Tuareg 660 rear wheel removal
Aprilia has made the rear wheel axle design a bit more complicated than necessary. The Aprilia Tuareg 660 rear axle nut is an unusual 26mm nut partially recessed inside the swing arm. It requires a conventional 26 mm socket or offset ring spanner to properly access and remove the 26 mm nut.
This kit includes a special Eastbound low profile 26mm x 3/8″ Aluminium 7075 T6 socket for that purpose. The socket is driven by the 3/8 inch breaker bar adapter and the Tyre-Pro modular handle set. The low profile socket is much shorter and lighter than standard steel sockets of that size and much easier to pack.
Tuareg 660 front wheel removal
To remove the front wheel of the Aprilia Tuareg 660 you need a 17 mm Alan key to loosen the front axle bolt, a 5 mm Alan key to loosen the axle pinch bolts and a 13 mm socket to remove one of the brake callipers to allow the wheel to pass between the fork legs.
The 17 mm HEX sliding adapter is purpose made by Eastbound for removal of front axle bolts. The kit also includes a 10 mm x 3/8″ bit holder socket (*). This socket fits on the 3/8 ” breaker bar adapter and holds the 5mm Alan bit for the pinch bolts.
* – this 3/8″ x 10mm bit holder makes the tools set multifunctional. You can use 10mm Alan, Torx and screw driver bits in this super handy bit adapter.
