Question about Yamaha YZF-R1 Motorcycles
The rear of the motorcycle needs to be elevated so that you can remove the wheel. A swingarm stand works very well.
Remove the axle and push the wheel forward.
remove the chain from the sprocket and remove the brake caliper from the rotor. This may require moving the wheel forward and aft to get the caliper out.
Now the wheel will move out to the rear.
After the tire is change install the caliper on the rotor. Be sure that the brake pads are on either side of the rotor.
Re-install the chain and then tighten the axle after you have adjusted the chain. ( 1 1/2" slack)
