1299 Rear Wheel Nut

Hello All,

First tire change is upon me and the rear wheel nut won't budge.

Am I doing it right... it is counter-clockwise to loosen the nut, right ??

Any tricks to undo what the Ducati worker did in Bologno

Thx

Heat gun for a few minutes to the nut but first use a degreaser lube remover and spray in the gap between the nut and axle. Also leave the bike off the stand and have someone sit on it and hold the rear brake while you loosen the nut. Lefty loosy

Roll the bike backwards against a post or a corner. Have someone sit on it as Mike said. Breaker bar helps. Impact gun too.

Good luck!


I had to crack a nut once after killing 3 wrenches...

The torque the dog shit out of it from the Factory. We do at least 3 rear wheel changes in a race weekend and I know he doesn't use the Factory torque spec on the rear wheel, it is just ridiculous.

Invest in a good 1/2" impact wrench. It will be a life saver. Short of that, do what they said.

I have the bike on the rear stand and use a lashing stripe to fix the rear wheel. Open the nut with a 60 Euro electronic impact gun (400 Nm) and use the factory torque spec. Easy work, done in 2 minutes.

Jeeezez, where did you get a 400Nm electric impact gun for 60 bucks in Switzerland???? Best thing I found was Dewalt 300Nm for an astronomical price!

Found it in Germany. Was not sure if this cheap thing would work... But it does. Send the product details later.

My Torque wrench only goes up to 200nm, never had any probs at 200nm rather than the stated 230nm

Can you confirm if looking at the wheel side if it's left turn for lose or is it the other way around ? Back in the post it was mentioned but I'm still unsure.
Is it a 54mm socket?

55mm, counter clock wise (same as loosening a "normal" nut).
