Lookin for advice … as I don’t want a repeat of my troubles on Sunday when I'm at the side of the road. Took the rear hub off the TV to make sure the hub was seated correctly and tightened properly (It has come loose twice in a fortnight )…. It’s the first time I’ve taken the rear wheel off that bike and what a right royal pain in the arse it was getting the wheel off and on … the gap between the mudguard flywheel cowling and panel clip is way too small …. With the GP the panel clip moves, but the TV clip is solid …. What have others done to get around this stupid design - I had to deflate the fkn tyre and I read on the web of people cutting the clip back which seems a bit extreme.
As an aside I had an interesting ( fkln dangerous ) experience with the torque wrench doin the hub back up ….. under load the spring and locking mechanism fired off the back of the wrench and smacked into the wall 10 feet away…. Took it back to machine mart who replaced, but of course had never heard of one doin it before.

Rock and a hard place mr B, the only thing I can think of is to fit traditional widow maker tyres as these are thinner that modern tyres or just accept your hub will be chipped to feck at every tyre change. This is also murder wi S1/2 models also. You could just carry an air canister like those adventure bike drivin gay lords(sorry brads)!!!!!!
