i bought a compressor yesterday

i could have gone to the gas station - if i was certain that only the pressure was the problem. the rim has a ding in it and the tires came from a dodgy source, so i wanted a pro to take a look before the whole thing blew up in my face.

Hey Ned, nice write up.

This morning I r&r'd the rear MT 21 on my 625, first time in at least 25 years. Like techie, I just needed to see if I could do it and your article gave me the incentive so I found my old tire irons and gave it a go. Your write up and pictures are quite clear and the whole process went reasonably well. Here are a couple observations from this mornings fun. Also like Techie it was the back side that was difficult possibly because a tire that is beefy enough to take the weight and power of a 625 is pretty stiff.

1.0 Tire irons. I used one like the ones you have and the other is about as long as my hand. I hold with the short one and pry with the long one. For the back side I think two long ones ( like yours ) would be much easier.

2.0 Lube. I wimped out and lubed it when the going got tough. This made it alot easier.

3.0 When doing the last 1/4 on the back side I found that wiggling the iron ( w/ the lube ) helped pop the lip over the rim.

Will I do another one? Sure. Is it easy? No.

I also gave this tire changing a try after seeing this thread and it went pretty well. It took me a couple hours in total but most of that time was spent wrestling to break the bead on the rear. I took the stock Trail Wings off and put a MT21 on the front and a Kenda 270 on the rear. Big Props to Neduro for convincing so many of us to put the checkbook away and get the tools out...we all owe you some beers at the very least. Thanks for the great thread!!

Was doing a bit of that myself the other morning...



Luckily, there was a flat-topped stump nearby...

Drif10 speedy tire installation video, here. This version was squished when it went to mpg1.
