Re: help!!!!which way is loose...rear axle nut 450R

never mmind I got ....there is a jam nut that holds the disc brake assembly on..and a blasted snap ring...they are left hand threads and you have to loosen the larger nut first, then you loosen the smaller cup towards the disc. remove the snap ring, and slide everything off....if you are replacing the whole assembly use a pipe wrench, and who cares, otherwise drop the $76(OSH) for an 18" crescent wrench and the special wrench for the larger jamnut....that way your stuff still looks pretty.... the axle slides out to the left...other things to help loosen your tires and hubs before taking the brakes off, and loosen the sproket as well...have fun and hopefully this helps anyone who needs to pull the axle on the 450R....

From the back of the quad you will need to be pushing down on the wrench to loosen the jam nut. You will need a lot of pressure.

Good luck!
