So, how much stuff has to come off to get the rear tire off? I have a wrap around bumper and was wondering what I'm in for some day.

You can remove the rear wheel without having to take all of the chrome off if you have a motorcycle lift such as the kind that Sears sells. I had my rear wheel off this spring and didn't have to remove anything but the aftermarket exhaust turndowns and saddlebags.

This is what I was refering to. However, I see where the original thread pertained to the shocks. Whoops:DAlthough when I put my 416's on, I didn't have to take the bumper off. I did have to take the top shock nuts off and then the chrome stuff would come off the stud just enough to get the shocks off then back on.

Guess what? Your both right!! I was asking about removing the back tire on a bike with a bumper/hitch. But I have rear shock removal on my list of things to do.

Yes. I was speaking of the situation with the 83I. I do not have any experience with the 1200.When I approached the maintenance on the rear end of my bike, I was dismayed at all of the stuff thatI thought I'd have to remove. However, I found that loosening some of the attachment points on both sides would allow me to wiggle the parts out of the way after taking the nuts off of the primary attachment areas.

Actually, I don't see where the question was asked about what had to come off to replace the shocks.:baffled:I do see a question what pertained to what had to come off to remove the rear wheel.

Wait a minute, you started this thread. Are you playing with me?:shakehead:
