Removing 1299 rear axle nut

Experienced DIY and looking for advice on removing the rear axle nut for the first time. Iím expecting itís cranked from the factory.

My Bosch cordless impact does nothing.

Tried a long wrench but you canít hold the rear brake hard enough. Do you dare put it in gear and use that plus brake?

Or do I go buy an air impact wrench?

Thx

Dude, I also bought a Bosch impact cordless, I thinks it's 250nm.... Does nothing forever. Even when I torque it myself that impact can not get it loose. Last time I went out and rented an electric impact with a 500nm range, think it was plug in, not cordless. Loosened it in 3 clicks, not even a second of vibrating.

So, I guess in short, air would be great but it can be a higher rated electric one.

Thanks. I have a good compressor. Harbor freight has air that can do 500ftlbs for $45.

But i still need to torque it correctly without turning the wheel...

Have someone hold the rear brake down why you torque the nut.

I do it myself by using a long extension (like 4ft) and sitting reverse cowgirl on the bike and pressing the rear brake with my left foot. Iím also 230lb 6í2Ē so that helps

First mark the nut on the hub (and hub on spindle) so you can retighten to the same torque. I used a 3/4 drive with powerbar and slid a bit of heavy hydraulic tube over that. Then I put the bike against the wall in gear, got a friend to sit on it holding both brakes and leaned into it. It succumbed!

1299 rear wheel

I used an air impact to remove the nut the 1st time it seemed overtorqued, and torque per the service manual, it states to put the bike in 1st gear also

Removing the rear wheel
Note The procedure is described for one version but applies to both of them (except where specified).
Place the motorcycle on the rear service stand and engage the 1st gear. Remove the circlip (1). Using a suitable socket, loosen the wheel nut (2). Loosen nut (2) completely.
Remove washer (3) and spacer (4).

Refitting the rear wheel
Lubricate the wheel shaft threaded end with recommended grease. Fit wheel on the shaft, matching wheel seats (5) and shafts (6).
Install spacer (4), with the tapered surface facing the wheel, and washer (3).
Apply the recommended grease to nut (2). Screw nut (2) by hand. Tighten the nut (2) to a torque of 230 Nm Ī 5%, checking that the hole on the nut is aligned with one of those on the wheel shaft. Fit retainer (1) on the nut, with the folded part facing the wheel. Insert the retainer (1) folded part in hole of nut (2) and in the wheel shaft nut. Then push retainer (1) in nut (2) groove.
Remove the rear service stand.

I Ride: 1299s 2016 with Evo update and 1199s 2012 track bike, Carrilo rods, RB evo, SSTK exhaust
just be careful with put it in 1st gear and then using a Impact wrench.

this can transfer the vibrations into the gearbox output shaft, and speaking from Experience with a very tight nut on a 996, my output shaft bearing gave up shortly afterwards.

my tip is to get the bike strapped down on a trailer etc and then retry the Long 3/4 extension, this should do it, if not successful the air or Elec impact gun, but the bike not in gear.
i only use 180Nm as a tightening torque as advised by me dealer.
