Yes, let's do it. I've been meaning to post about this... you know how it goes.

Should we start a thread for collaboration, figure out what all needs to be in there, and then make a clean thread for the hall of wisdom? Or...

Kirkmoon- I remember that you had trouble with some aspect of this. Can you elaborate and maybe we can improve the instructions somehow?

Ned

I know - I will try and live up to my offer...

I think that this thread is as good as any, any doc or pdf for the almighty hall can come from the work here. You can edit your previous posts as Kirkmoon et al funnel the wisdom to ya. I will offer myself as a sacrifice - a virginal guinea pig - to the last draft.

See I have never changed my own MC tires (bicycle yes, but they are easy). My stock Saharas are about 1-2K away from doom and I have another pair of Saharas coming from a friend who sold his DS (got em for the price he paid for knobbies - $105 bucks! ). And they will need to be put on right? What better test of a tire changing spec than me?

I will dig around for that thread with creeper's stuff and we can ask him for some direction on his input. There is some great stuff on Jerome's website that we can ask for too I suppose. He posted it around here somewhere.

That's a nice write up Ned.

I used to use the tire on the tire technique until I bought an $80 dollar hitch mounted tire changer that makes the job even easier. No more bending over no more using my knees. It was money well spent. IMO

Oh and baby powder is my lube of choice. And 756's No wonder you change tire so often.
IRC VE33/35's last way longer and work better for what I do out here. IMO (again)

Those things chunk for me- The knobs get ripped off whole. Sometimes they last an hour or two...

We should start a dirt tire thread. I've been experimenting a lot lately. Been pretty happy with the Kenda Millville, although their hard traction isn't the greatest and they also chunk. But they are cheap.

I've got a set of S12's for the race this weekend... never run them before, looking forward to giving them a try.

MP: As for updating this thread, I think the key is focusing on getting the second side of the tire off the rim. When my tools were stolen, I attemped this without the motion pro tire irons shown in this write up, and it was a total b*tch (tire was a Kenda Millville, which fit really tight anyway). Would love to hear other's opinions- if this process leaves any questions in your mind, please post them here or PM Meat Popsicle or myself. Our goal is to make a hall of wisdom worthy tire changing guide...

I ran the M12's for a while and loved them when they were new. The problem was that they wore too fast in the center so with them being a wide tire they felt square after 2 rides.
A lot of people like em, I'm not a fan.



I'm looking at that D/S tire thread too because I got the "Z" plated and I'm going to be needing a set to run in some of the events I hope to do.

Hey Neduro, I haven't used your valuable info yet, but will in the future.

I just wanted to say a big thank you for taking the time to put all this together. It is those with experience sharing their collected wisdom with us newbies that helps make this place awesome!

You Rock.

Yes, great thread. I just fixed the tube on the Maclaren



Wondered what Mrs. Pop was doin with the thing to get two holes in the tube but then saw this:


can't read that? allow me: Cheng Shin Tire...

Luckily for me it didn't take any specialized knowlegde that Ned layed out here; that will come soon when I do my own tires on the KTM

I think we should start a "What offroad tire do you use for your pimped out baby stroller" thread.
