I just picked up a DeWalt 292 electric impact wrench during the fathers day sale. its rated at 345ft/lb so this should be enough to remove the nut. I will find out soon as my steel socket comes in.

Which model did you use?


If the dewalt can't hack it, i'm going to try this next: Link

let's us know how the Dewalt works out, For $150 on Amazon, that's less than 2 tire changes.

I have the DeWalt DW290 1/2" electric impact wrench. Have used it to change wheels on the 1199, clutch basket nuts on all sorts of bikes, countershaft sprockets, etc. Anything where you need some serious grunt to get a nut moving in the right direction. Makes taking the wheel off/on the 1199 a breeze.

Make sure you use sockets rated for impact wrenches. Some sockets out there will break from the hammering. Steel only. I have a set of hardened steel sockets I bought (individually) from McMaster-Carr when ever I needed one for a particular application like flywheels/clutchbaskets/etc.
Thanks from Phl and bearacer

Got me a manual tire changer and it has paid for itself in less than a year. Only downside is that everyone in the area is now my buddy and comes to my house to have their rubber changed.

I finally got the drive side off... First had 1 Person on the bike with foot on the brake, me and another guy leaning on the rear tire and a guy pulling up with a breaker bar.. Broke the socket... Went and bought a $70 electric impact gun, borrowed a speedymoto steel socket, took the rear off the rear stand with it held up with my chock stand, in neutral, impact took it right off...

Yea, you have to put a block of wood in the wheel like a propeller, and use a 4' cheater bar to get it loose from the factory. It's easier to manage with a longer bar and less force to get the torque.

Just to follow up: I just took the wheel nuts off both my panni and monster today to fit some new mods. The dewalt electric torque wrench popped them both off with ease. It's worth the $150.
