Removing both wheels

Getting new tires, is there a way to remove both tires at the same time so I only have to make one trip to get them mounted?

Thanks

I'm wanting to do the same thing and will be picking up this lift from Harbor Freight this weekend.

That, or put the bike on center stand and remove the rear wheel the usual way. Then put a jack under the engine and lift up the front end and remove the front wheel.

Or a concrete brick with a towel over it...anything to get the front wheed up a few inches.

Be care full you do not have any large cats or kids that may try sitting on the bike after the wheels are off...they can upset the balance and make it fall backward.

Should use a strap around center stand while it's up, as in fergy's spline lube:

and a couple of plastic milk cases underneath for jack stands(I know, ghetto, but it works).
