been fleeced comprehensively by the Park Lane boys, I have lost the taste for getting my next tyre done at a BMW main agent.. so... can anyone recommend an online retailer where I can buy a suitable socket to remove the rear wheel on my CS?
My rear tyre needs changing soon and I noticed that although my 2002 Scarver toolkit includes a a hexagonal tool for undoing the nut the actual nut on the rear wheel is "star shaped" so I wondered if any of you are familiar with this problem and if so where can you purchase a tool.
