ShadesOfGray's wiki page on wheel removal/installation:
Could use an update including the actual installation of the rear wheel (along with a short-list for install/removal).
Here's a thread discussing it:
The more recent responses in the thread have a specific short-list of remove/install steps. Providing a short-hand list of steps in addition to the lengthy description-version will come in handy (along with adding the section at the bottom for "installing rear wheel").
ShadesOfGray mentioned in an edit at the bottom of that wiki page about holding off on the "install rear wheel" portion until getting service manual info for socket and allen wrench sizes.
Here are the "special tools" listed from the Kawasaki service manual from section "Wheels/Tires 9-3":
Bead Breaker Assembly
Inside Circlip Pliers
Bearing Remover Shaft
Bearing Remover Head
Bearing Driver Set
(Those are tire specific (not wheel), so they do not need to be added to that particular page.)
Regarding socket and allen wrench sizes - the service manual doesn't provide specific sizes. ShadesOfGray already provided most of the sizes in the "removing rear wheel" section of the page, the same would apply to the "installing rear wheel" section. One thing that isn't listed - if including caliper removal/reattaching along with rear wheel removal/installation - is the hex key, which is a 6mm hex key socket

Feel free to use the steps in the thread linked above as a reference for adding the "installing rear wheel" section.
Here are a couple important specs, straight out of the service manual:
Torque - rear axle nut:
80 ft.lb. (110 nm, 11 kg.m)
Torque - caliper mounting bolts & brake hose banjo bolt:
18 ft.lb. (25 nm, 2.5 kg.m)
(It was brought to my attention in the thread linked above that the brake hose does not
need to be messed with at all, so the 18 ft.lb. torque above can just apply to the caliper bolts. (And of course the 80 ft.lb. rear axle nut torque.))
