I could be wrong but I believe working or 'nut busting' force is usually MORE than the amount of actual torque that the tool can generate. Example, my dad's IR air impact wrench has a torque output of ~800 ft/lbs but the 'nut busting' force is rated at over 1200 ft/lbs.

So, if that's correct then the 375 rating on your wrench might really be less than advertised.

I Ride: Tricolor, had 10R, 6R track bike, just sold RC51, started on CBR F4i
F u rear wheel on my 1199. It took me 30min to get this bitch off. I first started w/a breaker bar, no joy. Then locked down the rear brake w/breaker bar, no joy.

So, I fire up the air compressor, hooked up my craftsman professional and hit it w/that, no joy for 20min. I had to ensure it was powerful enough, 500 ftlbs reverse per craftsman so i kept at it, only letting it impact for 3-4sec at a time so not break/crack anything.

Finally, 30 min later it came off. Not sure if god and hercules put this nut on but jesus, never had anything like that before.

Even confirmed before i started i had 320 nm whatever to torque it to as that is nuts what it needs to be at.

Anyways, if you have basic tools don't even bother, you'll either break them, your hand or f up your rim/nut.

An impact wrench would have made a world of difference. It would remove it in seconds and you won't even break a sweat.

it is an impact wrench, sorry if i mis-typed. but i don't have the cheapest one and its never had a problem w/a nut until this rear wheel nut. i could see it "impacting" by the socket name going back and forth quickly.

not sure if maybe something wasn't set right but the gun says in reverse the power is set to max, in forward it has 4 gradual power settings. air compressor over 120psi and the whatever the other setting is at 90psi. nothing more i know to increase power wise than what it says to set it at.

I have used the Speedy Moto version for my 848 and will purchase the same for the Pani. I also picked up a Dewalt Cordless Impact Wrench, 160 ft.-lb., 18.0V and used that with a 1/2 inch adapter.

Worked well with the 848 and I had no marring of the axle nut but also used blue painters tape around the socket as well.

The Dewalt moved the nut with zero effort.

Just removed the rear wheel from my pani for the first time. I read through these horror stories and was told to buy an impact wrench, so I did (Milwaukee M18 from Home Depot). I'd never used an impact wrench so didn't know what to expect. Had my bike on both the front and rear stands where it seemed quite stable and pulled out the wrench and was gonna see what a bitch this job was gonna be! Couldn't have been easier! I'm not even sure if I had to use the rear brake or not, but either way, the wrench did its job and made it a piece of cake. I guess it's all about having the right tools...

I also used the TPO rear nut tool which did the job flawlessly...

my speedymoto socket just arrived today. It fits on my '15 1299.

now to get an impact wrench - I'm not going to mess around with borrowing five people and a giant-ass cheater bar....

I had a hard time taking mine out too. But, it was just because I used an extension bar and seemed like the socket kept slipping off the nut. Took the extension out and it came right out with just a regular wrench and a short tube as breaker bar.
