Introduction

Road Star - Wheel removal

There are many reasons to remove one or both of the wheels on your Road Star: mounting new tires, changing the drive belt, or tending to your wheel bearings -- to name a few. Even if you have a professional mechanic doing wheel/tire work for you, you can save substantial money and feel some 'did it myself' pride by handing over your wheels instead of your whole bike.

It's a fairly simple and quick procedure, and doesn't take many tools. This article walks you through the steps, one by one.

When all the little details are described, this can sound like a much bigger job than it is. If you can replace the sparkplug in a lawnmower, and change the oil in your bike, you can probably take your wheels off and put them back on without breaking a sweat.

The next page gives you a quick overview, in case you just need a reminder or two. The pages following that give more detailed instructions.
