Place on Center stand, Remove both side panniers, lids first, then the 4 nuts/bolts holding the panniers on, remove licence tag, remove lower rear mudguard, it attaches with 3 nuts/bolts behind licence tag and 2 bolts either side of lower pannier lower chrome, you may have to remove the muffler mounting bolt on each side, remove the bolt from the front of the brake caliper, remove the rear wheel axle, lift the brake caliper out of the way as best you can without disconnecting the brake hose, remove all spacers and washers noting where thay came from, slide wheel to the right and roll backwards.

Refit in reverse order confirming washer/spacer positioning is the same as before.

Or you can hoist the bike in the air and work from underneath, I haven't tried this method.

Replace rear tire

Hi James
Yes you can replace the rear tire, just follow the steps in the bike owners manual or buy a service manual. After the tire is off if you are not comfortable removing and replacing the tire from the rim you can take it to a bike shop and they will change it for you. I hope this helps. Rod

My tread on my rear tire looks worn and the tire only has 3000 miles on it. Could this bedfctive?

no, this is not unusual, if you have a soft rubber tire. Some tires are made of soft rubber to grip the road better, i would replace it with a high mileage tire. Ask your shop about witch tires they recommend and how long they are expected to last. I had a german racing tire that lasted less then 3000 miles when it blew out and had no tread left at all. For the same money, i replaced it with a high mileage tire that has lasted over 7000 miles and still has lots of life left.
If this was helpful please give it a thumbs up to help others.

When breaking, there is a tapping sound plus you can see oil leak on the in side of the rear passenger tire. I was thinking about oil pan in the tire, please help me, because I know that it is not cv

If it is gear oil instead of brake fluid, then the noise and oil is from the rear wheel bearing (and seal) being bad. They would need changed immediately. Rick
