Place the motorcycle on its center stand. If you are not equipped with one, put it on stable auxilliary stand.
- socket wrench
- T30 Torx bit
- T45 Torx bit
- 22mm hex drive
- Torque wrench
(Optional) Before taking the rear brake caliper out, unclip the ABS wire from the brake line to prevent it from accidental damage.
Using a Torx T45 bit, loosen up the two torx bolts that hold the brake caliper to the frame.
Once the torx bolts are loose enough, you can just thumb-screw it out.
Carefully take out the brake caliper and set it out of the way. Note of the ABS wire. Unclip the wires further if needed.
Using a Torx T50, loosen up the lug bolts that hold the wheel to the hub. Loosen it in a star-pattern.
On my bike, I have a Remus Performance exhaust and there is a lot of room in between the tires that I did not have to loosen up the exhaust out of the way. Bonus!
Roll out the rear wheel.
Reinstall the rear wheel (with the new tires) and
- torque the lug bolts to 50nM in a star-pattern
- then, tighten further to 60nM to finish (still in a star-pattern)
Reinstall the rear brake caliper and torque to 30nM
Reclip back the ABS wire.

NOTES ON TIRE INSTALL
Brought both wheels and new set of tires (purchased from CanadasMotorcycle.com) to GWCycle and was still still charged $66/wheel to have the new tires installed.
- If the tires were purchased from them, the installation could have been $33/wheel if the wheels were brought to them or $66/wheel if the wheels were still on the bike.
- If the tires are purchased from elsewhere, the installation will be $66/wheel if the wheels were brought to them or a whopping $132/wheel if the wheels were still on the bike! This is completely INSANE!
