so I'm reviving this god damn thread... Was going to get the wheel of myself, as usually when I'm getting a new set of tires I just take the bike to the shop, this time I thought I'd get this done myself. Even the shop had issues removing the rear wheel off in the past...

I tried the breaker bar with N in place and a buddy holding down the brake pedal, NADA. I resorted to my DeWalt impact wrench, NADA. I decided to pull up the shop manual and in there they call for putting the bike in gear to remove the nut, however as everyone else I'm not a fan of stressing the transmission... Are the people in Bologna nuts, or is it in fact safe to put the bike in gear?

I'm going to try a few other tricks that I've read on here, but I'd like to get this done myself a few times so I can easily replicate this at the track. Rant over.

Your are not stressing your transmission, it undergoes much more load than 173ft/lbs.

Worst case scenarios, your clutch will slip or you'd bust your rear chain, that's not going to happen unless you turn green when you get angry, you just don't have the strength.

Use my DeWalt Electric Impact wrench. Never struggled to get my 996, 1098, Multistrada and 1299, plus a bunch of friend's Monster rear wheel nut off.

Thanks from maslov

Me neither I wouldn't place stress on tranny.

I got mine off with a 569NM air rattle gun took awhile good 15sec before came loose with rear brake on as hard as could.

Doing up the nut had the rear brake on with a long breaker bar to the point the nut wouldn't move and the bike was rocking off the stand.

Also cover the nut in elec insulation tape to avoid marking the nut.

I can do it by myself, bike on kickstand, without power tools. Just need a socket, a breaker bar, and about a 4' length of pipe that will fit over the handle of the breaker bar. Socket on breaker bar, pipe over bar handle - about halfway down to maximize the length. Put the socket on the nut, then rotate the handle and pipe toward the front of the bike. I put one foot on the rear brake lever then apply upward force to the end of the pipe that's over the breaker bar handle. Just apply a constant pressure - no need to bounce it or anything. The nut will loosen. Once it breaks free the rest is easy. It's all about the leverage. I've removed the rear wheel 3 times so far this way.

I had the same issue. The dealer tried everything and even bought a new 3/4 impact and nothing. We thought that it had loc tite or that the threads had been fucked. I had to take the bike to a truck stop and use their 1" impact for about 5 seconds before it came off. The weird thing is that nothing was damaged. Everything was perfectly fine! We still can't come up with an explanation.

So I kept at it with the impact wrench for about 5-6 seconds at a time... after about 4 tries it finally gave way and came right off.

when you put the rear nut back on, make sure, make sure you grease it as stated on the manual. otherwise, you might end up having to saw the thing off next time around.
