What he ^ said. I do a similar rafter thing with a strap but I don't have a hook up there I just hang the strap over the rafter and put each hook on the bike somewhere.
Also as mentioned, front wheel removal is easy. Pull and hang both calipers out of the way-loosen/remove pinch bolt on right tube-remove axle nut, (may have to slide a screwdriver in opposite end axle hole to prevent axle from turning during nut removal)-slide axle out and note spacer that goes between right fork tube and wheel. Then the wheel just rolls out from between the forks, then you can remove the speedo hub.
Installation is the reverse of all that....
It's pretty easy, and like the back wheel/splines, once you do it, you'll find it's easier than it sounded initially.
