Exclamation NEED HELP - REAR TIRE

Can anyone give me some tips or directions to taking off the rear wheel off of a 2007 GSXR 600. I ran over a screw yesterday, and Im going to get a new tire at cyclegear tomorrow, but they said that I have to take them the wheel cause they dont have room for the whole bike.
If not, does anyone know any place near HWY 6 & Westheimer where they wont rape me for a tire, and that I can take the bike to them?

Any help will be greatly appreciated!!!!

We're the same / cheaper than Cycle Gear for the tire, and we charge $37.50 on the bike for mount and balance, $10.00 off the bike.
I'm more towards 45 on FM1960 though.

you should have the proper tools in your tool kit under the seat that was provided you with the bike. you should also have a manual with the bike that will tell you exactly how to do this.

loosen up the chain tension bolts/ nuts, then break loose the axle nut, slide tire forward and remove chain, also you'll prolly have to remove the rear brake caliper, then pull the axle out and the tire should be off.

if this doesn't work and your bike falls over, it wasn't my fault. :icon_bigg

good luck bro..

Dude it is super easy like CarbonR1 said loosen up the chain tension bolts/ nuts, then break loose the axle nut, slide tire forward and remove chain, I did not have to remove the rear brake caliper, but I did have to remove the chain guard then pull the axle out and the tire should be off. see my puics below PM me if you have more questions I have never done this before tonight but the rear tire for me was way easier than the front tire I did a few months back

stands are worth their weight in gold....like 150 for a set(front and rear) of the motoboss or more if you want something highdollar like the pitbulls.
