anyone good at changing tubes?

finally got my tube(s) in for the DR650. bought 2 just in case.

anyone have experience installing them? EBR in seabrook was the cheapest i found to do it for me at 35$, but i am broke as a joke, and would like to get it done asap.


^^ like that says, im broke for the moment, but wouldnt mind buying a 6-12 pack in the near future for help.

It's not hard if you've got some decent size tire irons.
You can get a nice set for less than what you will pay them to change it for you.

Heres a good thread on how to change tubes/tires out on a dual sport/dirt bike..

http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=50717

I'd loan you my levers, but I'm way up here on the north side of houston.

get some tire irons and some tire lube, like tom said it'll still be cheaper than paying someone to do it. then you have tools to do them yourself from now on.

If you end up doing it yourself... I'd highly recommend getting 3 long tire irons. It can be done with 2, but having a 3rd one makes life so much easier.
