Rear Wheel Removal

The single-sided swinging arm makes rear wheel removal a doddle on the T5 bikes. Despite this, there have been a fair number of inquiries on the T5 lists on the correct sequence. Especially from people who want to make sure the workshop or tyre warehouse grease-monkeys do it right.
I have broken down the procedure into a few easy steps, reassembly is simply the same in reverse.

Tools

You will need:
photo of tools needed ideally you'd also have:



Loosen rear wheel nut

Remove exhaust

photo-exhaust joint springs photo-exhaust hanger bolt

Set bike on stand

photo-rear-end on stand Easy one, this.

(remove hugger)

You may be able to get away without removing the hugger - if you have one fitted
Don't forget it'll be a tighter fit if you replace the wheel with a new tyre on it.
