Do you mean removing the tire from the rim, or the wheel from the motorcycle?

I find it a very simple job. I put the wing on it's center stand, put something heavy on the passenger seat (old bag of cement) to make the front wheel lift up into the air. You then remove the 4 bolts holding the front of the front mudguard in place, loosten the bolts holding the front calipers, remove the wheel axle and the wheel comes out very easily.. It's easier than it sounds. Getting the wheel back in is a little more effort as you have to lift it slightly to slide the axle bolt through, but it's easy enough to do. Budget on 30 to 45 mins to remove the wheel and another 30 to 45 mins to put it back in again. Once you have the wheel back in, don't forget to pump the front brake lever a couple of times to get the pads to come into contact with the disks, otherwise you forst test ride can become a very exciting ride at the first stop!!
