Thread: Special tool for 1100RT Rear tire change?

  1. #1

    Question Special tool for 1100RT Rear tire change?

    Does anyone know if it requires a special tool to change the rear tire on the 1100RT. I have been told that it can damage the wheel if this is not done?

    Are you referring to removing the rear wheel from the FD or removing/installing the tire on the wheel?

    No special tools, unless you consider a big-ass wrench and a 16mm (17mm?) socket "special." The bolts need to be torqued to 75 ft-lb when you put it back on. I go 50, then 75 in a crisscross pattern.

    actually, it sounds like the only "special tool" you need might be this: http://www.amazon.com/Clymer-R1200c-...9427522&sr=8-4

    You will need an adapter if you want to balance the tire\wheel. I got mine from Dennis Kirk http://www.denniskirk.com/jsp/tpl/pr...p282315&mmyId=
