Removing front & rear wheel

Post by tourman »

Do you need to remove the calipers when taking the front wheel off? Any problems putting it back on if you don't remove the calipers?

What type of wrench do you remove the rear wheel with? Regular lug wrench? I want to remove the wheel with the bike on the center stand.

Thank you

For the front, most will remove the RF caliper then unbolt the spindle, slide the spindle out, and remove the rear wheel. For the rear, to unbolt the 5 lug nuts, I use a 17mm deep socket on a 3" extension all attached to a 1/2" drive long flex-head ratchet.
