Doesn't anyone remove the seat then the bolt thru your bags, flip the bags and trunk up out of the way, loosen both mufflers, swing them down and pull the axle?

My preferred method. Not everyone agrees but just seemed to me to be less impact and once the rear frame section is pivoted up, you have clear room to do everything you want.

Which bolts through the saddle bags ???, are you talking about the ones inside the bags ????
Looks like the rear crash bars have to come off in the picture.
I'd like to try this some time.

There is one bolt inside each bag. I will try to include the picture pointing to this bolt one time when I had to remove just one bag. Also included is a picture of the bolt you remove, after several times of this mine got roughed up a bit.

There are access holes thru the forward end of the saddlebag to reach those bolts. I changed bolts as well but went with socket head to be easier to reach and install. BTW these lower bolts do not have to be completely removed though you may want to, especially the first time. The rear subframe has open forks that go over these bolts. When mine was open, I smoothed the forks up and filed a bevel on the opening to help things go back together.

The top bolts under the seat need to be loose of course. Don't forget to retighten them.

The two halves of the inner fender are plastic and have interlocking tabs. They will unsnap on the way up but might need some help to line up correctly on the way back down.

And golwang97 you really threw me off with that picture. Took a couple looks to figure out that it was fringe on your surrey.

I don't miss those days, and the days of my 1200 tire replacement. Used to remove all the necessary stuff before taking it in to have the tire(s) changed. Not that I do my own on the 1800 but still, those 5 hub bolts are a great improvement IMO
