How do you remove the rear axle? Do you remove the right side muffler?
Honda must have been big into removing exhaust systems back in the day. You have to jump through the hoops you just mentioned on the CB or remove the whole exhaust system to pull the left side air cleaner. Pick your poison.66Sprint said:Put it on the center stand, remove chain guard.... Take both shock bottom bolts out and pivot shocks back out of way.... Put a block under the wheel to lift it to access axle and remove chain master-link....Etc.... Drop wheel and roll out
Or, you can pull one muffler (with all that involves)....Whichever is easiest for you....
This is why a shop gets so much $ to change a rear tire... It's a PITA.....
