Does anyone know of any good write ups or videos on how to change the rear tire. I've been looking around trying to find one but haven't found a solid one yet.

It has to be very similar than changing the tire of a VN2000.

If that it the case:
Remove top muffler
Remove the brake caliper
Lose the axle nut
Put the bike on the lift and put the bike straight
Remove the rear axle
Push the wheel forward and remove the belt
Lift the bike and remove the wheel
Replace tire
Balance wheel
Put the tire back
Lower the bike enough to install the belt again
Install the axle
Install the brake caliper
lower the bike
Torque the axle nut and install a new cotter pin
Install the muffler back

If you are looking for a video on changing a tire off the rim, search you tube. I saw one about a month back where the guy used zip ties to compress the tire and then it slips right off the rim.
