to take off the rear wheel the exhaust must be removed. so first you will want to look at where the headpipe meets up with the cylinder head. there are two 10mm socket nuts that need to be removed. then you will notice the larger bolts that bolt the muffler to the bike, those come off as well. with the exhaust removed. the large axle nut on the rear wheel needs removed, and the wheel will slide off the splined axle. be sure this axle is lubed with grease when reinstalled, this will ensure good spline health. and then just reinstall all in reverse order.
