You can use a standard 17mm closed wrench

5) HyperRear / HyperCamber Freewheel durability.
HyperRear hubs have been engineered with a unique large diameter engagement system with 36+36 fully AL7075 teeth pattern.
This special engagement system is based on the low contact pressure of the 36+36 teeth and on the movement quickness of its floating-ring.
HyperRear is capable to transmit a huge torque transmission and proved to survive more than one intense racing season.
We notice that wear itself il still limited even after a whole racing season in wet conditions and without any maintenance.
Anyhow the HyperRear freewheel has a limited life-span and it has to be replaced after 1 or 2 racing seasons, depending on usage conditions.
Internal cleaning and proper maintenance can easily double the life-span of freewheel mechanism and bearings.
However the progressive intrusion of dirt will cause un-free movement of the floating-ring.
This will cause un-complete teeth engagements that can damage the freewheel parts permanently.
Then is necessary to check hub-shell internal splines and to replace the whole freewheel assembly.
Additional note: a badly executed greasing of freewheel internal mechanism can easily damage the engagement teeth.

Spray washing
HyperRear has been proven to resist one complete racing season in north Europe without any cleaning or maintenance at all.
Then it needed only a freewheel assembly replacement.
However make sure to avoid directing high-pressure wash directly onto the freewheel, as there are no seals capable of resisting high-pressure water spray
Dirt can get in and in a short time can/will permanently damage the hub shell splines. This depends also on the kind of dirt-sand that gets pushed into the hub mechanism.

6) What's the cost of the Freewheel Assembly ?
HyperRear freewheel assembly ("Cassette-body + Floating-ring") Euro 109

7) I found mud/sand inside the freewheel mechanism.
Hub-shell splines check (HyperRear version1)
When riding HyperRear / HyperCamber with dirt inside the freewheel area the hard particles of sand/lime progressively grind the hub-shell splines.
The hub-shell splines are the rails were the frewheel "floating ring" should slide in milliseconds, when it get worn as shown the freewheel function get permanently compromised.
Here below you see a perfect example of damaged hub-shell splines (HyperRear / HyperCamber version1).

1) The green arrow shows a spline corner that is still well-square and in good condition.
2) Black arrows show the result of some riding with water/sand inside the hub shell, splines are worn out and corners get rounded. When riding with dirt inside the freewheel area the sand hard particles grind the hub-shell splines. After a while the "floating ring" gets trapped by the rounded corners that sand-grinding develops and is not able to float anymore.
3) While servicing the hub check carefully that all spline corners are crisply square and flat. Otherwise replacing "floating ring" and/or "cassette body" will not solve. It's required to replace the expensive hub-shell.

8) I disassembled HyperRear / HyperCamber freewheel and I noticed some small alloy debris, like needles.
That phenomena is not caused by mileage. Those metal parts area sign of improper engagement.
Using the hub in those conditions will destroy the freewheel engagement very soon. The mobility of the "Floating ring" has been slowed probably by dirt or by non-correct sticky grease. You can take it apart using good lighting and a lot of patience and clean it perfectly. If, after a complete and extremely accurate cleaning, you only find 2 or 3 damaged teeth you can still try to re-use the freewheel, strictly following assembling and greasing instructions (see manual). If more teeth have been damaged you'll have to replace the Freewheel Assembly.
