How to Change Motorcycle Tires : Install a Motorcycle’s Axle Nut & Carter Pin


Hi, my name is Drew Neilon from Myrtle Beach,
South Carolina in Little River. I work at Beach Customs and today I’m going to show
you how to change and maintain a tire for Expert Village. After everything’s all lined
up and straight, now I need to tighten up the chain adjuster nut so this won’t back
out the main bolt itself. So I’m going to take the nine sixteenths again and tighten
the chain adjuster bolt so that won’t back out. Alright now I’m going to go ahead and put
the axle nut on.
On there. Get your torque wrench, set for sixty foot pounds. Go ahead, tighten it down.
And when you hear it click, it’s nice and tight. It’s tight. Take your carter pin, place
it through the axle hole itself. And then your needle nose pliers and just bend over
the axle pin. I put the carter pin in and I twisted it around at the bottom so that
the carter pin won’t come back out. So now it’s there for good. And the reason that I
put the carter pin in is so this axle nut won’t come out. So I know that this bolt will
stay on this bike.
