Bad assumption:



11" from center means a max of 22" rim.

the sliding arms don't look like they move all the way out. In fact, the pin needs to be on the outside of the arm to prevent it from moving outwards. Estimating length of the square tube on the base of the arm, effective max distance from the center would be about 8'', not 11'', making diameter around 16.

So drill a hole through the wheel holders about 1/2" from the end and get 22" wheels!

I had a No Mar, but changing the rear tire became too difficult, sold it and bought this, very heavy duty and works like a charm. same as the Greg Smith but a different color.

Just ended up building my own tire changer using the instructions for the no-skuff tool.

http://no-scufftiretool.com/Tiresetup.html

Works pretty good. Changed the BMW tires over the weekend, and everything went very well. Kinda bumbed that the front tire of my WR250R will not fit over the 3/4" threaded rod, but that tire was never much of an issue and rear still works. Yeah, i know, I should have pictures, but I don't. Mine looks like his in the link above.

+1 on the No-scuff. I use mine with a Moose tire stand which I've got bolted to a 2 ft square piece of plywood, which in turn gets bolted to the floor with anchor bolts when I need to use it.



I still need to build a bead breaker, but the No-scuff is the real deal.

Nooooo! As a fellow Newnan-ite, I've been looking for one for far longer. Did you list it on AccessCoweta instead of Craigslist or something? Tell me who you sold it to so I can track them down and-er... make them sell it to me! ;)

If anyone is looking for a Harbor Freight tire changing machine, I've got one with several useful modifications for sale right now. I'm in Lenexa, KS and local pick up would be best. I do have plans to head south to Texas probably in the next couple of weeks, so I could deliver it somewhere along I-35.

PM me if interested. http://advrider.com/forums/showpost....postcount=3317

Just seeing this. I just sold it by word of mouth to a friend in Griffin. I had lots of people bugging me for it.

Use coupon codes 28925822, 74311964 on the 2 items to get like 20 bucks off. I just ordered both parts. Hopefully that guy still sells the Mojo Bar or some similar no mar tire lever.

Just for the heck of it, I was trying this out. I got the 28925822 to work which appears to be $10.75 off the main part, but the 74311964 isn't working? Sure that one is correct?

Edit: Appears it works by itself? So I guess you'd have to do two different orders?

Yeah, I actually created 2 separate orders. I know its an extra 6.99 shipping but you are actually saving more.'

Side note: all of the no-mar like tools seem to cost the same $90-$125, No-Mar Demount/Mount, Mojo Bar and No-Scuff. Any body have a preference or should I just go with whatever is available.
