I think someone had mentioned that taking one end of the shocks off would let the swing arm lower enough to get the wheel off without removing anything else. I personally wouldn't know though because the VLX doesn't require anything to be removed to get the wheel off.

That's what I do. Got to have the sequence right, though, because disconnecting the shock then raising the bike makes it difficult to disconnect the brake caliper.

+1. Also a good time to inspect the shock bushings for wear. The rubber POS's that they are.

The caliper is going to follow the axle down. Just have the small bolts for the brake line off where it follows the swingarm and you can lift the caliper and bracket as the axle comes out and lay it over a towel covered muffler.
