Any suggestions for a very, very new rider?

Some people say you need to remove the muffler to remove the axle bolt. That's usually a disaster waiting to happen as the muffler just wasn't made to constantly be removed and the high temperature fluctuations can make the studs brittle and you don't want to keep loosening and tightening them or they could break.

Remove the rear brake lever by removing the small bolt that keeps it on the brake drum and it'll come off. Then loosen the axle nut on the left side. Then remove the bolts holding the shocks to the swing arm. This will drop the swingarm letting you put a screwdriver shaft through the hole on the right side and you can remove the nut from the axle and pull it out and the wheel will come off

For anyone that cares, I just followed Mr. Krabs instructions and it worked out fine! Tip: have a buddy with you to help shimmy that tire off, or, use a bike jack to raise it up.
Sometimes I think I'm better off dead. No... wait! You!!!

I was able to remove the axel, but my wheel seems stuck to the right side (rear wheel). Perhaps it's the shimmy technique I'm missing? Does anything need disconnected on the right side to allow the wheel free?

Sorry for the bad pics and lack of terminology, these instructions may be clear but I don't know my bike vocab well yet

I suspect something in these pics needs disconnected?

In the bottom photo  that nut on the end of the rod with the spring has to be removed.
