Want to upgrade to City Grip 2 on the rear of my 2018 GTS 300.
Can't pull the wheel off the axle because it's stuck to the swing arm.
First thing I went through was the upper right bolt extremely difficult to remove because the bolt is BENT. That's right there's a bend in the thing. Checked its treads that seem okay but why the bend. Did the bend ruin the inside housing tread? IS IT THE CAUSE for not being able to remove the wheel from axle? It's obvious that the installer has the PSI too high on the pneumatic. OR it wasn't calibrated. How about putting no seize on the axle at the factory!
Anyway after several attempts with pry bars and hammer taps to work in the BLASTER solution, I must stop for fear of breaking something.
Does anyone has a suggestion to separate the wheel off the axle? Robot has a $40 tool to do it but there's a disclaimer it doesn't always work.
Please offer your suggestions.
