The bead will more or less seat itself. The foam inserts are pretty well over-sized compared to the tire. You also slather so much silicone lube on the things that it actually makes the tire pop up pretty easy.

If it doesn't seat, you can give the tire a bit of a kick on the ground, or you can just mount the wheel\tire back on the bike and it will usually seat once ridden.

Some guys also install a car style schrader valve onto the bike and will pump air in. It won't seal at all, but if the bead isn't seat, that trick will usually get it.

The foam inserts look like a blast to install and remove. Once in you are set but man it doesn't look like a fun task forcing everything together or apart for that matter. The videos I've seen show the tech hammering tire spoons in to break the bead...

Am I up a creek without a paddle here, or what?

Thinking I'll fill out all the paperwork online, and send in a check & such to the SOS. Worst case is, check comes back. Best case is that plates\title show up. Thoughts?

AG, based on the pictures, let me see if I understand what's going on; you purchased a bike from a dealer that never titled the bike but simply re-assigned it to you, right (so far)? Or, was it never re-assigned to you? If it was never re-assigned, you may be screwed.

If re-assigned to you, you will need a bill of sale on the dealer's letterhead. I just went thru this. I did a straight up trade (no cash) and had the title re-assigned to me. DMV would not accept a handwritten bill of sale, it had to be on letterhead and show the purchase 'price' ($0.00). The bill of sale does not have to be original, it can be a fax (if that helps).

I also see a lien on the MSO. Were you provided with a lien release? If so, the DMV will want that, if not, the lien will come thru on your title (not good). I think only the person that borrowed money, for the vehicle loan, can request a lien release (at least the lien holder is local).

I bought the bike from the Original Owner. He is from MN where he never had to title the bike. The MSO has original owners info on it. I have a Bill of Sale from Original Owner. I have the Original Owners receipt from when he purchased the bike from the dealer. The dealer is in MN as well. The lein thing is a concern, though based on what the Original Owners receipt looks like, it looks like that lein is related to the dealer and not the original owner.

I'll call the dealer and see if I can get anything sorted out.

It's all in the technique. Heck, I've changed car tires with motorcycle tire spoons. Easy enough since you don't have tubes to fuss with.
