Now you will need to get the bike up off the ground. Again you should have suitable lift equipment that will make this safe and secure otherwise you might end up in a real mess. If you don't have the equipment then do not try to "make do". It's a big bike, it'll hurt you.
Remove the axle nut and the washer behind it. From the final drive side of the bike put a wrench on the axle and turn it slowly while working it out. This can be accomplished by taking a screwdriver or other suitable object and pushing on the opposite side while turning the axle. DO NOT use your fingers as this might result in something bad.
Work the caliper assembly out of the way of the tire. What I did was laid a rag over the pipes and then let the entire assembly rest on the pipes.
