That won't work, the telelever arm moves with the tire. You would have to get the strap over the top of the inner fork tubes. Not likely.

I think if you remove the bolt through the lower part of the shock you can then move the wheel up, but no way to know just where the top of travel is with the shock unhooked from the telelever.
