Back Wheel
« on: June 20, 2013, 08:02:17 PM »
Hi Guys,
Just wanted some information on removing the back wheel. In a few weeks I'm off touring abroad so am trying to cover worst case scenario's i.e. punctures!!
There is no information in the Handbook. The front wheel looks straight forward enough but not sure about the back, is it just a case of removing the 5, 15mm nuts? Also what is the torque settings on them?

Thanks

I cannot help you with regards to the rear wheel.

Personally I take an aerosol of slime. Had I had a puncture in Scotland on some of the smaller roads, I would have just 'slimed' the tyre antil I could find a garage that could change the tyre. I don't believe in plugging as a permanent solution to a tyre so I would change it at the earliest opportunity.

Add a mobile phone and Breakdown cover too !
( Not much use where there's no signal, but neither is a flat tyre ! )

Here's a question. Are you going to gum up your tyre with slime when you have electronic sensors for tyre pressure?
Don't grow up, it's a trap...

Good one. See I don't have an SE so I can use Slime to sort it out.

Hi Robin

Why dont you believe in plugging tyres  :087: Done correctly it is a acceptable permanent repair that will last the life of the tyre. In the past I've even ran with the offending objet still in just to get me home and had the tyre repaired. I never leave home with out a modern up to date puncture kit which are of the plug type and a miniature compressor.
Within the tyre fitting industry of which I deal with on a daily basis for my sins as an automotive manager / still active technician. This is industry practice.
With the cost of tyres I for one will get every inch of ware out of my tyres  :087: Keeping within the guidelines set by VOSA and other governing bodies.
But never attempt a repair in the side wall :005: If this gets damaged the tyre is scrap  :005: :005:

I have never plugged a tyre and I do have a plug kit but.........

Not many plugged tyres that I know of, has held the air properly. also with only two wheels, I am more cautious.

Got to say - plugs have got me out of the poo in the past. I'll always carry a kit with me now. One thing i do like with the Trophy is the 90 degree tyre valves. Easy to get cartridges and air lines on.
