Front wheel removal

Hi guys got my new tires and am looking at the front fender. I have front and rear stands but know the front of the bike is not near high enough for the wheel to come out under the fender. So do I just take the 3 allen bolts out of the fender and tilt it back. I have a bike jack and a couple of floor jacks, which is the easiest from some guys with experience?

Just remove the fender, it is easy, and the wheel will roll right out.

As said above.... But, I don't think you can remove the fender totally as the brake line holder is riveted to the fender! So, just store it back out of the way while you change the tire out. Be careful not to scratch it during removal/installation...
