86 1200I: Stuck rear axle nut
(01-23-2014, 08:17 AM)admin Wrote: Sounds like you got it sorted out just fine thanks to neoracer. Next time, if you decide to turn the left side of the axle, start out by loosening/removing the large nut on the right side of the axle, then loosen the pinch bolt at the bottom rear of the left side of the swing arm and then you'll be able to spin the flat sides of the axle quite easily.

I don't think on my next tire change I'll be trying to turn the left side of the axle. Smile This is the second rear tire change for me and I didn't remember everything about the first change. (Obviously)

This is a great forum, thanks.

I appreciate it. BTW: The '84 Aspencade you gave me tips on about the carb is running like a lightning bolt. My friend bought it for $650. (I found it on Craigslist) The young owner didn't want to mess with it anymore, "It wouldn't run". I pulled the carbs, took them apart and cleaned them, put them back on, and it runs fantastic.

I've learned I've got work to do on my '86 Interstate, it is fast, but nothing like the '84 Aspy now.
