Just take the nut and cradle it gently in both hands. Pay special attention so hold it from underneath so you don't drop it. You don't want to scar the nut and they'll be plenty of time to be rough with it later. Now slowly approach the shaft with the nut in hand. Don't go too fast, take your time. once you have the nut in place, turn it firmly but gently. Paying attention not to twist it across the threads. Once you get it in place, use a torque wrench to secure the nut, pulling firmly until the wrench gives. You'll know when the job is done. Now sit back with a smile on your face, wipe the sweat off your brow and put your shirt back on.

(there's a tang washer in there too but mentioning in took away from the instructions.)

You forgot where you gently slide and roll the Tang washer over the shaft as far as it goes to prevent any kind of accident or blow out later on.

Then Beat the Living out of the tang washer to flatten it out over the nut!

Wait, if she had her shirt off, she wouldn't have had to do any of this. She could have gotten one you highly experienced, AMI trained, motorcycle repair experts to do it for her...


with a torque wrench.
