First time breaking the bead was a struggle.

Second time (after a leaking tube) was a whole lot easier!

Must be darn hard on the trail!

The Harbor Fright changer/bead breaker at least worked after a struggle.

I think filing the rim would be a good idea, it would just take a tad.

If it hadn't been for DSM8 we'd still be trying!

Lol...

Dammit, he's on to me...

I just got off the phone with my new friend Karl at Procycle, got a new rear disc, pads, and a caliper rebuild kit on its way to me. Figured it was better to get the stuff shipped to me today and replace as needed rather than mess around calling and driving all over town in this heat wave. Gonna cost a little bit but I'll end up with new rear brakes and a few spare parts.

Cheaper and easier than messing around trying to clean the pad residue off of the rotor in between work and the other projects I have to finish before I leave next week.

First order of business when I get home is to replace that rear rim. I might try filing off the safety bead and keeping the old one as a spare too.

Onward...

The biggest challenge was getting the drunk Englishman (???) (Yes James I am talking about you) to stop loosening the clamps every time we told him to tighten them.

We had to remount to the rim to the changer several times due to that, note to self. Don't let James near tools if the job started at the beer tap before moving on to the garage.

Nice of you guys to help a new guy.

Got a buddy with a couple of those DR 17's, will make sure he's aware of the issue. I did a rear for him before DV noobs and don't recall any issues. Maybe his weren't glued on there.



EDIT: now that I think about it, I did have to employ my bead breaker - a wedge of oak and a 10lb balpeen hammer. BFH, right??

I just put a Shinko 705 on the rear wheel of my KLR. It took me probably an hour to break the bead to get the old one off. I ended up placing the end of a pointed nose shovel right on the rubber as close to the rim as I could and jumping on it to get the bead to break. Fricken headache. Glad you were able to get yours done and good luck with the rear brake issue.

Well we WERE having a PARTY with two other long distance riders we are hosting. The party started at 4pm, THEN...these guys show up to change a tire 4 or 5 beers in........righty tighty...loosey goosey...something like that...I think the Harbor Fright changer is not do (hic) user friendly.
