O7 R1200s Wheel removal info needed

Ok then,

Only 3k on the M1s and I need new gummies. Bought the Pilot Roads, hoping for a bit more mileage on them.......but thats a well exhausted topic on Pelican.

So, from my brother 1200s owners, I would appreciate some info if you have it on torque specs:

Rear wheel to hub torque?___________________________


Rear brake caliper mounting bolts torque?_______________


Front axle pinch bolt torque?_________________________


Front axle torque?_________________________________


Front brake caliper mounting bolts torque?_______________


Is any of this info online somewhere?


Thanks in advance!!!


Robert

Huh?

Did you not get a Riders Manual?

Pages 80-81 Front Wheel:
Quick release axle 37 lb/ft
Clamping screw for quick release 14 lb/ft
Brake caliper to slider tube 22 lb/ft

Rear wheel pg 82
44 lb / ft torque diagonally


Why did you remove the rear caliper?

CK,

doHHHHHH!, RTFM right! Sorry man, I just assumed it wouldnt be in there, I need to crack that thing open

I was assuming, like on my 02 R1100s, that the rear caliper had to be removed to remove the wheel. Im guessing by your answer that is not the case on the new S......woohoo, one less bolt to strip.

BTW Dee Jones told me he made a tool from bolts and nuts to remove the quick release axle. I have spent two days at Loews going back and forth with a 3/4", 5/8", 9/16", and 1/2" combo, and none are a tight fit. The 9/16" seems to be the best but it is still kinda loose.

Plus Loews didnt have any large size Metric to do the trick.....did you buy the tool from BMW, Im scared to aske how much it costs.

Thanks for your help!

Robert

Note that the clamping screw for quick release is OFTEN overtightened at the shop and by many do it youselfers..........get a inch pound torque wrench and torque it to 168 inch pounds. No more.......no less.

Like CK said...........read your Riders Manual totally and carefully. Its got a lot in there. Just buy the allen end socket you need for the front axle.........you will be using it a lots.

Craftsman 13/16" spark plug socket with the hex head and 2 3/4" extension bar pushed through backwards. The cheapest, best tool you'll find.

Thanks guys.

Hey DR......u going to the RA ralley ? Dee asked me to go, but I dont know, I cant hang with you mountain goat types, Dee smokes me when we ride and he is using only one eye, and he has nothing but compliments about your ability as well.


CK, thanks man.......you could not have made it easier for me, I wish I would have asked my question sooner.


But u two have me a little confused on the front axle torque. CK you say 37lbs/ft, Dr. you say 168inch pounds.

Are these the same, my torque wrench handles newtons and lbs/ft but not inches?

Thanks again,

Robert

Same thing. 14 ft/lbs x 12 = 168 in/lbs

I recommend doing as much with inch-lb torque wrenches as possible. Within their relevant range they are a little more precise. A Sears 25-250 inch-lb torque wrench is covering the range of a 2 - 20 ft-lb torque wrench.

And now, I must return to my Harley project. Tonight I'm attaching a cowl to it with bailing wire.

CK, I value your opinion a lot. What is your take on the relative worth and use of the new Ducati 1098 in the standard form? I am obviously a BMW person but at times will venture into the other world of Italy. My local dealer, who is also a good friend, wants me to try a 1098 if only for a little while. Would you, at our collective age? I have owned Ducati, Laverda, Aprilla, and MV and loved them all............its the chain, forks, and increased maintaince that I have no interest in........your thoughts please.

No offense Curve, but last I checked, this thread was a request for torque specs, not whether you should buy a ducati or not.......but im sure your S wouldnt mind an italian S right next to it

Hey Dr. Curve. I really have not studied the Ducati much at all and have never seen one in person. So I can't offer much of an opinion. The pictures look sweet however. The only Ducati I ever had was a 750 Monster for about a year or two.

CK,

Picked the socket ( at Sears ) you posted here, and man, its a PERFECT fit....your a genius, thanks for the tip. Now I can return all the odds and ends bolts I bought at loews to make a tool.

Now I have a dumb question. How did you get the little ruber insert out of the socket so you could put your 1/2' drive extension in it? Im guessing you have a quick answer, but I am stumped.


Thanks,


Robert
