Changing Rear tire GL1500

Hi Goldwing 1500 rider, about six month I down load a procedure to remove the rear wheel by tilting the top-box & side boxes, and I had the opportunity to use this procedure on the weekend, and it worked brilliantly, and I would recommend it to any 1500 owner.

I did it a few times on my 1500 and I thought it worked pretty well as long as you knew that you had to be careful with the tab where the fender splits and to loosen the frt of the bags.Couple of extra hands/eyes to set it back down was handy too although I did do it myself a couple of times.I liked the easy access to all the backend with it fully tipped up.Some have tried it and wouldn'be caught dead doing it that way gain.Oh well to each there own.
If I'da known it would last this long,I'da taken better care of it.

I tried the lift method and found that, for me, it is so much easier to just remove the bags and rear cover. Way to time consuming to realign and refit the frame bolts and yes the potential for damage is there also. Glad that it worked well for you though.
