With your learning experience and new knowledge it will be easier and faster the next time you do it.Hey there. Major accomplishment today as I got both wheels off of my 2003 VTX1800c. Front one was straightforward. Rear not so much. A major pain in the backside. I was actually sweating in my chilly garage the moment I pulled the wheel away from the bike. Went by the book too. Sum-xxitch. This is as stripped down as it gets. Wanted a winter project and I got one. I can start on electrical wiring sometime fairly soon.
