How to Remove Final Drive hub (Coyote)

To remove the HUB
1. Pick up the bike with a lift
2. Loosen the bolt in front on the swing-arm that holds the brake bracket in.
3. Take out the axel by removing the nut on the brake side...tap it out...and all the way.
4. Pull the rear-brake off the disk and lay it on your pipes (no need to remove the fitting or compromise the brake system..just lay a rag on your pipe and drape it over).
5. Slide the wheel the the right (pipe side)...it will come off the spline
6. Raise the bike high and roll the tire out.
7. Take off the shock and use a piece of tape to keep it high and out of your way (tape it to the fender)
8. Take off the 4 bolts that hold the hub on.
9. Slide the hub right off. The drive line comes out with the hub...it's okay...and easy to re-install

No, you will have to remove the swingarm to get it off.
