I seem to remember dropping both shocks on my Asp to get the clearance. A floor jack really helps...........

On the GL1000 you take the bottem shock bolts loose. Then with a board or something raise the rear wheel to clear the mufflers and slide the axle out..

Just did this job. Take the left rear bag off, take the rear splash guard and rear fender extension off. Take the chromed rail center section that goes between the two saddlebag frames off. These are held on by a clamp on each side with two 10mm bolts. After that's done,remove the axle nut and remove the lower mounting bolt on the left rear shock (let the air out of the rear suspension if so equipped. Pop the bottom of the shock away from the swingarm. Put a jack under the left side of the swingarm and raise the swingarm up until the bolt clears. Remove the brake caliper and then the spacers taking note of where they go. Pull the wheel towards you when standing on the left side of the bike and it will release from the drive splines and you can pull the wheel from beneath the bike.

Hope this helps you.
