You won't be able to use a rear stand. You need to take all the weight off the swing arm and drop it down a little. I did it by taking off the lower fairing and using bottle jacks under the engine. The wheel doesn't have to come off.
I'm about to pick up an Ohlins rear & was looking for guidance on what I need to do to change them over on the bike? Does the wheel come off, will I be able to use a rear paddock stand, anything else????
