Jack the bike up off the ground. Remove the axle nut and the belt guards. You might want to loosen the belt tensioning bolts and allow the front wheel to move forwards just a bit. Drive the axle out. You may have to take your muffler off so the axle will come out. When you put the axle back in, start from the left side of the bike and have the nut behind the muffler. Make sure you mark and make a drawing of what spacer goes where. You should have three as best as I can remember. One is a long spacer and two short ones. The short ones go in the wheel bearings and the long one goes on the belt pulley side. Lower the wheel and allow it to roll forward a bit. Jack the bike up a bit higher and work the drive belt off the drive pulley. Tip the wheel over and jack the bike up until you can get the wheel out.

good Luck
Steve

If you have the wheel properly installed, putting the rear brake back on the bike should not be a problem. The brake caliper bracket should act as the wheel spacer on the right side of the bike and must be properly positioned in order to get the axle back in.

With the caliper bracket on the bike, make sure the brake pads are properly positioned in the caliper bracket. Double check to see that the pads are not installed backwards, especially on the back side of the rotor. Carefully, slide the caliper down over the pads, without distrurbing them, and into the caliper bracket. If this is giving you a problem, you may have to press the piston in the caliper back into the the caliper just a bit to clear the pads. If you replaced the pads with new pads, press the piston all the way back into the caliper. I usually use a large pair of slip joint pliers or a large C-clamp to do this with. Make sure you put a rag or something around the caliper to protect the paint. Good Luck!
