    Stratoliner Wheel Removal?

    Just checking if anyone here has removed the rear wheel on a Stratoliner. This is my first tire replacement, and wondering if a saddle bag might have to be removed, or the exhaust? Thanks for any reply, Charlie

    Where Am I ?
    The muffler has to be removed, one bolt on clamp on muffler and the 2 bolts on the bottom of muffler bracket and it will slide off. Now you can loosen the axle nut and belt adjusters, run these all the way loose and push the wheel forward and take belt off pulley. The brake caliper has 2 bolt holding caliper on and it needs to be removed, once caliper is removed the pads will be exposed and can be removed, this will make it easier to install the wheel. Now lift on wheel and push axle out, the brake mount will come out and has a slot on the swingarm that it has to go back in. Just reverse these instructions when you put the wheel back on. Axle has to be torqued to 110 foot pounds and make sure the belt is adjusted. A lift will make the job much easier. Its is also good to have someone help you install the axle, one lift and one line the axle up. One other thing when everything is done pump the rear brake and make sure that pads are seated. Finally, some say it helps a lot to remove the rear fender. Good luck!!!!!
