might it be easier to loosen most of the fender bolts and swing it up? Thats how I change my rear tire, I have to swing the fender up in the air to get the wheel from under the fender. On my 650 its the passenger seat (or any saddle bags) the driver seat, and then four bolts out on the side rails, and loosen two into the fender, unplug the connector, and the fender swings up.
If you only take the wheel off, and you have to do any wiring up there with the fender in place, you will be standing on your head.
