The title of the forum is "what did you do to your KTM 790 today" - well I removed and re-fitted the rear wheel and found it was not easy. I can do this job on most Japanese bikes in minutes. The 790 was a bit more complex. Firstly I found I had to slide out the rear brake caliper to get the wheel out, after that no problems. On fitting the wheel back I realised the chain guard was stopping the wheel clearing the brake caliper, so I removed that. Then the could not get the brake disc into the caliper and keep the right hand axle spacer in. Removed the floating pad and all went in easily. Fitted the floating pad and the chain guard when wheel was in position. Job took around 20 minutes - as I said I can do this easily in two minutes on most Jap machines. Reason for doing this is that I will soon be buying a new rear tyre and I always like to do the wheel change myself.

Yeah, I always remove the brake pads to reinstall the rear wheel. Kind of a pain, but it really does speed things up.

I have not had any issues with 790 rear wheel removal and reinstall. Do same as other katooms and jap bikes.
