  • front pulley nut

    Hi Guys, someone told me to check the front pulley nut on my road star, they say it can back off. Has anyone herd of this happening? Would anyone know the socket size for a 2005 ?

    It does happen. When I got my 05 and joined the forum it was the first thing I fixed. I had to buy a new pulley nut and washer because the damage was already done. I don't remember the size or the tourqe specs but if you search the forum you'll find it.

      A 36 mm axle socket at Crappy Tire is $19 x 15% sales tax = $21.85 can.

        Remember Canadian tire also lends some of the specialty tools, like axle nut sockets...Ace

      Different years take different size socket... 3 different ones I believe. Remove nut and washer, order new washer and nut, clean up threads onbshaftbwith brake clean and wire brush, use Red loctite (heavy duty strength) and torque to 110 ft-lbs.

        That's a lot of foot pounds! Will putting the bike in high gear and have someone hold the brake good enough to hold it while torquing?
