Exclamation ANYWHERE TO MOUNT TIRES ON MY 50????

I just bought some Pirelli Street Tires for the 50, and was wondering if anyone knew of a place/person around the Northside that could mount them for me? Besides Cycle Gear, they said $60 plus I have to bring them in Off the Bike and so on and so on.....Anybody?!?!?!

attempting a tube or tire swap on a 10" rim is like sucking a golf ball through a garden hose! I have done it 6 times and popped 6 tubes. It is because the tire is so small there is no flex at all.I take mine to Honda of Houston and they charge $25 per tire, saves lots of frustration and time for sure.

What the are you talking about dude??? Have you ever changed one of those little 10 inch tires??


Those are the hardest tires to change on almost ANY dirt bike.. I'd go so far as to say those the THE hardest tire to change on ANY motorcycle out there.



Anyways, I gladly take mine off my bike and let my buddies as Bob Lunsord's northwest honda do them. Cycle gear will be your best best if you want them done on sunday or monday since most other places are closed.

If you decide to do them yourself, make sure you have some tire irons (don't use screwdrivers haha), extra tubes, patience and beer to cool off afterwards. Practice makes perfect but those are a pain.
