Wanderer said:I put the bike in reverse to lock the rear wheel. You can also use a torque wrench to remove bolts. Since 80 lb-ft is the spec, it shouldn't take more than 100 - 110 lb-ft to get them off.
My suspicion is what really freezes the lugs on, is heat from the rear brake which gets transmitted through the studs to wheel, coupled with water which accelerates the corrosion process. This is why I really think anti-sieze on the studs is a good idea.Pigeon Roost said:Rain, road salts, galvonic reaction between the three different metals,and time really freeze the lugs in there with that standard method.
