Lots of Torx fasteners on the scooter.
Scooter on center stand with front wheel chocked.
REAR AXLE NUT torque104-126 Nm 77-93 ft-lbs
Remove 2 small Torx screws from exhaust shield.
Loosen the 3 larger Torx holding the muffler and the hex nut on the exhaust joint.

Remove the 3 Torx and wiggle the exhaust off.
Save or replace the exhaust gasket ( I used new)

Remove the cotter pin at the axle nut.
Break the 24MM axel nut loose. (I used a 1/2" Sears impact gun)

Remove the 2 Torx holding the small plastic cover at front of fork to expose both fork Torx. Remove the fork.

Inner fender must be removed in order to remove the wheel.
4 fasteners hold the fender in place.
2 long silver screws on the Left side, below the air filter box.
One small black Torx screw buried at front of the fender - accessed from the Right side with a long Torx driver.
One black plastic push pin (like a panel fastener pin) holding Red Topped wiring atop of the fender must be released - I pulled it up and out with long needle nose pliers.(or remove underseat bucket....that plug with red taped wire sits right on top of the fender down there)

When all 4 are removed - fender can be lifted straight up and back - with some difficulty@#%^! THE hardest past of the project. Study the view through the wheel spokes of the Left side to see where the trouble is while you wiggle the fender.

Once fender is off .....wheel comes off. Pay attention to the order of things as wheel is removed.

I inspected the rear brake & cleaned as much as I could reach while the wheel and fender were off.

REPLACING THE WHEEL AND FENDER.


I slid wheel part way on....to give the fender wiggle room while I worked to refit the fender. Once fender was in place and 3 screws in place...and that black panel pin inserted back in top of fender tab......

Push wheel home. Lube & install the cone. Replace fork on axel and insert 2 front Torx bolts. Tighten the 24MM axle nut, install the cup and cotter pin.

Slip muffler back on exhaust pipe -- not damaging the gasket...until 3 muffler mounting holes line up for the 3 Torx bolts (use a probe to line up) ...Secure joint clamp.

Replace muffler heat shield.

I took wheel and new Pirelli Angel to my local multi-brand dealer to have tires swapped and new valve stem. $40 --- and tipped the youngster $10 for being careful with my rim.
Started at 8AM - finished by 2PM. I spent time cleaning every part, and applying ACF-50 to many parts.











NOW THE FENDER
[/url]

From the right side ...locate near the thick black cable....

Pull up the panel pin and remove the small Torx screw.




FROM THE LEFT SIDE
....below the air filter box




CLEAN .........


Loosely slide the wheel on, place fender over it and start lining up for the 3 fender fasteners. Note that it must match what you saw through the spokes before you removed the fender!

When fender is in place, fasten 3 screws, plug in wiring panel pin. Push wheel home and install all in proper order.

Again - I had he most difficulty with the fender...off and on! The wheel, fork and muffler were easy.



O.S.
probably forgetting stuff - but I'm tired.

Just a note.....
That blasted fender may be easier to deal with if the underseat bucket is first removed. Left hand on fender above tire...right hand in the engine bay maneuvering the top of the fender into place??
Worth a look next time. May have to apologize to the Italians for my French.?
