Tire arrived today so I decided to pull the rear wheel and get started on cleaning that up and mounting the new tires,  I removed the exhaust and brackets as I intend to replace them anyway and it was easier to move around in there.

Muffler hanger removal, I remounted the passenger pegs as my wife will ride this with me on occasion.img_9984img_9986

In order the pull the tire out I had to let all the air out to get it past the drive gears and swingarm/shock mounts. I also had to pull the brake lever to remove the exhaust and am having a hell of a time getting that spring back in place???img_9985

As she sits while I get the wheel cleaned up and tire mounted.  I like to put all the bolts , axles, and such pack in place so that I know where they are.  Keeps things a little more organized.img_9992
