    Rear Tire off...won't go back home

    Broke a chain last week on my 2006 so thought I would replace it and sprockets and brakes. All was well until I went to slide back in the rear tire and the fargn thing won't slide back on. It's almost like its 1/16th too long. I went back a compared my brake shows and they are the same width and the cap seems to fit on the drum about the same. The sprocket side axle plug just seems too long. Played with it til dark and bailed until later today. Anyone encounter this issue?

    Yes. Took me a long time to get spacers and all to slide into place. It'll go.....you have to have wheel perfectly vertical/bike vertical, hold your mouth just right. You'll get it.

    Just one cold beer??? That wouldn't be enough for me. Gotta have at least TWO. And, glad you got it together. So the front is harder than the back??? I'm dreading that. Fighting a front tire replacement, then pinched tube, then a couple months rest and several thirty packs. Good thing I have a spare set of wheels so I can take my time.

    I'm not planning to pull the tire to replace the pads. I replaced a front tire on my ttr last year and it was actually very easy. In Alabama, a beer can refer to a single bottle or a case or a keg for that matter. If I mislead anyone into thinking it was a solo beverage, you have my sincere apologies.

    I went to put my rear wheel back on today after replacing the wheel bearings and it was to narrow for the swing arm. When I knocked the wheel bearings out I never noticed that there are two 6203 bearings on the sprocket side of the wheel (yes my work bench is full of junk)

    The drum front is a PITA - but at least the wheel is lighter
