Removing the rear wheel is a 20 minute job that even the least experienced spanner hand can do. So here is a quick how to.

You will need to jack your bike up to do this easily, and before removing the axle ensure that your wheel is supported from underneath.

Remove the nut on the rear brake rod, it will turn easily by hand after a few turns. Just push the lever on the drum forwards, this will take up the tension from the spring and undo by hand. If it is stiff use a 14mm socket or spanner to loosen it first. When you have removed the nut, you will also have a washer behind it and a spring further up the rod, Remove all 3,

.

Next Undo the nut and bolt that secures the brake drum in place via the rod.

Rear Wheel Removal, Suzuki C800 / M800 IMG_1097_zps72a33e32

I used a 14mm ring spanner for this task on the nut at the rear and a 14mm socket on the front bolt head.

Rear Wheel Removal, Suzuki C800 / M800 IMG_1104_zps3f0de463

.

Now undo the nut that holds the rear wheel axle on, for this you will need a 22mm socket.

Rear Wheel Removal, Suzuki C800 / M800 IMG_1080_zps6eb744cc

.

Now gently tap the axle bolt through a little from the side you are working on towards the drive shaft side.

Rear Wheel Removal, Suzuki C800 / M800 IMG_1086_zps2177dec7

This is what you will now see from the drive shaft side. Now pull the axle through and out of the wheel.

.

Now remove the spacer that is between the frame and wheel if it has not already fallen.

Your wheel will now come out

As already mentioned this is a 20 minute job that even the least experienced spanner hand can do without any worry at all.

Also if the rear wheel is ever off. That is a very good time to check the rear brake shoes.

Just what we need, some of the basics covering in detail. This sort of job would scare a newbie without any wrenching skills because of the bike being shaft driven. They can see from threads like this how easy it really is Rear Wheel Removal, Suzuki C800 / M800 184121345

Just what I needed there Dave cheers mate, quick question though....when replacing the rear wheel is there anything to look out for in terms of the mating surfaces? Might sound thick here but what locks the wheel to the final drive assembly?

Cheers,

Jim.

No mate nothing that locks the wheel into place when fitting it. Just lift the rear wheel into place and pull it over to the left until it is sat inside the drives splines & push the axle through.

Hi Kevin, Try taking the weight of the wheel of the spindle by lowering the jack till the wheel is touching the floor, leave the nut on the end of the spindle to protect the threads and tap with a sideways on hammer until it's released, failing that remove the top silencer to gain better access  Rear Wheel Removal, Suzuki C800 / M800 3498837457

Remove Two Allen Bolts from between the silencers then undo the clamp nut at the front of the silencer it's sort of underneath round the back.

You might want to disconnect the o2 sensor plug if your removing the silencer and placing to one side, It's behind the right side panel just follow the wire from the sensor on the top silencer.

Managed to remove top silencer and O2 sensor. Loosed bottom and got a spanner on the axel nut. Wheel removed. I'm not looking forward to putting it back together or paying another £140 if it can't be plugged. Tyre replaced only a couple of months ago with Michelin commander ggrrr... Thanks Sim.

as long as the tyre is not damaged on the sides you should be able to get it fixed is even better if the hole is in the tread when fixing because the plug fixed bit wont wear down Rear Wheel Removal, Suzuki C800 / M800 3498837457 as the tyre does

if you had had slime or the like in ya tyre it would probably still be ok to ride on ohhh the what if's in life lol hopefully you can have it fixed Rear Wheel Removal, Suzuki C800 / M800 3005623951

Get a plug kit and do it yourself Kev, it won't cost much more than having it plugged and you can throw it in the panniers in case you get another puncture  Rear Wheel Removal, Suzuki C800 / M800 3498837457

I put in ultraseal in repair. Thought it had fixed it but it didn't. Oh well. Might have to clean that out before they plug it.

Question regarding weight distribution when removing parts such as the rear wheel.  Thanks for posting the above - this is my first machine and I am keen to do a major clean over the winter being able to remove the rear wheel (and seeing how easy it is) is good news.  I have a flat based jack and holds up the bike really nice - when the rear wheel comes off do I need to think how this will effect the balance on the bike and therefore where I position the jack in the first place.  Or any other tip really for jacking up the bike.

It's always worth strapping the bike down just to be on the safe side but the bike stays steady enough when removing a wheel, I usually put something under the remaining wheel just to take the weight of any off balance.

Piece of cake.  However, I recommend using a proper bike lift that fits under the frame - the wider the bed, the better.  Make sure you mark the exact position of the brake cam on the splines before you remove it - get it wrong & you're going to have to take it off to re-position it
