do you mean remove the wheel? tires are best left to a shop to do as they have the machine. drive shaft yes? undo all bolts thru frame to final drive casing. slacken wheel nut but do not remove spindle, pull wheel back and out of the frame the drive shaft comes with it, tace out spindle and now lift final drive from wheel, there may be a spacer which might fall out. done deal..

1) Make sure your fuel petcock is closed, then detach the gas line coming off it (left underside of tank)
2) Remove the back seat (single acorn nut on rear fender)
3) Remove the front seat (two allen bolts at the back of seat)
4) There are two metric 12mm bolts under the front seat that hold the tank down. Remove them. The tank should be sitting loose on bike, but connected by some wires
5) Disconnect the white wiring harness under the bike. Tank is now totally free to remove.
6) Pull tank up and back at the same time, it will slide off the two rubber mounts at the front.

first take scews out or head light unit locaded on either side at 3 n the 9 oclock position they should be a phillips then you should be able to remove the bulb it depends on if light does not work and you have replaced bulb you need to use 12volt test light and check for power on the back of bulb I have had at least 3 times that bulb was good an the spade connection on back of ligt it self if you do not have a test light I would pick one up at walmart or local parts store they are pretty cheap and give lot of advise when chacking fo 12 volt power you need to ground the test light bye attaching its ground clip to anything meatal on motor or fram be ccareful not to put onpainted ares when you take the point end of the test light and check the plugthat attaches to the liht the ligt can be unplugged you should have one wire that lights your light when key is on and one that lights the light only when your high beam indacater is on the other wire is a ground if you have no power on thet plug you need to check fuse for the lights if fuse is good may have problem in handle bar switch if it is the switch try a little wd-40 in the switch an then work it back an forth blow excess out with air hope this info helps
