Got centerpunched on the Buell Dec 21st. It's totalled, and I'm wheelchair bound for life.



Oh well, it was fun while it lasted...going to spinal cord rehab hopefully next month, after the shoulder heals up.



Be carefull out there. Maybe I'll get a go cart...

I have the exact setup others here mention.



1. Harbor freight POS tire changer.

2. marc parnes balancer (very nice).

3. nomar bar.



Here are my comments.

a. You MUST have the HF tire changer bolted to the ground. Bolting it to a couple pieces of wood (as i first tried) doesn't cut it. the thing will move too much. the tire changer must be planted.



b. the nomar bar is GREAT for unmounting a tire. however, i had a rather hard time mounting the tire using the nomar bar. The videos make it look much easier than I found it. The bar wants to twist (along its axis) when you are turning it to get the bead over the lip of the wheel. That is why they include another bar that bolts onto the no mar bar to give you more leverage.



c. the HF bead breaker is good, but be careful not to damage your brake rotors!!!!!



d. use plenty of lube.



e. i ended up having to use tire spoons to get the last set of tires on. The HF tire changer made it a little bit easier, though.



f. the HF changer won't fit certain BMW spoked wheels (as my buddy found out).

I bought the HF tire changer with the motorcycle attachment. POS!!!

I can have 5 tires changed at my local dealer service dept. for the same cost. Now this hunk of junk takes up space in my garage. Anyone want it? You can have it.

Vinny, I'd be willing to give it a try. More than happy to pay for your handling time and shipping. $?

I don't want Microsoft designing the next plane I fly on. Or, the second. Maybe the third.
