Yep you are the only one to have done the rear!! LOL Actually it is very straight forward just pay attention to the spacers and make sure you torque everything back to the right torques.

Very easy, only 3 obvious bolts, 2 tension bolts shoud be loosened to give room to remove the chain, then the 1 axle bolt with the safety pin and basically pull the aluminum axle out while holding the wheel some how and watch how the spacers are set in the hub. What are you trying to do anyway?

I have to take it off cause something is seriously fucked up in my rear wheel...

There is something in the ummm hub or wheel or whatever and is bouncing around back there. I say that cause only at slow speeds is there a clucking sound like something is in there banging around as the wheel is turning. Obviously as speed goes up cent. force keeps it in one spot and it doesnt bang around. So basically I need to take the wheel off and see wtf is going on...

so once you get the wheel off, and find the problem then what? LOL another post on how to put it on again and how to fix the problem? If you can't take a rear wheel off yourself, I'd suggest for your own good, take it to someone that does know and get them to do it. It may end up saving you alot of money. Have fun

there's a slot in the rear hub, maybe a pebble or something got in there some how and now it's bouncing around. Can't really get a grasp on what you're hearing. At speed centrifical force would hold something in place. pop the wheel off and shake it around a bit.

as much as Birdman knows I like to disagree with him at times this is not 1...take it to the dealer and find out what is happening...nothing to mess around with f'sho. :badteeth:

i will say if you don't have a torque wrench go get one, i stepped up and got one from sears that is very easy to set, just turn the dial to the desired fl lbs, vs sliding the handle up a scale. about $100.

Dude...Take it back to the shop.. I'd hate to hear that you scuffed up you nice new BST's taking the wheel off..or putting it back on. It isnt very hard to take off or put on. But if you arent careful you will mar the hell out of your wheel with the rear brake caliper.
