Correct procedure to remove rear
Do you mean tyre or wheel.? Tyre removal requires the use of a tyre bead breaker and levers and rim protectors, once the tyrehas been broken away from the wheel all around on both sides , start tyre removal with the valve at about 1oclock insert a rim protector followed by a tyre lever and rest it against the rim protector and under the first bead of the tyre, then push the tyre into the middle of the wheel rim at about 6oclock on the rim, and keep it down while yuo push down the tyre lever against the rim pulling the tyre over the rim at the valve end, you will then need to insert another lever close to the ready inserted one to continue pulling the tyre over the rim all the way around untill removed completely, wheel removal on this bike is easy, securing the bike is not, because of the rear fender design you will have to lift the bike high enough to remove the wheel from the rear of the bike once it has been removed from the bike, Remove the securing nut from the r,hand side its a little fiddely unless you remove the exhaust silencers which is probably the best bet, remove the rear caliper and carrier from the bike, pull the wheel spindle from the left side out, it may need a slight. Knock to start from the r,hand side, then the caliper. Carrier can be removed , note order of spacers, and place in a safe place for replacment, from the right grab the wheel with both hands and pull gently untill it is removed from the diff, carefully remove from the frame takeing care not to mark the wheel or other paintwork, and not to dismount the vehicle fro its stand,
