Just ordered some new tires online and was looking for someone to help and teach me how to mount them. I'll take care of the beer and pizza! I'm in Greeley,Co if there is anyone in the area that is willing I would be grateful.

If you bring the wheels and tires down to my place in Aurora and buy me lunch We can mount those tires at my place. What type of bike and what tires are you wanting to mount.

That is very kind. I'm trying to figure out a DIY bike lift so that I can get both tires off. I'm back on duty for the next week so this won't happen for a couple of weeks. I'll drop you a PM and see if we can set something up.

Thanks again.

Do you have a center-stand on your bike. Do you have a scissor jack or small floor jack? And a jack stand? You can remove the wheels with those items. Don't need to lift the bike off the floor. Remove rear wheel first. place jack under engine. Support bike, remove front wheel axle, jack up bike just enough for front wheel to clear front fender. put front axle back into place on the forks and lower front end down onto jack-stand. Both wheels removed and bike firmly supported. Replace wheels in the reverse order.

Here is a picture of my old ST1300. Same concept.

Mine is a Cycle Hill model Made by NO Mar Best Tire Changer for Motorcycles.Made in USA.

I bought mine used from a fellow ST1300 rider. It is the less expensive model. Because I am space challenged I needed one that would fold up for storage and mount into into my vehicle's receiver hitch. Not sure if they offer this feature any more. It works for me and in the last two years that I have owned it, it has paid for it's self.

Here are a couple of pictures to help visualize the changer. I just did my daughters tires this past week.
