Welcome Aboard.
Are you using tire levers or a manual tire changing machine like the ones sold by Harbor Freight?

Still trying to remove tire from bike
A couple of tips, if you didn’t remove the exhaust. Which I never touch. Remove; left saddle bag; left shock; release air from right shock; and while on a lift, raise rear until the axle aligns with free space enough to slide it out. I drop tire out the bottom which eliminates any trailer hitch fiddling, you should have Honda moly paste for the splines upon reassembly. It is now sold as moly 77 paste in a squeeze tube. Cleaning the old grease and dirt from the splines is fun. A drip pan and a few cans of brake/parts cleaner help a lot.
