rear wheel nut removal

hi
can anyone please give me some info about removing the rear wheel nut- the Panigale is the first Ducati i have owned does the rear wheel nut undo clockwise or anti clockwise? i was trying to remove it tonight in a clockwise direction but it won't budge i was doing it in this direction as my mv used to undo in this direction any help would be appreciated

I had to pull mine last week for a flat. Lefty loosy, fyi, loosen the nut (they always come overtorqued big time from the factory) with the bike IN NEUTRAL, you don't want to use the gearbox to hold the wheel in place. With the bike on the side stand, stuff a 2x4 piece of wood in back of the tire, long cheater bar and foot on the rear brake, break the nut loose. One person can do this (I have on all my ducs). IF you have an air impact wrench you can also loosen that way and much less effort entails.

I highly recommend getting one of the specialized rear wheel sockets like speedy moto sells. HIgh quality and fit flat against the wheel.

Yes- The rear nut is torqued on to 230NM. Very tight.

I use a Makita impact wrench to loosen - but never to tighten.

Looks like the Alloy socket - Don't waste your money. I've had a couple of these and finally found a steel version which I've had for two years now. plus it has the torque setting engraved.. in case you forget

That one won't hold up I don't think.

Here's the speedymoto, I've used one on all my ducs and my mv as well

I've only used my waste of money, alloy socket in a business environment for four years. I'm sure it'd never work for the ten or twenty times the average home user would need it. Sheesh.

The alloy tool never tears up the plating on the nuts like a steel tool might.

The nuts are very tight. You will need 1/2" drive tools and a long breaker bar to loosen them. Both side are normal as far as tightening or loosening. Clockwise to tighten, counter-clockwise to loosen.

Some tips.

Loosening. Put bike on the rear stand, use a tie down strap to secure the rear wheel to the stand. Have a friend, wife, etc... press hard on the rear break while you loosen the bolt. Don't use a block of wood to leverage the wheel against the swingarm! Also make sure that the gearbox is in neutral.

Installing. Once off, clean the threads on the nut and the shaft. Apply a small amount of grease on the threads and the back side of the nut before putting the nut back on. As when lossening make sure the gearbox is in neutral and have someone apply the rear brake.

When tightenting, torque to 162 ft/lbs - 220-230nm.

When aligning the holes for the safety clip always tighten to align the holes. NEVER loosen to align the holes. There are 4 holes and chances are one will line up once you hit the right torque setting anyways. I've had mine off a few times and each time one of the holes lined up. Also, after installing the clips make sure that the pin sticks through the hole and not just in to it.

Take the bike for a short ride and recheck the torque.

Also, when/if you take off the rear wheel make sure the locating pins go into the small round holes in the back of the wheel and not the elongated slots.

Finally, invest in the proper 55 mm socket. You can get it from Ducati. My dealer had them in stock. They are expensive.

Tip: If you are installing anodized nuts to replace the factory nuts wrap one layer of masking or painters tape around the nut then trim the excess from the sides. This will prevent damaging the finish when tightening the nut.

Bought an alloy socket from shift-tech, it was ˝drive and stripped it on the first try. Get a 3/4 one and steel if possible
