Rear Wheel Removal

It may seem like a lot more trouble, but it's actually pretty simple and quick.

Remove the front wheel!

To prevent the center stand collapsing when the bike tilts forward, tie the bottom rung to the header crossover.

With the front end resting on the sliders, the rear will easily be high enough to remove the rear.

The wheels aren't tempered, nothing special about the aluminum. Fairly soft actually. The only concern might be the powder coating - if they're powder coated, be sure to grind it all way back! Paint needs to be gone as well from the area. Aluminum welding doesn't go too well with contaminants.
