Road King rear tire change tips

I'm having trouble searching. Been almost a year since I changed my rear tire. I had written down a way to change the rear tire without removing the mufflers. I lost it. I remember removing a shock or shock bolts, jacking up the tire. Any help would be appreciated.

If you put the bike on a lift and remove the shocks, the frame can then be lowered so the wheel bolt will clear over the top of the pipes. Works for my 05" RK.

Anyone have a tip for an easy way to get the caliper back on the rotor? This is what always gives me trouble.

Re: "Getting the caliper back on". Make sure the pads are pushed back as far as possible, allowing the largest gap between pads -- makes it much easier to position the caliper back.

It should. We did my buddy's ultra the same way as my RK. The glide should be similar.
