Rear wheel removal?

Has anybody removed the rear wheel on their Turismo Veloce? On my F4 it was a 30 second job but with the side exhaust there doesn't appear to be enough room to get the tyre out. I looked to see if I could remove the muffler but the exhaust appears to be one piece front to back. Any suggestions?

Ok, so after further investigation the muffler does come off. I was expecting a clamp and it has a slip joint instead. I hope someone knows of an easier way to remove the wheel without having to take the exhaust off.

Done it a number of times, the easiest way was to remove the number plate carrier then the wheel comes out easily.

Thanks jimbo, I tried that but it didn't seem to fit between the brake disk and the exhaust, I must not have had it at the right angle. I will try again next time.

Roy, just to clarify our TV does have a main stand fitted, that allows the swing arm and wheel to drop giving the clearance you need.
