    Mounting motorcycle tires video

    3 Comments by Richard230 Published on 05-17-18 05:04 PM
    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:

    You know, it seemed even easier in the second video.

    Here is a video that I like showing an easy way to install tube-type tires using nothing but tire mounting spoons. I particularly like the way the presenter installs the tube in the new tire and fits the valve through the wheel rim. Also his system of balancing the wheel after installing the tire without needing a balance stand is interesting:

    'At's a good vid for tube type tires. I did lots of RB2 Contis on the /6, /7 BMWs. Avon SMII tires for the sidecar were the easiest. Very soft sidewalls. Could almost do the task all by hand. BMW tool kit irons were a bit short and the real longs ones I found made short work of most tires. Only had a couple tires that I took to the shop because I was having no luck without pinching the tube.
