    OK so my question isn't about how to remove the wheel, but rather how to get and hold bike off the ground to do the job. A Harley guy at a shop said because of the shock location, he can't raise the bike with a jack. So for you DIY guys how do yall get this done? 02 x1. Thx

    You need a sportbike lift that picks the bike up by the swingarm.

    dont know about an x1 but on my xb12 I used those ratchet straps and hooked on to a car lift that I had raise up. you only need to get it a few inches of the ground.

    He is doing the rear. You need a sport bike rear stand. There are some that just go under the swingarm like this one.



    Or if you have spools you can get a spool stand.




    Looking at this pic you should be good with just a swingarm stand. They have cheap ones at Harbor Freight which is where the first one is from and I use it on my XB all the time.


    Hope this helps.
