    Learn something every day, didn't realise you could remove the wheel without removing the caliper first? Also the brake hose should slide within the hugger ?
    Speed doesnt kill, its how fast you stop.......

    Mine doesn’t reach without coming out. Think the 12 had some extra hose length.

    my 15 wheel comes out without moving the caliper but you have to loosen the chain guard to move it over a little.

    Once axle bolt has been removed roll wheel forward and pop chain off the sprocket, then roll the wheel back and slide caliper rearwards simultaneously and once it has slid free of swingarm locating mount then carefully lift caliper out of wheel and above swing arm to rest on brake lines. Be careful the caliper doesn't touch the wheel rim as it could scratch it. This is a simple job which I have done many times so just take your time and you can't go wrong.
