Removing Rear Scooter Wheel

Discussion in 'Scooters' started by johnno, Oct 11, 2006.

  1. Hi all and thanking you in advance,

    What's involved with removing the rear wheel off a scooter ('98 Honda 100cc). My wife has a puncture and I'm thinking it would be a lot easier just to take the wheel in. Can anyone assist with straight foward instructions?

  2. Yep, I got a puncture about a year ago and I just tooke the scooter wheel off and took it in to the mechanic to get fixed.

    Not knowing your scooter it's hard to tell you without being there to see it.
    Though generally this is the procedure.
    Put the scooter on the centre stand.
    You might need to remove the exhaust to get the wheel out. Thats just a case of unbolting it.

    If the scooter has twin rear shocks, you might have to remove one of the shocks and the subframe.

    There might be a centre cover that you just pry off with a screw driver.
    There might be a spilt pin and cage nut. Remove those in order.
    Now, you need someone to apply the rear brake
    while you unscrew the centre hub nut.
    Once that is off, you should be able to slide the wheel out.
  3. Thankyou Braddo,

    It sounds to easy!!
