Yeah, I think $60 bucks with the wheels off definitely is a kinda bad price. I paid $90 with the wheels on after having ordered the tires online. Doin' 'em yourself would probably be a great money saver though.

A few of the guys had them and recommended them, and for $128 I'd be saving money in no time.....iIf I can get the hang of it. Rumor has it that static balanced wheels are more accurately balanced than spin balanced ones anyhow.

We still need a couple more guys so go to www.yzf-r1forum.com sign up, check out the group buy conference, the details are there. I believe it's for the breaker and static balancer. If we get 20 orders, it's $128per person, unless you want longer irons and plastic ( not rubber) rim protectors. then it's a few buks moe.OmniGLH said:
Got a link for this? I'd like to get in on that....
Yeah but I'm not a mod here and I got the $23 per tire and I bought my own tires online.GsxrTony said:
Yeah but thats cause your a Mod on the "best site in the World"
And I'll bet that's about what it's worth- this is exactly the type of tool you can't judge the quality of by an online picture/catalog- it must be evaluated in person. I'd also try to get feedback from other buyers first and check their return policy before taking the chance.Harbor Freight has a manual car tire changer and the motorcycle wheel attachment for about $75 for both and $15 to ship it.
