Requires special tool. If ya don't have it, you wont get very far. If you do, I suggest that you lubricate the threads for the swing arm bolts with some nut and bolt penetrent a few days before you work on it. Mine had alot of mud and crud in when I went to loosen the bolts. If you got the tool, its not that hard. The tool is a spanner wrench. A buddy of mine had one that he had made many years ago. Apparently the swingarm bolts are the same as when he used to work on his shaft driven honda three wheelers back in the day.

If you use the hammer and punch, I would make sure that you lube it up with nut and bolt penetrent a few days before you do it. Mine was not easy to get out with the proper tools.

I think the only line that I had to remove the vent line. Its been a few months since I broke it, so I'm kinda hazy on the process. I had the bike on jack stands, and the axle on a floor jack. When I took the bolts loose, I had a buddy pull the swing arm away from the bike just enough to get to the joint. The brake lines were still hooked up. I replaced the joint and put it back together. Be careful, one the swingarm bearings fell out on me and I ran the swingarm bolt all the way in before I realized something was wrong. I took the whole thing back apart because I couldn't figure out why I had slack in it. Then I found the bearing under the floor jack. Hope this helps.
