I mount and balance my own tires. I have three Motion Pro tire irons, a 13" car wheel with some split 1/2 fuel line for padding around the rim and a bottle jack. I made a wheel balancer out of some skate board wheel but I just like to fuk with stuff. There is an online tutorial floating around out there in cyber space. I looked at it before I got started to get some ideas.
It ain't hard. It helps to watch some else do it first using very basic tool. I helps to have a couple of pair of hands.
The local dealers won't even mount tire purchased elsewhere so it made my decision easy. I put around 20,000 miles a year on the all the bike combined so tires go fast.
