1200 DVT Thinking Ahead, Hub Removal.

Discussion in 'Multistrada' started by BigAlan, Feb 15, 2020 at 10:22 AM.

  1. I know at a dealer when you have the Desmond service at 18,000 miles they remove and clean the rear hub, while I am not at that mileage yet when the time comes I want whoever does my valves etc to do the minimum I can’t do keeping the cost down, the rear hub I can do, so with this in mind I know I will need a decent pair of circlip pliers, I might as well buy them now in readiness for such a task, anybody recommend any?

    Anything else I should be thinking about?

    Thanks.
     
  2. 13" ones, no particular make I bought a set from ebay for about £16, they do the job admirably, no other special tools required, just take not of the various spacers and shims and make sure they go back as they came out, one is shaped but hard to tell
    also make sure the circlip is firmly seated after re fitting, it seems to be pulling against a rubber seal further in and just needs tapping home properly, both times I've done mine it needed this
