use a spreadsheet or Data base to keep track of all inmates and items ordered and then mail merge the home addresses. It shouldn't take more than a few minutes to print out mailing labels. Once the SS or DB is set up it can be used forever. This shouldn't be a big chore with today's technology and you already have a computer...

LOL, I am the most non-techy guy around, I have no idea how to set up a spreadsheet or do what you're talking about. Or even set up a printer to do mailing labels. I just do it the old fashioned way and write out a list. I do have to put everybody's info into the USPS website anyway to get the labels.

I can't program a GPS either. ;-(

wait a minute! I don't recall you using any spit on the bead. That would help things quite a bit. maybe it ain't so bad a tool. Did you use some soap or KY it up a little?
Yeah, the Pirelli is only a 3 ply, it is a DOT tire, but I didn't lube it ... The tire that is.

Sorry no vids or pics but I used the tool to mount tires on my Tiger 1050 today. Brand new Pilot Road 3's, rear tire size was 180/55 zr17 and there was little to no drama using this tool. I did use tire lube to mount the tires, I easily fit the first bead over the rim using only my hands. The second bead needed the tool of course.

I struggled at first (the pusher bar kept slipping out of the splines whenever I tried to push the sidewall) but I figured out that I needed to put as much of the bead over the rim as possible and then push down the tire opposite the area that remained over the rim to give the tire some slack. I have some NoMar tools to hold the tire down (yellow hand thingie) and then I could use the tool to push the last of the bead over the rim. Took a little bit of force but not near as much as I remember using on my mounting bar that came with my CycleHill tire changer. You do have to be just a bit careful as I think you could scratch the rim with the pusher arm.

Rear wheel axle size on the Tiger was just the right size for the tool with no sleeves, I had to use the included sleeve for the front wheel but it worked really well.

Conclusion: I like this thing better than my mounting bar for getting the last of the bead over the rim, seemed to take much less force to get the job done. Of course you need something to break the beads and remove the old tire before this tool can be used.

You've obviously never changed a MX bike tire before.

690 owners with this tool- I'd like to add this tool to the toolbox, but I keep hearing about these different diameter spacer sleeves.

For the 690's, what size sleeves do I need?

Is it too late to jump in on this second group buy?

safest way is just measure the diameter of your axles, the rod will slip thru your hub / bearings, it doesn't have to be tight but you prolly don't want a lot of slop. The tool itself is 20mm and comes with a sleeve to shim it out to 25mm. Although are will make you any size adapter, the optional ones that he carries are 15 and 17mm. .

is it too late to jump in on this second group buy

prolly won't order until first of FEB so LMK what you need

Am using Heidenau k60's very stiff sidewall hard to get on Klr650.This looks like it could help alot in the field.15 and 17mm adapters are needed i think.

List updated. All PM's replied to (I think).

LMK if I missed you, I got a bunch of emails and PM's last week and wasn't able to keep up. Check the list on page 19 and make sure I've got it right.

I plan to contact Are next week, and confirm pricing and discount. Then I'll be able to give you FF's a pretty close idea of the cost. Then I'll ask you to email me and confirm your order, as well as get me your name and shipping addy. After everybody confirms, I'll place the order and then post up payment info - you'll be able to do PP or mail me a check. Before you know it, you'll be playing with your new tool

Thanks
