I got the rear axle nut stuck on my Yamaha FZ07. In this video I share with you how I solved this problem.

 

Ride safe.

So the question I have to ask is: How does somebody go about doing this without damaging the adjustment cap on the right side of the bike? Is it a try and hope you get lucky or is there a way around getting caught up in this debacle?.

only thing I can suggest is to make sure the threads outside the nut are clean before you put a wrench on it and maybe lubricate the threads and maybe behind the nut with a bit of penetrating oil to cut down as much friction as possible. 

 

You'll want to wipe those parts dry before reassembling as any lube will result in you making the nut too tight. 

 

On the plus side, those side plates are pretty cheap if it goes wrong. 

 

I've had mine off a couple times w/o damage - it's not an absolute..

Thanks rick, I have r&g rear stand bobbins covering the axle nut. I'll be sure to give it a good looking at and take the necessary precautions.
