    I have tried searching and found a few comments on removing the rear wheel, but didn't find a write-up (I did find lots of other write-ups though).

    Did I miss it?

    Any suggestions or comments?

    I need to help the daughter and her husband pull the wheels off their new 2002 VStar 1100 Classic as they are getting new tires next week (Pirelli MT 66s)

    A different site..but it might help...

    Who is mounting the tire? I have a place that'll mount, remove and reinstall the wheel for like $40. For that price it's not bad.....

    quicgmicg, Thanks for the link I found lots of good info over there including a full Yamaha Service Manual for the 1100.

    The bike looks like they parked it in the wrong part of town -- it is up on blocks with both front and rear tires off (as well as the back fender and seats). The removal of the wheels was actually pretty easy. Removing the disc from the rear wheel was a real pain -- had to heat some of the bolts and I will have to clean the threads a little bit on one of the bolts.

    There is a lot of good info there.

    ...BTW...what part of North Idaho are you from?

    Mick,

    Are you familiar with the Coeur d'Alene area? I actually work in Hayden (right at the airport) and live near Twin Lakes (north of Rathdrum). Dilligaff (my brother) lives in Spirit Lake. We grew up in the Silver Valley (went to high school in Kellogg) and know pretty much all of north Idaho and Western Montana. (We have a lake place outside of Kalispell and my son goes to school at the U of MT in Missoula).

    I spent most of my life in Spokane and know the area very well. I was a company rep for many years and traveled all of Idaho and Western Montana. I had relatives in Burke and we did a lot of hunting and fishing in the area. I've got friends in Kalispell, Polson, Ronan....

    It's good to see somebody from "home"! Great riding up there...

    Mick,

    Most people wouldn't admit that they had relatives in Burke!!

    Dilligaff recently posted some pictures of our ride to Star Days via Ashley Lake (west of Kalispell), Glacier Park, Great Falls and White Sulfur Springs.

    Definitely some good riding in the area. The wife and I jumped on the bikes last Sunday. We went north thru Newport, WA then west over the hill by 49 degrees North ski area. Had lunch in Chewelah. Up the highway to Colville and back east over the mountains on Highway 20. Finally back up along the Pend Oreille river to Newport and then back home. A little over 200 miles with a fair share of twisties and big curves. We saw a moose, numerous deer, and lots of beautiful country. My wife is really starting to like those types of roads as she just started riding this year.

I have a Bro in Law between Sandpoint and Athol.... to go along with the Burke crowd...LOL....then there is the Grangeville crowd...but we won't go there!
