You really don't need a special tool to remove the rear tire...other than a good motorcycle jack. I have done it using a floor jack and jack stands, but it does require two people to get the bike on the stands. One to hold the bike steady and the other to position the stands and operate the jack.moreira72 said:Just ordered a new rear tire and am going to install myself. SHould come in this week. My question is do i need a special tool to remove the axle. and what is the correct procedure. I am upgrading to a Metzeler 200/70/15 MME 880

Drop me a PM with your mailing address if you want a copy of the Service Manual on CD. Since I screwed up on recommending a torque wrench on the axle nut...I might as well offer you the manual so you know what torque rating needs to be applied to it.
