hey guys,

Yesterday i changed my rear wheel on my GTS. I decided to explain, for novices, how to remove rear wheel on this ride.

(Sorry for my poor english. I hope it will help u)

See you
Remove turn light, in order to unscrew nut of lateral stripe.

remove screws to pull off the pipe

If you don't have any impact wrench, just brake!

Just pull the metal plate.
Sometimes, ball bearing is griped on drive shaft. In this way, you'll have to remove it with an hammer.
At reassembly, don't forget to lub it with a good grease (Teflon, graphite...)

Nice pictures and details. They are in the wrong order in preview only. Once you post, they are in the right order.

Your English is far better than my French, no apologies needed.

You do not have to remove the tail light to get to that nut. Just lay on your back and reach up from underneath. There is plenty of room to reach it with a socket and get it loose then just finish taking it off with your fingers. It is a lot easier than taking out the rear turn signal.
Have you downloaded the Parts and workshop manual for the GTS 250 from the Wiki site here?? They will give you the names for the "no name" parts you pointed out. 8)

Keep up the good work and have you posted some pictures of you and your scoot in the nice countryside you guys have over there... or even in some of the very sceinic parts of the towns???
and as Starreem said, your english is not bad.. I understood everything your trying to say, so you did very well. Clap emoticon

Great write-up! If I may add, the "no-name part" is just a small spacer.

I was wondering, though, have you ever had your centerstand changed? Your GTS has the style that is found on the Granturismo. No problem there, just curious.

I thought he was refering to the cover over the nut...

Also, when I removed the rear wheel, I didnt' have to remove the turnsignal or the lower trim panel. Is it easier to get to some bolts this way?

No I've never changed my centerstand.

I live in the south of France, in Marseille. I do not remember if I've ever posted some pictures...

Probably because it's a 125.

Very nice, crisp write-up (or "picture-up"?).

For a more detailed approach that also covers some tips and may prevent some mistakes, you may want to check out my thread here.

you guys are right about the castellated nut cap. For some reason, on my first read through, I thought he was referring to the spacer behind the nut.

As far as the turn signal goes, it may be easier to remove it the first time just to see the fairing nut better, but I've always just done it by feel.
