    Best money he could spend would be to buy the service manual for that year/model.

    Agree with the rec for the Factory Service Manual. The first thing to do is to support the rear end of the tranny. As soon as you push the swing arm pivot out of the frame, the tranny will move and may even make it hard to push all the way out of the the tranny. Just make sure the back of the tranny is supported BEFORE you start taking the pivot shaft out.

    Cheers,

    TQ

    My service manual takes two pages to cover swing arm pivot removal. That is in addition to the page about rear wheel removal.
