You see those round circular things in the first picture? They are the swingarm shafts, what it pivots on. There is a threaded hole in each one, you screw the proper sized bolt (and I can't remember the size) into them, and pull them out. the swingarm will then come off, and the driveshaft will disengage from the bevel drive gearcase and come off with it. When you put it back on, you will need to check and adjust the clearance between the swingarm and the frame on the left side. It's good you already have the exhaust system off, as you have to remove most of it to get the swingarm off.
If you are going to be doing a lot of work on this bike, I suggest you either download the service manual from here, or get the Clymer manual. I got the Clymer manual, and found it to be excellent. Jerry.
