    Maintaining Rear Wheel LEFT spokes

    As we all know, there are 2 sets of spokes on the rear wheel. One set is screwed onto the RIGHT side, and the hex screws are clearly visible and accessible on the depressed center hub.
    The other set of spokes are screwed onto the LEFT and the screws are hidden underneath the ABS ring and buried under the Shaft mechanisms + behind the brake disk.

    Question: How do you guys service the LEFT set of spokes? Seems like I may have to remove the rear wheel to tighten the LEFT spokes.

    For info....I removed my rear wheel to fit a Pyramid hugger.....it was very easy to do but you'll need a torque wrench when refitting / tightening the bolts

    Yes, I have looked at the Service Manual and the steps to remove rear wheel sounded reasonable.
    Thank you for chiming in.
