The rope and pipe trick is to wrap a rope around the circumference of the tire and use a piece of pipe and twist the rope to tighten it to force the sides of the tire onto the bead, then you use air to finish seating it.
Works great on riding lawn mowers and older ATVs with the bigger tires.
I have always used a ratchet strap....same diff.
Never tried the Starting Fluid method.

You guys have a whole thread to yourselves for this... or you can call him, PM him, etc.

I don't support him or what he did, but we shouldn't spring this onto other threads, some of which might be from new members and might get too annoyed by this.

1985 VN700 unknown mileage (over 33K)

AGM Battery
Iridium spark plugs
NGK wires and caps

I agree somewhat, but also feel that new members are at this point most at risk! More than likely he will disapear and come back as some one else yet again. He is now PMing people wanting parts! Just trying to not only get my funds and others, but to keep ANYONE else from falling prey to this SCUM.

...see what I mean ???....I think any new member will already see all the threads and comments that exist...no reason to dirty up every thread with this mess...

Now..."Back to the Darkside" part deux....I DID notice, that when I had a car tire on my FLH/FX meld, I was able to roll up to stop signs, and rarely needed to put my foot down....*weg*....drives the cops crazy !!! They keep tryin to get ya for a "rolling stop" violation, lol.

Back to the original topic. I put a car tire on my Valykrie, made a big difference in handling and torque. The Valk is a big and heavy bike compared to the VN750. Keep us posted on your resutls. I'm tempted to join you.
