    Lifting rear tire to attempt chain replacement.

    I purchased a rear tire stand to try to replace my chain.
    This thing only fits, with a few choice words, under both sides of the swing arm. Is lifting the bike by the swing arms ok?
    Thanks for the help and yes I’ve looked at the available video on you tube.

    It should be just fine, just make sure it doesn't slip out from under...
    1st John 1:9
    If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

    John 3:16
    For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

    John 3:17
    For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

    Why does the rear tire need to be lifted to replace the chain?

    It allows you to to rotate the sprocket/chain/master link.
