Hi, I hope I can help with this.
You should only have to remove the lug nuts and the wheel and tire will be removed. If you removed the center wheel nut then it sounds like you are trying to remove the brake rotor. To remove the wheel the 5 or 6 lug nuts need to be removed. To remove the rear spare tire there is a plastic cover to remove which then has a key hole (locks for security). You will need to unlock this as well.
depends which model,but undo the 1/2" bolt in the centre of the wheel and slide wheel off axle. However by experience i know that if the axles havent been removed and axles greased regularly then you will have trouble getting them off, You will need to spray wd40 or similar dowm the axles and then jack up rear of machine, get a block of wood and a big hammer and knock the wheel from the inside while sprying wd40 onto the axle every time the wheel moves a bit
Place the bike on a suitable stand, undo the wheel spindle, remove the bolts securing the lower chain guide as the bolts reduce clearence, support the wheel by placing a block of wood or similar under the wheel, remove the wheel spindle along with the addjuster blocks on the spindle, now push the wheel forward and remove the chain from the sprocket by
I had this same problem, but eventually figured it out.
The wheel comes off by removing the little black piece in the center of the yellow hubcap. There are a couple of snap tabs in this black piece, but it comes out well enough. You'll see the end of a metal rod going through the center of the wheels. Remove the star-looking washer and pull the wheel off. The other wheel will now come out as well, taking the rod with it.
Behind the wheel, you'll see 2 screws that hold the motor assembly in place. You'll also need to remove the seat and black cover to access the motor assembly.
CAUTION: Do not apply lubricant to the threaded end of the wheel spindle. NOTE: Clean the wheel spindle (including the threaded end) of any dirt or grease using the specified solvent before installing the brake disc. To install, reverse the removal procedure.
To ease installation, lubricate the inner race of the bearing assembly using the specified lubricant.
Yes, the plastic covers need to be removed first. Trouble is that rust or dirt may cause them to be very stiff. Try using a pair of grips to remove them or any other tool that you have in your toolbox. Discard the nut covers as they are more trouble than they are worth.

Hello, and welcome to FixYa. Let me assist you as follows:
Removing the rear axle shaft is realy quite easy.
Her is what you need to do:
Remove the wheel/tire.
Remove the rear brake drum.
Remove the brake line to the rear wheel cylinder and plug the line.
Remove the park brake cable.
Remove the entire rear backing plate assembly; no need to remove the rear shoes.
When the backing plate is off, the axle shaft slides out of the axle housing; there are no "C" clips to remove, like on a Chevrolet. The axle is not held at the differential in any fashion.
Note that if you replace the axle shaft, you will need a machine shop to press the wheel bearings & seals onto the new shaft.
If you have any further questions; please feel free to respond.
Thanks for choosing FixYa for assistance; the graciousness of a FixYa rating for my instructions would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
