Remove rear wheel

Hi, I want to take out my rear wheel to fit new tyres. Do I need to remove the exhaust to take it out?

    Exhaust must be removed.

    You don't need to actually remove the exhaust.
    Remove the hanger bolt, slacken the clamp, the silencer will swivel down & away allowing the wheen to be removed ;)

    Ok thanks, will give that a try. Should not be too hard.

    Make sure you grease the swivel joint while you have the chance, likely to corrode and be a bugger to move if you don't do some maintenance on it.

    They have a graphite joint so don't need greasing, but a little wd40 can help assembly if it has been removed.

    Removal turned out to be quite easy indeed. Exhaust pivoted without obstructions. New roadsmart 2 tyres will be fitted tomorrow and should be a step up from the original scorpions I would imagine. Hopefully reassembly will be just as easy.
