hi, the bigest problem with this bike is supporting the machine safetly enough and high enough to remove the wheel, first start off by loosening the axle nut, then procede by supporting the machine, if no stand is available, you could use a jack and a peice of timber underneath the engine across the l/r frame tubes,undo the rear brake unit by removing the locking pin and the nut on the lower torque arm located on the brake drum note order of washers and if poss replace nut to save misplacing them, next check the amount of free play in the brake pedal, before undoing the rear brake control rod nut, when the nut is removed press down on the pedal to remove rod from brake arm, again replace nut to save loosing the spring on the rod, next raise the machine on its stand or jacking device to a height suitable to remove the wheel from underneath the rear mudguard (fender unit) next remove the already undone axle nut and withdraw the axle from the wheel and shaft housing, now remove the spacer from between the brake drum and frame on the r/h/side and place in a position on the same side of the machine for quick replacment. you are now ready to remove the wheel from the shaft unit, leaving the brake drum in place in the wheel,standing asside the rh/side of the machine pull the wheel unit away from the shaft towards you this may require some to and fro movment on the front and rear of the wheel,the wheel should fall away quite steadily, alowing the wheel gently to lower ground remove the wheel tilting it slightly will increase clearence, the only difficulty with this job as i previously mentioned is supporting the machine and keeping it stable so any undoing would be prefered with the wheels on the ground, replace in reverse order, hope this helps paul
