If the rear axle is larger that the old 996, you might see if the MV Agusta stand will work. I know the MV's rear axle diameter was huge compared to the 996.karalunj said:I am awaiting the delivery of my 1098 like many of you but would like to get a jump on some of the items I will need once it arrives. I am curious as to the hub size on the rear so I can purchase the right one to fit the 1098 rear wheel???? What stands allow the removal of the rear wheel? I have seen a wheel removal socket adapter and wonder what size I will need to fit the nuts on the rear wheel???? Lastly, do the front forks have a hollowed section at the lower tip which could be used as the prop point for the front lift so the wheel can be removed? Any help would be much appreciated....
