You wont need to disturb the hub when removing the rear wheel.
Its much easier to get to the 3 little fixing bolts for the hugger.

As far as removing the wheel...Its one nut..clockwise to undo.

It's as Joe said.....just remove the rear wheel

given the clearance it would be hard to do otherwise

Fitted mine without removing the wheel, fiddly but not impossible. Took about 15 minutes. This was on a 920 don't know if the earlier bikes have less clearance.

Mine is a 09 989R and i keep trying to convince myself it can be done but there is just so little space.There surely cant be much of a difference between your bike and mine so if you can do it then surely i can also.

The distance between the wheel and the swing-arm is determined by how far back the hub is rotated backwards or forwards, when tensioning the chain.

Have no idea if there are more links on 920 chain but my bike was brand new with less than 200 miles on the clock so no stretch on the chain, as a maintenance engineer I have an advantage in being used to working in tight difficult to reach places.
