HOW TO: Remove wheels.
« on: November 03, 2013, 03:20:48 PM »
Time for a tire change.  So I decided to crack open the service manual and remove the wheels myself.

For the rear, very quick.

1. Remove the silencer.  Two bolts.



2. Remove the rear wheel.  5 bolts. Remove wheel.



For the front, a bit more involved. 
1. Support the bike just under the center exhaust.  Most of the weight of the bike is supported by the center stand.

I removed the front fender - 6 bolts.  Just for ease of access.



2. Remove the brake calipers.  Be sure to support them so they don't pull on the brake lines.  I hooked them to the fairing, under the headlamps. 



3. Slacken the fork pinch bolts.  Using a 19mm hex nut, remove the spindle.  Take note of two different spacers in the wheel.





4. Wheel removed.  For reassembly, there are various torque settings for all the bolts.  I'll refer you to the service manual.

Awesome write up
If i may add, you only need to remove the front painted portion of the front fender.
This is an excellent maintenance design by the fine folk at triumph.

I thought that as well about the fender.  It was only two more bolts, so I thought it might be a bit easier.

Great!!! That information will be welcomed. Because my experience in the work-shop changing the tires is: no care at all about tightening of the bolts/nuts, the brakes calipers hanging from its own pipes.... Most probably I will dismount the wheels for my next tire change... :460:

Good write up but I might add that you don't need to remove the silencer.  Loosen it up and you can slide the wheel by
