Well here was the deal. The race dunlop I had on my GSXR 1000 was starting to go on my ABC ride 2 weeks ago and I though I might be able to use it through the Deal Gap trip. Well after the first day I knew it wouldn't work as I was sliding everytime I would power out of a corner. It was a 2 day of our week long trip and I couldn't wait till I could get into the shop as they where busy. So what to do. Thak god I brought another tire, I cut up a rubbermaid container top and used it as wheel savers. Then had 3 long screw drivers, honda polish and another bike so I can use the kick stand to break the bead. Just a fyi these are $2000 rims and I don't want to scratch them up but I don't want to miss out on riding and have no tire changing equipment or balancer.

Uncle Steve gets creative and in 15 mins has a new dunlop mounted. Who need a $4k tire changer with all the bells and whistles. I had about $20 in equipment and took care of it on the cheap with no damage to anyone LOL of my rim or tire.


Finally a good use of an RC51!





Custom rim savers. I sell these for cheap LOL




With a sh!t load of honda polish and screwdrivers we got eh old tire off. Not to get the new one on














A little help from some friends










Looking good so far lets clean it up and balance it!

Not true. I have done it about 10 times at Jennigs with no scratches by hand with a bead breaker and spoons and rim savers. I did front and rear tires inbetween session and did not miss a session. So lets see 2 rims taken off the bike two old tires taken off rims and new rubber put on and balance and mounted back on the bike in 40 min. I would say I am just as quick as a shop and some shops scratch ur shit up. LOL

So what to do now???? we don't have a fancy balancer or even a nice $100 static balancer. well I have the next best thing and it works perfect and was also checked at a shop afterwards just to prove it worked





Perfectly balanced




My job is done in 15 min with no scratches or tools besides 3 screwdrivers..

This type of work only gets done outside a vacation home on a mountain in western NC, where the nearby horse farmer gives you a stern look, shakes his finger at you and chastises you in general for going through the neighborhood too fast/loud.

If you ain't with us, then it's just bad news.
