Yeah, I run into that too.

I have a good scissors jack that I use to lift the wheel/tire assy up into position to slide onto the drive splines.

I'm confused as to how you guys are driving the axle out with the muffler in the way. I tried to replace my rear breaks a while back and only accomplished in busting open my nuckles on some sharp metal bits.
Couldn't disconnect the drive, and couldn't even get access to the axle outside of removing the castle nut.
Is removing the mufflers part of this process??

Replace the stock mufflers with after market and the problem goes away.

I know you believe that you understand what you think I said but I'm sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant.

'05 Honda VTX 1300R Champion trike Kit. Mustang Seats and Backrests, Kuryakyn ISO grips, pegs, floorboards, shifter and brake peddles, Cup Holder. Universal passenger arm rests, Wolo horn, Vista Cruise, Shark 600 watt stereo, ShowChrome Risers, lots of chrome.
