If you're talking about a jack like this:

then there should be tie-down points on it. Try strapping it down towards the front to try and take weight off the back end.
You SHOULD use cargo straps to tie it down anyhow, so it doesn't fall off the jack!

Jack the rear of the bike as high as you can safely get away with. The rear fender makes you require a lot of clearance to get the wheel clear of the bike.
Make note of the protrusion of the rear brake actuator rod and remove it from the actuator arm. Remove the bolt from the rear brake plate anchor arm.
Remove the plastic cover from the left side of the axle.
Remove the cotter pin from the axle end, then remove the nut by holding it with a wrench while turning the left end of the axle with a socket. You may need to tap the right end of the axle to start it moving out, and this is a tight area because of the pipes, but it should not take too much coercion. Once it begins to budge, you should be able to work it out from the left side. Remove the axle spacer.
While supporting the wheel ( I use my auto jack for this), wiggle the wheel until the drive unit splines disengage. You are now ready to work the wheel out from under the fender. There is a sleeve inside the drive end of the wheel, try not to let it pop out and get dirty. Don't forget to grease those drive splines when reinstalling, and to restore the brake rod to its former setting, unless you are adjusting it at the same time.

SOURCE: how to removal the shaft from the rear end to

Hello,

In order to remove the rear wheel, it is not necessary to remove the drive shaft. The first step is to get your rear wheel off the ground. The easiest way to do this is to put your bike on its center stand. However, not all bikes have center stands. If your bike does not have a center stand, you may want to buy a motorcycle lift (available from Pep-boys, or Harbor Freight). Once the rear wheel is off the ground, you can disconnect the brake linkage, and then remove the rear axle.

At this point there is nothing holding your rear wheel to the bike except for some meshing gears. Now you must lift and maneuver the rear wheel back and forth a little and eventually the final drive will work free. You will be able to slide the wheel toward the right side of the bike and then lower it to the ground.

In theory removing the rear wheel is that simple. In practice, the gears in the final drive can sometimes hold on quite tightly. This is particularly true if the rear wheel has not been removed for a long time or if your final drive is very worn. Usually being patient and persistent will pay off and you will be able to remove the rear wheel.

Sometimes it may prove easier to remove the entire wheel / final drive / drive shaft assembly first, and then separate them. In this case, the order of operations is different. Once you have the rear wheel off the ground, you can disconnect the rear brake linkage just as before. Next you can remove the four bolts that hold the drive shaft housing to the back of your crank case. Finally you can remove the rear axle and slide the wheel backwards the unmesh the drive shaft.

Regardless of which way you remove the rear wheel, it will be easier to put it back together by first attaching the drive shaft and final drive to the crank case, and then reinstall the wheel as described in the first method above.

Good Luck,
-Josh

Changing rear shocks


Surprising not to have a centre stand fitted to a tourer, however it can be supported on the frame rails beneath the motor if weight is distributed over a large area and balanced. A sturdy crate or stand is required and someone to help you. A moveable ramp or block and tackle for front wheel is easier to lift and keep steady.

The other ways (smaller back wheel &/or smaller & stronger shocks) are trial & error which usually ends in bigger problems

Sounds silly, but I need to change the rear tyre. Any free "how to" manuals please 08 Triumph Rocket III


Removing your rear wheel is fairly easy, however, if you don't have a tire removal and replacement set of tools, it turns out to be far less aggrivating to take the bike to any local tire shop and just have them do it. I speak from experience. Save your mind and a few less gray hairs. Thanks, Dana

Clicking noise in the rear end of my 2005 Rocket 3


It sounds like a bearing but you need to investigate a little further. Put the bike up on its center stand, rear wheel off ground. Then spin the wheel by hand and find that sound. IF you hear the sound really try to pinpoint its location. Then of course you need to get the repair book/ maintance book and go through the trouble shooting list. Good luck
