just noticed you have a vegas.
loosen the nut, jack the bike up. loosen the belt. probaly gonna have to take the belt guard off. once you get the belt off slide the shaft out. take notice of the spacers, one is smaller than the other, also the spacer on the belt side has a larger hole on the outer side so when ya put the tire back on remember which side goes out. i've taken to tying the brake caliber up with a plastic tie. a manual is a big help here. i hope i rememebered everything. also when putting the tire back on, an extra set of hands will help greatly. good luck.

yeah it does come out the exhaust side. i have swept pipes so i forgot about removing the exhaust. if you have stock pipes you can just remove the mufflers. pretty sure just removing one will work.
