    Works GR8! Not for putting the lugs back on though. Too much torque

    Be sure to wave back!

    Can't speak to the Harbor Freight product since I've never used it but here's a tip that will enable easier rear lug removal. I use anti-seize compound on the threads. I think I read about it on this forum and maybe Mr Harmon himself recommended this tactic. Yeah, anti-seize likely screws with getting an accurate torque of 80 ft lbs but I figure that torquing a lug nut isn't nearly as critical as torqing head bolts.

    BTW, while the rear lugs loosen easier than the first time I loosened them, it still takes some focused attention. The point is, even with using anti-seize, the rear tire isn't going anywhere you don't want it to.

    It's from Harbor Freight. Nuff said.

    I just torque em at 70 ft lb. ( not 80 ), just tight enought to hold and break loose without pulling the bike too! Four years, and not one loose nut yet! (well maybe me!)
