Doug, the stand won't help you as it hooks onto bobbins on the base of the side plates which have to come off to get the swingarm out.. Best idea is to tie the front end down and use a lift under the sump to get the weight off the rear wheel. Get the wheel and brake caliper off, separate and remove the bevelbox, then take off the side plates, you'll need to unhook the gear lever linkage from the gearbox, then you have access to the swingarm spindle on the left.
Undo the shock linkage bolts so its disconnected, good idea to grease these bearings too.
Undo pinch bolts, undo castellated sleeve and then snip the two cable ties that hold the boot between the gearbox and swingarm. Remove the spindle, (14mm key.) and pull the swingarm back off the driveshaft. You can then pluck out the bearings and marvel at their lack of grease!
