Default Rear wheel removal to install chrome pulley cover

I just bought chrome upper & lower belt guards along with a chrome pulley cover (all HD parts) for my 2007 XL883C. Any advise on removing the rear wheel to install these parts. Do you have to remove the brake caliper from it's mount as well? Do you have to remove the lower shock bolts to get the rear wheel out? Does the belt need to be re-tensioned? Any publications out there online? I did stop at Sears and get their 1500 pound bike jack which has been reduced from $99 to $69 thru 02/24.
