If you have done dirt bike tires, these will be a piece of cake.



Here's a good Tire changing guide Except I use WD40 for the tire lube.

Changing tires isn't all that hard. Might want to put something between the rim and tire irons to protect the rim. Manual suggests old leather glove, and it worked for me.

I'm keepin' all the left over parts. I'm gonna use 'em to build another bike!

Easy?

Is it really that easy to change a tire? I wasn't even going to try. I figured I'd just pay someone to do it. How much should that cost for just the rear tire? I just got my temporary tags today and thought I'd ride to a dealership and have them do it.
