I had a suppose to be mechanic pull the rear tire to do some work on the gas tank. I now amfaced with another problem, the rear tire rubbing and the brake calliber is tight and appears to be stuck.It was not doing this before at least I think not.I decided to go ahead and get my hands dirty and try and fix it myself since the guy won';t even return my calls. The rear tire is rubbing on the left side frame. I can't get the calliber to come off. Also do I un bolt the shocks at the top and bottom, they are air shocks.I am thinking the calliber may have to be re built. The manuel is not very detailed on the removal of the rear tire. Any advice would be welcome froma bunch of great people on this forum.

Hey Frank, if you look on page 239 of the Clymer manual, gives a pretty good removal process. I had a tire rub too, but it was rubbing on the brake caliper torque tube. You do need to remove the lower mount for the right air shock. It also says to put a couple of 2X4's under the rear tire so you can get the axle out. You'll understand once you start to drive out the axle.

Oh yeah, you're gonna have to go back and forth from page 138 and 239-240 which is the supplemental section.

Sounds like the mechanic put the spacers back in the wrong way.

I discovered after I gotinto it that the part, not sure what it is called, bolts to another part that the calliber bolts to was missing a inside washer causing it to have play,this would possibly cause the wheel to rub aganist it.This part had a bolt with a cotter pin thru it. I put a washer in it which forced it to the outside away from the tireand it is much tighter with no play. The calliber was sticking causing the rear wheel to turn slow. So now I have to check out the calliber and find out if I should get another one or find out what is causing this one to stick. I carefully made sure that the wheel was not rubbing anywhere. I now think it is a calliber problem.
