I'm attempting to (with assistance) pull off jhennlys slick wheel swap (http://vstar-650.blogspot.ca/2012/07/how-to-vstar-650-wheel-swap.html) for my v star 650, using the appropriate xs1100 wheel. The problem is the guide is quite old, and for a newbie like myself it's a bit dense.

Does anyone have more specific information on the process, or could maybe break down the steps mentioned in his post? The main stumbling block is specific measurements for shaving parts down. If I don't feel I'm capable of it, I'll take it to a bike shop, but unless I can give them specifics they may not do it. Thanks!
