Re: how do remove stripped nut from back wheel

See if you can get a screwdriver wedged between the frame and the sissybar and try to force the nut outward on the axel while you turn it? Thanks!!!

Try vicegrips if that dont work get out the hacksaw and start cutting the top of the nut off, when you get it cut most of the way threw use your chissle and hammer and beat it off.
