Rear Wheel Installation

Engage the drive chain with the rear sprocket.
Insert the axle from the left side of the wheel.
To prevent a soft, or "spongy feeling" brake, center the
brake panel assembly in the brake drum as follows:
Tighten the axle nut lightly.
Install the torque link bolt and nut.
Spin the wheel, and apply the rear brake, and then tighten
the axle nut to the specified torque.
Torque - Rear Axle Nut: 88 N·m (9.0 kgf·m, 65 ft·lb)
Adjust the drive chain slack (see Drive Chain Slack Ad-
justment in the Final Drive chapter).
Install the removed parts.
Torque - Torque Link Nuts: 34 N·m (3.5 kgf·m, 25 ft·lb)
Insert a new cotter pin [A] to the rear axle.
When inserting the cotter pin, if the slots in the nut do
not align with the cotter pin hole in the axle, tighten the
nut clockwise [B] up to next alignment.
It should be within 30 degree.
Loosen once and tighten again when the slot goes past
the nearest hole.
