Does exhaust need removed to remove rear wheel?

Hello

I'm trying to take the rear wheel off my wife's dragster but I can't get it passed the exhaust. Does the exhaust need to come off or am I doing something wrong?

Cheers

I'm sure you don't need to remove stock exhaust to get rear tyre off

When in doubt, one can always download the Workshop manuals and look through them for a little bit.

It very much depends what stand you are using when removing the rear wheel, if you use a paddock stand which loads the rear suspension it is much more difficult to get the wheel clear.

If you use something like an ABBA stand which life the bike by the frame plates this allows the rear wheel and swinging arm to drop lower this gives you adequate clearance to remove the wheel without fouling the exhaust.

I have a Bursig stand and never have had to remove the exhaust to get the back wheel off.
