remove the kicker cover. remove the snap ring on the cross shaft lever and pull the linkage off. remove the shift lever. pull the cross shaft.out to the right side ot the bike. then you can remove the swingarm bolt.

It helped, I removed the shifter and rear exhaust pipe, took a better look and saw a snap ring, got that off and it dropped, was able to get the swing arm off. Now I need to buy a snap ring and snap ring pliers.

Snap ring is a stock hardware store item and the snap ring pliers are needed more for taking that one off, it can be installed without the plier.
