Remove Camshaft Position Sensor using Allen Wrench #
??? (Put bolt back in afterwards)
I spent a couple days mulling over whether or not to incorporate this into guide. While I always like to my guides to be as inclusive as possible (especially since some folks may not have a rear stand), I've decided to retain the wheel removal as the de facto standard for several reasonsNice work! ... There´s no need to take the rear wheel off. Just take of the nut and the chain adjuster plate from the rear axle, that gives you enough space to take the chain off...
That´s why i wrote "first of all: Loosen the nut from the drive shaft."JoshCampbell said:I do like your suggestion regarding using a piece of wood to lock the drive sprocket. It makes sense to keep it in neutral rather than placing sudden torque on the gears. Obviously this doesn't work without the rear tire....
Absolutely right! :thumbupJoshCampbell said:Removing the rear tire will give access to areas of the bike which typically get neglected (by the inexperienced, like I was). For example, cleaning the under tail, the chain pad, the area around the shock, etc.. Checking break pads or flushing brake lines. Repacking the rear tire bearings. Greasing the axle. Inspected the rear sprocket. Physically manipulated the chain to check for tight spots. etc. etc. etc.
