If so, what tools or machinery do you use?? Steep learning curve?? I'm sick and tired of paying the stealership and the associated waiting/trailering. Thanks.
zx10ragentorange said:I too am looking into getting something to do it myself as the shop I bring them to charges $30 for both wheels off the bike. Not to bad but when I am going through around 20 sets+ a year it adds up.
So how exactly does he do it and with what???busaforhire said:yes is does....$600 at least... :mrgreen: you could pay for a tire changer and a balancer in no time.. I have a friend with Marvics and he spooned on his own wheels because no local shops want to take the risk with his wheels.. he said they really aren't too bad. The rubber is softer and more pliable then you may think
I think I will have to order a few of them. Is it hard with just two of them? Should I get 3???Ryan Schnitz said:You need these - http://secure.cartsvr.net/catalogs/catalog.asp?prodid=328326&showprevnext=1
I use 3 of 'em... Others can do it with two.
Cool, thanks for the info. Now i just need to find the rest of the setup....Ryan Schnitz said:I like 3... Keep one to hold the tire in place on the rim and the othe two to work the rest of it on...
I use windex to put them on... some soap and water works well too...
Never use WD-40 or anything with oil or silicone in it..
actually I think I may.:lol: Hey BD if I gets me a good deal do you want in on it???:crackup: I still haven't signed up for the program so let me read the "rules and guidelines" so I don't give racers a bad name.:wink:Big Daddy said:JJ call ur buddy @ LP :wink:
That looks very manageable. What are you using for balancing??treyzx10r said:got this and it works ok
