Took longer than expected, but successfully mounted and balanced the D606 rear tire on my DR650 today. First time ever attempting, so... That OEM deathwing was a total bitch to get off. Motion Pro bead breaker irons not even close. The DR650 rears are notorious to beak the bead, so I ordered the Best Rest Bead BreakR tool and got it just in time. Leverage in a pouch! Overpriced but very effective (priceless in the backcountry). Will carry that onboard now always with my spare tubes and tools. Used the Marc Parnes tire balance tool and slick reusable spoke weights from No Mar. Cleaned, lubed and adjusted chain. Applied anti seize to the axle threads and torqued down to 75% of spec value. Then checked I can actually back the nut off with the small box wrench I carry. Absolutely no way I could’ve broken that nut free in the field without my shop tools. Factory gorilla installed. Will tackle the front tomorrow and look forward to checking out my new knobs!! Slowly prepping bike for the Idaho BDR next summer. All new Cogent suspension this winter! Edit: Front D606 now mounted with minimal cussing. These tires make the bike sit noticeably taller. Works for me!
