his is the best tip ever. I tried this with a new 160/70-17 on a Harley Deuce wheel and I used plain jane tie wraps and it worked great, I was amazed!!!

I have been working on and riding motorcycles for 41 years and I have never seen any one do this!!!

Did you come up with this idea or was it passed on to you?


THANKS

Well thanks HD, but I can't take all the credit. Remember this trick from grade school?

Thinking about trying it with large plastic zip ties. Anybody done that yet?

He made it look too easy. I just spent an hour in the garage, following his steps...just to remove the Maxxis IT from the rim. No way it was going to slide off as easy as his did!

I'm now dreading the installation of the new tire...and tube.


I quit.

There's no way the new tire is going on the rim with the equipment I'm using, tire spoons. I can get it about 2/3s of the way on the rim, and the last 3rd just spins around the rim. One step forwards, two steps back. I don't see any way of making the strap method work with tubes either.

the rim that he was using is different from what you have on your bike. You have to make sure that the tire is pushed into the centre of the rim on the before you can lever it over the last half. Try using three tire irons one to stop the slippage and two to put the tire on, if you do this the tire should go easily if not your doing something wrong.

Got the tire back on, but the tube is leaking like the Hindenberg. Back to square one.

BHW,

I feel your pain. Best Rest products has some interesting tools for dummies like me, that make the job much easier. The Best Rest tire changing DVD is AWESOME for boobs like me. David Peterson does a great job explaining everything on his DVD. Well worth the $20 for me.






I might be wrong, just ask my X...

Took the tube back out last night. Patches not holding. Will try and put in a new tube today without tearing it!

Popping one side of the tire off last night went smoothly though. Either I'm getting the hang of it, or my bead is tore all the heck!

Sorry Jim,..

I wasn't steeling your thunder. Your 'tooless' tire mounting method absolutely positively ROCKS.. I was just try to help the poor dude.. You guys have heard my struggles a while back. After mastering your technique, purchasing the BeadbreakR, and then the BeadsetR, and Davids outstanding DVD (tire changing for idiots) I know that my tire changing days are going to be a lot easier..

I feel your pain! The only patches I trusted were the old "vulcanizing" patches you'd clamp on and light up with a match. Cool as hell with the billowing cloud of smoke. Once they were on, they were ON. I understand that they were outlawed by the EPA(!). I never had much luck with the glue type, no matter how much I sand/scrape/clean the tube they never stick very well for me...

I'm very interested in this "tool-less" tire change method, though. Back a whole bunch of posts, wasn't there a mention of a balancing stand? Did I imagine or miss it? (I've missed alot, that's for sure).

I ended up getting the patches to hold eventually....more of the rubber cement they came with combined with some gorrilla super glue. But I already slipped a new tube in. Don't trust the patches after the ordeal I had with them.

This is great. I just got done mounting a set of Anakee 2's on my g650gs. I put the tubes inside the tires and then used heavy duty zip ties like the ones that the cops use for cuffs around the tire, left the valve stem barely protruding from the bead lined it up and slipped them on. It worked great, didnt pinch any tubes.

I like this thread......I just had some Michelin PR2s installed on my K1200RS, we could have easily put the tires on by hand just like a bicycle, "Made in Thailand" Michelins...... I guess I don't need to buy a tire machine after all, just a balancer.
