I found this on another site and thought I would share, man, the guy makes it look way too easy(but, I have a feeling that is all he does ALL day and I too, could make it look that easy if that is all I did all day :P )

Anyway, take what ya can from it:

I just used that exact vid to remove the front a few minutes ago. Haven't attempted to put the new ones on yet because I've decided to pick up some new tubes first, and clean everything up a bit. Lots of dirt in there.

But it was pretty easy to remove following his direction. I do wish I'd picked up spoons that size though instead of the giant ones I got. They are almost too big to work with.

That is very timely Michelle! I need to put some new tires on the next few weeks.

As long as TransWorldMX keeps this on their site this needs to be a stickie.

I like the way it just falls on and off! Shoot, takes me 15 min just to get the valve through the rim hole! He must have fingers of steel. Must.

BTW - don't ever spill baby powder on the garage floor. Slippery as owl snot and darn near impossible to get the slick stuff off the floor. Like walking on ball bearings!

Good read, MB

Yes, it was very timely for me also, I almost thought about attempting it myself after watching the videos, then I had flash backs of tools flying across the garage and cuss words flying, kids crying from being afraid of Mom(j/k), then I came to my senses and spent the $30 that it cost me to have 2 tires mounted! :lol:

I don't think I have ever had brand spankin' new front and rear tires on at the same time! I won't know how to ride, oh yeah, new rear brake pads too!

Holy smokes, look out. :D

I changed KTMLees this weekend and I watched that video before doing them. It actually wasnt too bad. He is right, technique makes all the difference in the world.

My local shop wants to charge $25 per tire, so $50 is a little steep for me to pay. I am going to buy be a tire changing stand and get rid of the bucket.

That handy dandy little "bead holder" he uses makes the job 100% easier. Getting the new tire back on is usually my biggest problem. Taking the old off is easy. Holding the bead so it doesn't slip as you go around the tire is the key. I also helps to have it at the height he does and not on the ground.

if anyone is interested I've got a MRP tire changing stand for sale and I'd be glad to provide instruction on how to use it and change tires quickly. I can do a front and rear in about 20 minutes if I have the wheels off the bike already (depending upon brand, Maxxis add 20 minutes. ;))

he's right though it's all about technique. I did one of my rear street tires last night and it took me a while. Diablo strada on an FJR rear wheel (shaft drive). I'd say it took me about an hour to put it on. I did a front and rear slick on my road racing bike a few weekends ago and it took me about a hour to do both after I figured out some tricks on doing the street tires. But for dirt it's helpful. it's funny how everyone has their own way of doing things though. I do my valves different than doug but they both work.

What do you use to break the bead on your street tires?

sorry about that got busy at work...
$125 for the stand.

I have a bead breaker that I got used from a guy. I think it's from here:

http://www.tireqwik.com/tireqwik/index.html

it's not the greatest but it works pretty well. the FJR wheel was a pretty big pain. enough to make me start to think about a coats for street tires. :)

There is a home-made bead breaker in this one.

Thats a great vid. I change tires for a summer job and on weekends. I ushally do about 5 sets of motercycle tires a mounth. I use a sludge hamer for bead breaking and a gold bar to get the tire off.
