HiCustomer
Are you trying to take the rear wheel off and put it back on or get the tire off the rim?
Thanks

I should have specified in my question that the issue is that this model is a 'SHAFT DRIVE' and I've never removed a tire from a bike with a shaft drive. It cost $18 to replace a tire off the bike and $55 to drive the bike in for a tire change, so I want to know how to remove the tire and rim from the bike!

Dan,
Thanks for the information. I understand it is a shaft drive bike, but just wasn't sure whether you wanted to take the wheel off or change the tire.
Now that you have specified, let's get on with it.
First, place the bike on the center stand or if it is gone, elevate the rear wheel.
Next, remove the adjuster nut for the brake assembly and the nut and bolt that holds the brake stay arm to the brake backing plate.
Then remove the axle nut and slide the axle out. Depending on whether your exhaust system has been changed or not, you might have to remove a muffler to slide the axle out.
Take the spacer out that is between the brake assembly and the swing arm.
Slide the entire wheel assembly towards the right, it will come off the splines and can then be dropped down and removed from the motorcycle.
The assembly proceedure is the reverse, just remember to grease the splines before reassembly, and when going to align the splines on the wheel with the final drive splines, it may be necessary to put the bike into gear so the final drive doesn't turn as you rotate the wheel to get the splines aligned so the wheel will engage them.
