Changed tires the old fashion way

You know how glad I am that, that's over with ! Took them off, got a third party to break the bead, cut the old tire off with a cut off wheel, on a grinder. Then put the new 1s on by hand !

Fixing to go roll it over to 20k miles, tonight. I bought it with 11,600, at the beginning of Feb. this year.

For real. Anybody that has the means to own a motorcycle in addition to a car, should be able to spring an extra $20 to get some tires mounted

I've always changed tires by hand. But then again, I used to vendor at the MX tracks and got pretty handy with a set of irons.

Even now on my 636, I use a jack, the adjustable part of a jackstand, and the trailerhitch of a vehicle to break the beads, then tear them off with irons. It's really not that bad.
