there's a thread on here from 2005 by a member named Ownage and it shows how to change sportbike tires using a homemade bead breaker. . .search and you shall find(I would look for it, but I'm lazy).

Have you tried breaking a bead on anything, car or bike?

Goodluck with that. I use machines at work.

I swapped race tires on my MX quads many times, never used a machine. I've changed tires on the supermoto, mini-supermoto, and R6 without ever using a machine.

Ive tried to break a bead on a 4wheeler once
And now I have a shop press

A big C-Clamp works just fine to break the beads on my SV650 tires.

Balancing: I stick the small half of a pool cue through the bearings, suspend the wheel between two bar stools, wait for the heavy side to fall down, tape on some weight, spin the tire, repeat until it's balanced. It ain't rocket science.

I use them. I put 4 track days on a set of PP 2CT and then did a 3,500 miles ride over the holidays to California. I figure I can get another 2,000 miles out of the tires. The wear is pretty even on them.

I use this to break the bead:

http://www.pitposse.com/pobecr.html

You don't have to be a strongman to use it.

I've been meaning to do a right up of my tire procedure, it truly is a poor man's guide.

About the above idea with the straps, I wonder if that will work with sport bike tires. I know on my r6 with a set of Pilot Powers, the bead on the rear is practically set when you pull the tire into the rim. Hence, with the strap method, will one be able to pull the last strap out? In general, I think by the time you put the straps on I can already have my tire in the rim.

More power to you for doing that; I'll stick to my machines. I imagine some may get upset if their wheels get scratched, chipped etc.
