On the rear wheel on a 2001 R6
Taking the wheel off, is the 32mm nut standard thread or the opposite?
Righty tighty, lefty loosey? :bash

Mine is soooo tight, it doesn't turn either way.

Check the torque settings ?

Hi, have you checked what the torque settings should be for the rear nut ? It should be 150 Nm (15 m-kg)

I almost picked the bike up to make the torque wrench click. I've done some jetting on my bike and would strongly advise you to be very careful with the screws for the airbox and float bucket on the carbs. They strip for no reason. I replaced all these with Allen head bolts.

Here is the first wheel. This is after the first application of Mother polish! Gong to paint the spokes and the center of the lip blue. Rims go in to be painted next week.:cool:

I have found if you use a #3 phillips the bolts won't strip,of course I found this out after stripping a few:bash
