Uhhhhhhhhh not everyone is the weight of a NFL lineman.........not to say you are.

Heh, not far off right now, but even my light riding buddies just step on it to pop the bead. Just lay the wheel on some grass or something that won't damage the rim, put your instep next to the rim, then step up with your weight on your heal.

How will that be more effective than the weight of a truck?

Yeah I step on the rim for most anything but not that 4" rear on the big Kato.

Apparently you've never tried it on these wheels.
I'm 240 lbs and have changed more dirt bike and street bike tires than I care to recall, all with little to no problem. Pressing on the bead, standing on it, 2x4 under the truck on rare occasions. This wheel is much different.

I've used the sidestand on my scorpions and tkc, but i had the entire bike balanced on the stand plus my bodyweight, and all of this on a concrete floor. much easier to go to the local garage and break it with the machine then drag it back home and finish it

I know this is going to sound a little strange, but how about using 2 pieces of 2x4??

I know it sounds a little redneck, but here's a link that might convince you... And it works great!!

Local hardware store... Buy a C clamp 5" for front or 8" for rear... Cheap, works wonders and you can leave it on while dismounting the tire to keep the tire in the center of the rim. KISS principle, no need for anything fancy!

Already tried that- didn't work.



And, speaking of redneck, here is what I finally thought of yesterday that did work: I put jackstands under the tongue of my travel trailer, so I could get the tire under the regular tongue jack. The first side pressed off handily. The second side took a few tries, but it too came off without much fuss.

Every tire thread someone posts this, and I wonder what they do when the tire is flat 100 miles from any road, much less a "local garage".

Never understood this.

No more K60s for me.

Q~


glad i had the sidestand relocator fitted
took some finesse, had to keep spinning the wheel & working the bead off slowly with the sidestand....mounted a brand new K60 up up with dishsoap!

I picked up a huge nail going 80mph in my rear tire. By the time I got off the road one bead was popped off, but the other was still stuck on. I weigh 280lbs and I couldn't get that bitch to bust loose. I guess I'm just a wee little guy.

Now this is a good idea for home. Can't believe I didn't think of it as I have a power jack on the trailer
Now, the trailer is only 6x14 enclosed, but if hooked up to the truck would have more than enough weight. I'll try it next time.

You think Karoos and K60's are bad?! Try an EO-9 Dakar

I found myself in need of a tire change away from a garage in central OZ. Even with the help of a mate for balance, and having the ENTIRE 950 on the sidestand (front and back wheel off the ground!), the bead would not break. Yes, it was deflated. Ended up riding it into the garage - flat. Bead still didn't break. Sidewall was so stiff, it honestly still felt like it was full of air.

Reckon next time I go scrub, I'll just run one without a tube.
