Hello my fellow triple lovers.
I am having a hell of a job removing the rear wheel spindle. I have tried most of my powers of persuasion on the cursed thing but I have come up short. I have lubed, lamped, tugged, wellied and cursed (quite a lot).The bike has been stood for a few years in my garage but I am at a loss what to do next.

Cheers guys, The spring clips are out and safely lost on my bench lol. I have to admit that the brake carrier is very stiff, so I have to assume that the spindle is very corroded. I will use a longer bolt to hit the spindle with as the spindle bolts are barely showing.
Thank you very much for the advice.
Stay safe, ride safe.

Well, that went with a bang. I used a FBH and wellied the bejayzus out of it. Absolutely solid inside. New spindle time methinks.
Thanks again for the info.
