Dave,

Not entirely sure what you're asking.

If seating the bead is the issue:

If you've got a heavy duty ratcheting tie-down, wrap it around the circumference of the tire and tighten it up to preload the sidewalls before you add air.

If you're just talking about getting the tire over the rim:

Lots of lube and big irons.

Anything there you can use?

The tire is a monster and I expect this will be a lot diffeent than last year.

screwed

Dr,

I used 2 8" C clamps on mine to get it on once i had the tube in. Before that f'in impossible, put the the 2 c clamps on and 3 spoons, it was on in minutes. I wouldn't say a piece of cake, but it was alot easier than the 3 of us at your place a couple weeks ago, and i was by myself. Of course it helped that the sidewalls on that rear are cracked all to sht, made it easier than your new tire.
I'll come down later this weekend and give you a hand if you need one, or bring it on friday.


Good luck.

Drunken tire fitting at its best

Done and ready to roll . 4 -6" C clamps and a hand from Jr to swing the 4 irons and it looks like we got it. My liners may be a bit wide and that added to the struggle. It was even tougher than my Supermotos.

I'm still going to make some changes to shorten up the gear ratio but I think we're ready to go during the holidays.

What are you saying about the ice there RobbieO? Or is the snow to deep to find it?

It used to be a suspended, two slip boathouse, until the weight of the snow collapsed it and it broke through the ice......

Here's another from the same winter...

Bike will be finished tonight and Moondoggie fixed the big trailer. Get better and get shovelling.

This weather is not helping that's for sure. Half the people I know are sick and the other half won't go outside cause it's to cold.

Can you get a machine on the ice or is it quads and snowblowers.

feels like an iceage, lookin for an icerage

If we can get a decent access to the lake I can always bring up the plow truck (now fixed)(again)(for the third time this week) and make you boys a crash course

When the tourista stop falling through the ice this season we should be ready to go. Not much chance of adults only though. My boy is jonesin as bad as the rest of us. Anyone know when the next iceage starts?
