use the extension of a floor jack....I'm assuming you need more leverage...or if you have a boxed end wrench use it....slide it over the ratchet, turn it whatever direction and you'll get more leverage.

you should not need a breaker bar to get the axle nut off....unless you are using a 6" ratchet or something.

also if you are using a cheap ratchet with a breaker bar, you'll probably break the gear inside the ratchet...i would suggest using a 1/2" ratchet

if it's the axel NUT it's prolly the rear. and if it's a NUT, I don't see how the pinch bolts would effect it.

I,ve seen some of the nuts go inside the lower fork leg, longer than what U see just on the outside, not sure on that exact model tho, if it does U will it up if U dont loosen up the bolts or never get it loose, shouldnt be very tight either way

I see what you're saying...but if he's loosening the rear axle with lets say a 30mm socket he should be using a 1/2" ratchet and he should be able to step on that ratchet and break it loose....not sure how a rear axle could get that tight anyhow....and if you are loosening the rear...make sure to hold the nut&bolt on both sides of the swing arm.

a 3/8 to 1/2 adapter? I have a couple, I use them for the "holding" side while I use my 1/2 for the loosening side.

before I had the 1/2 ratchet i used a 3/8 with an adapter

hm.. my old gsxr's front axle was like a bolt and threaded into a sleeve on the other side.


OH, BTW you are welcome to come and borrow my 1/2 ratchet or my impact gun (electric) if you want.

I'm just saying, I've never seen a 30 or 32mm socket with a 3/8" socket drive...most are 1/2" and you should be able to just step on it to break it loose while holding the other side with an adjustable wrench or equivilant.
