Rear Wheel Nut HELP

Nothing every goes right. After getting all they things I needed to change my own flat tire, when it comes time to remove the wheel, I cant get the damn nut to budge. Impact wrench, 2 foot break bar. Practically standing on it with my 190lb mass. NOTHING. In fact it bent the damn wheel spin stopper thing on my t-rex stand. I PB Blasted it and let it sit for 30 min nothing. WTF

i know your pain.

torch / breaker bar / impact wrench didn't work one time.

i had to crack the nut.

won't happen again.


try this:


get a friend (or 2) to help you.
have bike off rear stand.rear wheel on 2x4. tie it down on several spokes.

have a friend sit on the bike and push the rear brake. (1st gear not recommended and not required in this procedure) have the other friend making sure the socket is flush on the nut.

try again with longer breaker bar and have an extra wrench in place.

just in case call dealer in advance if they have a new nut in stock.

You just need more force, 2 ft breaker bar prob wont do it, stick a pipe on that thing to get more leverage

Thanks for the comments. I let the pb blaster sit over night. Gonna head to home depot for a 5ft or more pipe and torch it for one last try before heading to the dealer

dealer won't help, as said in my old thread, the tech there bent and broke his $400 lifetime warranty snap-on wrench.

get the 5 ft. 2x4 and have the bike strapped down on it .

you can also roll the rear wheel against a wall, but make sure someone is sitting on it and hitting the rear brake.


best of luck!

Not sure where you are suggesting the 2x4 goes?

Thanks. I assume leverage from the weight of the bike and the rear brake will keep it from rotating up towards the swing arm
