Info to do my own tire change

Does anyone know the official size of the socket required to change the rear tire? I have a suitable torque wrench and a tire changer. Is the socket size 48mm? Also, I got a torque setting for the axle nut... I want to confirm here is 250 newton/meters is correct?

rear socket is a 55mm and you are correct on torque

Do yourself a favor and buy a Stainless Socket (55mm), as the aluminum ones are prone to stripping - TPO Parts has them with the torque setting laser etched on the side of it (230mn) so you won't forget -- but any stainless socket would be good enough....and if you don't know about No-Mar tire machines, check them out as well, before you buy anything

Ooops....looks like TPO Parts is Out of Business.....but i noticed plenty of stainless sockets being offered so you should be ok finding one

in any case, i have always stayed below the 220Nm and went 200max, after having to split one axle nut once. and grease is your friend.


cheers,

I would recommend the Ducati specific socket not sure who makes them I have had mine so long. I also picked up a 24" breaker bar put the bike in 2nd gear and my feet under the tire pulling toward me to get the nut off.

Koken 4405M-55DU

They also do Koken 4405M-36DU for the 899/959 rear nut.


these are better and cheaper than snap-on
