I worked as a PDI @ riders in b'ham for a while and had to change a few rear wheels, the 1st thing is to deflate the tire then use a coat hanger wire that is strait. Place the wire @ the center of the axel bolt head and then following the swing arm up to the center of the swing arm bolt head, then use a zip tie to mark the coat hanger. Then move to the other side and check to seeif they are the same . They should be. Then move to the disc break and remove the calliper, do not remove the break line. Once you do this you can loosen the axel nut. I assume you have the back tire off the ground, so now you can move the wheel to the front and remove the drive belt. now you can remove the axel and drop the wheel down and out . do this opposit to put it back on remember to use your coat hanger to reset your tension on the drive belt , hope this was helpfull.

Do I need to take off the muffler to take off the rear tire on 2001 Sportster Custom?

It depends on which way your axle in inserted through the swingarm. If the nut is behind the muffler, no. If the nut is on the opposite side of the muffler, probably.
