I made a bunch of these and thought y'all might like them.

They work great, I've been using one for years. I have been asked to make some for a while and decided that since they had a hard time finding one I would go ahead and make some. These are solid billet aluminum with the Yamaha logo on one end. Perfect fit and knurled for a great hand hold to push it out even if the axle has not been lubed. We use them at our shop.

Here is a vid of me pulling the rear wheel with one hand while holding the camera.

I'm selling these for $38 shipped as these are solid aluminum and not plastic like all the others I've seen.

PM your Paypal and I will send you an invoice
Or you can go to my ebay store if you would like

My seller ID is: r.t.suspension
My Ebay store address is: http://stores.ebay.com/VonHertell-Racing

But why not put the axle in the other way so the axle can hold it instead??

not without a cotter lock pin (like a gixxer). there's a chance the nut could come undone with the wheel rotation direction
I've ran with my nuts on the left without issue for years. If your axle is turning, you've got bigger problems.

That, and if your axle is turning the same direction as the wheel, it is turning into the nut, not out of it. (if the nut is on the left). The only connection the nut has to the rear wheel is through the axle.


Still, these are pretty pimp and I might just have to pick one up and turn my axle back around.

That's how I run mine.

safety wire ftw. But never had a issue with mine.


What models/years does it fit? Work with 09 R6R?
Yes it will. I know all 3rd gen for sure, most likely 2nd gen as well.

PM sent. I bought one of these made out of the hard plastic from the WERA classifieds a few years ago. Kicking myself because I didn't buy two. I want an extra. These things are worth their weight in gold. I can swap out a rear tire in under a minute, from start to finish.

I will suggest that people take off the brake pads, and grind down the edges of the bottom part of the pad to a 45 degree angle. It makes fitting the brake rotor into the pads MUCH easier.

This is one of my favorite tools. Op, how much inventory do you have? I'd like to pick up an extra someday soon. These look much better than my hard plastic one.

For whatever reason I literally have no issue ever doing my own rear rim. Other people's give me trouble sometimes. Maybe it is the brake spring on my MC or the machined rotor, but I get mine first try, one handed. Never an issue. I may grab one up for the shop tho. I dig the racer discount he offers.

OP, shoot me a PM with payment info. CCS racer #726

The flipped axle does not work near as good as this tool. The threaded part of the axle is a smaller diameter and the caliper flops around too much. It is easier than w/o this tool but nowhere near as easy as with it.


Oh, there have been two different payments to PayPal w/o any address

If this is you please PM me your address. Thanks
