    All you need to remove a wheel is a couple of allen wrenches, 3/8" ratchet with 6" extension and a spark plug socket.

    I feel your pain there youngscooter, but the wheel install is so easy they put the tools in your factory tool kit to do it on the side of the road. You'll need a rock under the muffler... been there.... but a rear stand is a nice thing to have around the garage.

    IMO, if your even slightly handy, it's worth the experience to do it yourself.

    Turns out he didnt use 100ft lb. He said thats way too much for any bike and that he just used those numbers as an example.

    He agreed to my proposition listed earlier (i buy new wheel, he installs for free) but he said hes only doing it because he knows i am a solid customer, and any other shop would tell me to go to hell.

    I ordered the new wheel

    Sounds fishy to me, but whatever. It should work out for you now. You still have a good relationship with him and he should pay better attention from here on out

    Do you know where they are sourcing the bearings? If they are using SKF I hope they are going to a local bearing supply company or legitimate supplier.

    The only reason I ask is because there are significant instances of counterfeit bearings on the market on sites like ebay and amazon. I've also seen people mistakenly buy bearings with a C3 clearance not realizing what that means too.

    Thanks for calling that to my attention, I do not know where he orders stuff but usually when they ordered tires and clutches they had a bookcase of catalogues behind the counter they bust out and run through.

    I had to Google what "catalogs" are.... Turns out they made them from trees and ink in the far far past.
