I found the following in the HOW.

Maybe the change came with the black wheels. Mine are silver. I have the earliest model, the one with the bluish silver paint.
Black bike, black wheels here.

I have done this with stubborn sportbike wheels. Couldn't believe that the steel bar used as a lever bent
Sure did lift up the front of the truck nicely

I WILL get this off. As noted above, I may remount it and ride around the block to see if that helps.

I fixed 3 flats on the side of the road last summer on my 2011 using the kickstand to break the bead. I carry a small bottle of windex and spray the bead (Standing pool of windex) and then start working around the tire with the kickstand and no problem if you're patient, but she has to be good and wet.


That also goes for putting the tire back on..........good and wet. I thought about carrying a tube of KY but was afraid the Queen would find it and "for changing a tire" even to me sounds lame.

Well just did another carpark tyre change - as you when you travel.

Broke the bead without lube using the motion pro tools.

Spooned it back on with some lube and away we are.

If a tire is that hard just trying to break the bead take it the local dealer and have them change the tire.

Problem is, there aren't a lot of dealers on the trails in the mountains

And, since that's where I'm heading next, I thought I might give it another go. I will soak it down and try again tomorrow. Good thing I have that CJ relocator

As I said get the stand in nice and close to the rim. I have had to lean on the seat in the past.

How does one use the sidestand when the bike is balanced with one wheel off?

My guess is they are assuming you are riding with somebody else and are using their bike to break the bead.

Well we got it. Foot of the stand was right at the rim and even with leaning on it after lubing it up, no go.

So, a 16" spoon, 2 8" spoons and a 1' prybar, lots of cursing and near missing with punches to each other's faces, but we got it

Sidestand works fine to break the bead. Though I found out the hard way that it is best practice to use a tie down and secure the centerstand to the front of the skid plate.... when the bike rolled off of the stand and fell on its side I had to leave it down until I got the wheel back on.

Bloody hell, another thread on this? Just stand on the damn thing

I've never had a bead on any bike or tyre that won't pop off if you just stand on the thing with your heal. Tubeless, dirt, whatever.

Are you guys trying for some surgical/clinical perfect bead break?...
