Here is a link to a useful video showing how to mount motorcycle tires the easy way. If you mount your own tires, this will be an interesting video to watch:

Here is a link to a video that you might find interesting. While it is not something that I would do, I know that other motorcycle owners who have standard spoked wheels would like to convert them to hold air so that a tubeless tire can be mounted on a wheel with spokes.

Hi Forum

I wish to change my of road tyres to road tyres (Michelin Akee 3 have been highly recommended for a multitude of performances in various conditions).

However, one dealer said I can't change to tubeless!?!

Is it possible (and safe) to change the tyres to tubeless road tyres?....I'm in the UK.

many thanks

Here is an article published by Motorcycle.com regarding balancing tires:

And speaking of balancing tires: I was looking at the new BMW models on my dealer's showroom floor last weekend and noticed, that while the front wheels of the bikes had wheel weights, none of the rear wheels had balancing weights on them as they come from the factory. I wonder what is up with that? Bean counters again?

Yesterday I helped my son-in-law replace the front tire on his 100K+ mile 1986 Honda VFR700FII. I thought you might be interested in seeing his homemade front wheel stand. I thought it was kind of creative and a lot cheaper than buying any steel manufactured stand. I was impressed how well it worked. We got the wheel removed, the tire replaced and the wheel reinstalled without any drama. (He was using a universal rear wheel stand to support the rear of the bike.)

For those whose TPM sensors have stopped working due to age (flat battery), the following threads/links might be useful if you are prepared to have a go at replacing the batteries yourself:

In summary, the batteries can be replaced by digging out the pot material that seals them in and...

Having discovered wear in the outer ball race bearing of the rear axle I ordered a used complete assembly for ú200 and the video shows the replacement job.
Run time is under 30mins and the job took about 35mins (I cut a few mins of looking for tools!)
