Rear wheel removal
Contrary to F 800 GS which uses standard axle nut sizes, the F 850 GS rear axle nut is an unusually large 34mm nut. There were no 7075 T6 lightweights tools on the market, only conventional steel tools. For that reason Eastbound has added the 34 mm ring spanner to its product range. The removal of the rear wheel is otherwise standard as on any conventional double sided swing arm motorcycle.
Front wheel removal
To remove the front wheel of the F 850 GS series BMW , you need a 12 mm Alan key to remove the axle bolt, a T40 Torx to loosen the pinch bolts and a T50 Torx to remove one or both of the brake callipers to allow the wheel to pass between the fork legs. All these tool are included as 3/8 inch bit elements which fit into the 3/8 inch bit adapter.
