Rear Tire

Postby egrave » Sun Dec 26, 2010 2:25 pm



I have a 1999 Goldwing and I want to change my rear tire. If I jack the bike up high enought can I take the rear wheel off with out taking anything else off.

No, you have an axle on the 1500 that most be pulled out!

Not sure if you can do that because you need to take the brake caliper off and one of the bolts that holds it also holds the shock. It's really easy to take off the left saddlebag (four bolts and a clip) so you can get to the brake caliper and associated bolts.

There is a way to take the rear wheel off without removing the bags or trunk. Take a look at the 4th post on this thread:

Sounds complicated but I've done it once in my garage just for the fun of it and now I know I could do it in 15-20 minutes if I had to. Printed the instructions out and take them with me on the road. Never know when the trick might come in handy if you have a break-down.

Saw that but, the question was, can the rear tire be changed on a 1500 without taking anything off

I had these instructions saved as a "to store for future use" document - not quite sure where it came from, the date on the file is almost three years old, and I'll put the disclaimer on it that I did not write it. Your mileage may vary:

Removing the rear wheel without disassembling the bike
