Dudes, I got a flat in the rear of my x8 yesterday and tried plugging it but the holes too big for the plugs to seat properly. I've used plugs before so I know its not me being an idiot! So anyway I got a good price to fit a new tyre onto a loose wheel, I had a quick look at the removal of the wheel but its not the same as a chain drive bike and I need to get it off sharpish as I need the bike tomorrow! Can someone give me a link to the wheel removal?  I'm a properly desperate to get it off today so any help much appreciated!

Remove the silencer (slacken clamp, undo silencer securing bolts/strap and slide silencer rearwards).
Remove centre hub nut on axle and the two nuts where the trailing arm fit to the crankcase. Use a piece of wood through the spokes to lock the wheel. The nut is tight and a normal thread.
Remove lower shocker from the arm and swing it either forward or rearwards as required to get the wheel out.
Pull off the trailing arm noting the position of spacers both under the nut and behind the arm.
Remove the wheel bolts and extract the wheel.
Raising the centre stand onto a block of wood helps give more ground clearance to wriggle the wheel out. Removing the shocker completely makes it much easier but a longer job.
Coppaslip the nuts, bolts and the axle on reassembly then everything comes apart much easier next time.
