Easiest way to remove swingarm bolt?

Hey Guys,

I'm painting the rear sets on my bike, i bought a 2nd set of all parts and theyre painted and good to go. I just want to pop off those 2 big brackets (whatever you call em) that the swing arm bolt goes through and replace them real quick with the painted ones.

I'm thinking of using the swing arm stand to lift the bike up a bit and then place two jack stands underneath the frame just in front of the swing arm. I think that would let me remove the swing arm bolt without causing much fuss.

Any other suggestions?

I did the same thing when I took the swing arm off to weld some tabs on it.
Suggest you crack all the major fasteners free before you rest on the jack stands.
The bike won't be as stable, being the reason.
I'd also do the final torquing after the bike is again on the race stand.
