That's what i was told too but it seems a little sketch to me... is ok to put it there?? There is no chance the bike slipping off?

What are you guys going to do on the road if you get a flat and you have no way to remove the rear tire? Not trying to be rude but it seems if you aren't prepared to pull your rear wheel on the side of the road you should be going tubeless so the flat can just be plugged.

well i was asking this in order to be prepared for the event that happens. My next big purchase is luggage and a center stand. I am certainly not afraid to get my hands dirty, i just want to know what to expect before i get into this. I prefer tubes anyway. I just have never gotten a flat on my bike! been riding 6 years and i guess lucky enough to never have this happen!

+1

It fits under your seat if you want it to, and the rear axle wrench is standard in the Triumph Tool Kit. If you're off road, and have a little tool kit, with that, you're all set. Just wedge a rock under the front tire so it doesn't spin around.

It works so well, I use it in the garage.

You are. In almost 40 years of riding I've never had a flat in the field, dirt or street. Oh wait, one time on the hiway with a tubeless, just plugged it.

That said I carry irons, tools, have a center and a endurostand, 12v pump, tube, and patches. For just in case.
And I change all my own tires so there's no fear. I have latex gloves and a mini WD too.

woohoo! i thought i was just the odd man out here by never getting a flat!

I was thinking of doing that as well just in case... have you tried the CO2 cartridges instead..? How is changing the rear tire... i was thinking of changing the flat myself but i was offered a change for $20 and since i really don't want to be without a bike for three till i have time to change it, i am just going to go with that. thinking of just practicing one weekend so i know how to do it...
