Good Thread! I decided today to get my two spoons and install TKC 80s on my 990 adventure the old school way...on the floor with some soap and water, spoons and wrasslin'. What a disaster. Banged up my black front rim (that black finish comes off REALLY easy when spoons hit it) and couldn't get the bead to release on the rear tire. Tried the 2x4 trick under the pickup truck and was able to get one side to go, but not the flip side. Screw that...decided to quit for the day and park the rear wheel until I get the No Mar changer. Ordering one tonight.
