Remove The Rear Wheel From A Buell Ulysses

Remove the Rear Wheel From a Buell Ulysses

Like any vehicle, the tires on a motorcycle need to be replaced occasionally. To do this, or to change out the rims, you need to remove the rear wheel on the motorcycle. On a Buell Ulysses, this can be a bit awkward–it can be difficult to get the tire out because of objects in the way.


1. Place the jack underneath the center of the motorcycle and lift it up until the rear wheel is about 1 inch off of the ground. Unbolt the rear caliper from the brake caliper bracket using the 3/8-inch ratchet and socket.

2. Locate the axle pinch fastener on the right side of the axle. Loosen it using an open-end wrench. Unbolt the lower belt guard from the frame using a 3/8-inch ratchet and socket.

3. Loosen the bolt on the end of the axle using a 3/8-inch ratchet and socket and an open-end wrench, then lift up the jack about 6 inches higher. Finish removing the axle from the frame, then slide the belt off the sprocket. Lower the wheel out of the frame.
