Remove Back Wheel VT1100

Last time I removed the back wheel I did all this. Is there an easier way? Thanks!

Wow, I hope so. Plan to replace tires soon and hope I don't need to do all that.

I would park it sideways over my Handy Lift so that the wheel could drop out straight down. I've done a few cruisers this way including a VT1100 and a couple of Harley's. I had a buddy who would dig a hole under the back wheel of his Wing to get clearance.

Raise bike. Loosen shocks. Pull axle. Drop wheel out below.

Removed my 1997 VT1100C's rear wheel a few times and it's very simple. No need to remove anything from the top end, just put the bike on a bike stand and remove brake connector and wheel axle bolt. Wheel polls out easily. Just slide wheel away from drive shaft gearing then poll out.

Not sure how to describe it. Did you remove the rear tire or did you remove the whole front end of your bike?

"Remove axle and drop wheel straight down."

Problem is, there's not enough clearance to drop the wheel straight down. I can't get bike any higher.

Seems like lifting the bike with an engine hoist would be a way to go, but not at my house.

Thanks

thats the way I do it also, you can get past exhaust with axle shaft by taking lower part of shocks loose, then just let things drop down and remove wheel assembly, but then I have a bike lift, with rear drop out

jack the bike up, remove the shocks with a second jack or ratchet strap pull up the swing arm till the axle clears the exhaust. I've used a scrap piece of metal bar with a couple of holes drilled in to put in place of one shock to hold everything up and out of way once I get the swing arm up.
