Here is how I reinstalled my rear tire after getting my new tire mounted. A local Yamaha shop mounted and balanced it for $23.00.
You will need to have a 6mm hex key to do this plus a good set of metric sockets from 9mm and up along with your other compliment of tools. I am sure that there are some things I forgot to mention but this is the gist. Hope it helps.
Added: start at the bottom and go up...dang it, I too fell victim to the switcheroo that happens between formatting and the final upload of multiple files on this forum. Sorry but I don't have time to go back and fix just now.
The new tire is a Heidenau K58 that I got from Scootershop.com. The old was the crappy Michelin Pilot that came on the scooter....got 3500 miles on it and some in here say that was a a lot for that tire. As you can see I may have squeezed out too many
Slid the muffler back over the exhaust pipe and bolted it back in place. Put muffler clamp in place and tightened. Done!
Reattached the shock then the parking brake (to the rear) and the rear brake (forward) I also put the mud guard screw back in as I forgot it on the last step. The axle nut cover and cotter pin are back in place...don't forget to get a new cotter pin.
Put the bracket back on and bolted to the engine. Put the spacer and axle nut in place. The bracket bolts take the 6mm hex key.

Wheel back on the axle. Had to put it in top first under the mud guard and hold the shock back. Goes on pretty easy.
New tire ready to go. If you look close you can see that I put most of the bolts I took out when I took the tire off back into their holes so I wouldn't mix em up.
