Gotta change the rear tire on my 950(T).
I've been riding and wrenching on bikes for decades, but this is my first cruiser (it's stupid easy to change oil on a bike that doesn't have body work or exhaust under the engine!).
Am I correct that I'll have to remove the rear fender?
The Clymers manual doesn't mention the fender at all - I guess it assumes the bike will be on a lift, which I don't have. I'll be using a 2x6 bolted to my floor jack.

Well, I did it.
I DID have to lift the rear of the fender to roll the tire out from under it.
The fender is held on with the two brackets for the passenger seat.
I didn't remove the saddle bag brackets.
I didn't remove the backrest from the fender brackets - I put masking tape on the fender and carefully lifted it all together.
I didn't disconnect the wires for the tail / turn lights.
I also didn't remove the muffler (the Clymers says to).
