If I back out the axle 15 turns to loosen the belt will the rear wheel fall out? Do I need rear stands(that I don't have) to do this? Forum search hasn't turned up an answer,and I don't want my bike to take a nap!

No, it will not fall out. But it will be extremely hard to pull it back in so you really should get a swingarm stand, even the cheap tube style that Harbor Freight sells for around $40 will work.

You also can do it this way,
bike on the sidestand and a zip tie or some rope around the brake lever and a block of wood under the right-side of swingarm.

Thats how I change rear tires... Lock the front brake, leave it on the sidestand, and use a floor jack under the rear of the exhaust.
