New beast

new problems, the previous owner or his hench men had neglected to lube the rear wheel axle so I had to resort to violence in the form of a copper sledge hammer to knock it out, and a 3/4 inch copper pipe as drift.
Furthermore the tensioner bolts were almost stuck, a couple of nervous moments until I got them out.
Greased them up and screwed them in and out as to clear out the threads and coated them with grease..
The wheel bearings feel ok, can my sledgehammer caresses have damaged them?
Just to be on the safe side i took out the front wheel as well, 'twas easier but some new grease and emory cloth makes life easier.
At lest it runs well, had heaps of fun on the gravel roads

Seems like the rear axle on mine is off every couple weeks. Tires just don't seem to last very long.

rattis:

Mount the wheel and check the "play" left/right and up/down. Beware the up/down can also relate to bad swingarm/PDS bearing. Will be easy to see which.
But the way you have hammered the wheel axl you should not be able to even hit the bearin. That is as long you have hit the axle.

Regards from Denmark

Thumb

It's back back in position, cleanded that shaft and lubed it with judiscious amounts of grease, even got on my new TKC 80, broke the bead on the old one using a plank and a piece of wood, some swearing and sweating.
The olde sidestand trick, nor jumping on the tyre, nor praying.
Hopefully it won't happen in the out back, I know who's going to make a bead breaker.

TKC80 came off using the side stand on a DR350 no problem:



Nail was the problem:



And it had ripped the tube to a hard to repair:



Luckily I had a spare with me.
