Trick for mounting 5inch rear wheel?

I remember reading someone's trick for mounting the 5inch rear wheel, but I can't find it now.

I think it was bringing it in from the bottom and taking the chain guide off....

Cheers and thanks

Mark

Hi Mark,

Yes, remove the chain guard - mine at least won't fit with a 5" rear on. For road registering I modified the chain guard and made new brackets etc. etc fit it.

I have always brought the wheel in low and slightly to the left, hooked it round the rear caliper, swung it straight, moved further forwards and up. It is fiddly, almost impossible to explain and probably requires some practice

Cheers,
Simon

I had it worked out on my smc, but removing the 4.25 wheel off the berg seemed even more difficult than the 5" on my smc...

I will be really be miffed if I nick the new 5" rim on the caliper on the first install....

Do you leave the caliper mounted on the guide post at the beginning, or take it off and start with the caliper on the disc and then work both into place?

Cheers

Mark

Leave the caliper mounted but just pull it all the way to the rear of the swing arm - you may need to unclip the brake line to get it all the way.

You will guaranteed nick the rim! So, before fitting, put some gaffa tape over the parts on the caliper and other sharp bits likely to catch, maybe even some on the rim itself.

Cheers,
Simon

I've seen a lot of folks with KTM's are turning the bolts around in their chain guides, counter-sinking the bracket, and using counter sunk screws from the inside. I've heard this works too;
Once you have all the plastic chain guard and metal chain guide off, take the wheel in from OVER the swingarm on the exhaust side at about 45 deg and center it about 1 to 2 inches behind the normal center point where you would slide the axle through. Then as you lower the wheel increase the angle at the same time so you end up with the wheel in the swingarm at it's normal 90deg location but about 1 to 2 inches behind where it needs to be to get the axle through, then just push it forward holding the disk caliper (which should have been located on the swingarm all this time), and slide the axle through.
This was posted by "sfeaks" on KTMtalk. "Bergs and 'Toomers have the same swingarm.
I haven't tried it yet.

I use blue painters tape on the rim.
