You may be able to do it but it has been my experience that tubless tire beads fit tighter than the older tube types did. They have to seal.
Generally if you remove the wheel and take it with the new tire to any Jap bike shop with a machine they will do it for $20-$40 but call around.
Me personally I have a mechanical bead breaker, Harbor Freight which I have used many times and it makes the job pretty easy. Wouldn't think of trying without it.
Just took mine off and put on a Cobra 250 the old school way. Just make sure you tape up your tools so you don't scratch up your paint. Don't ask me how I know. Check some you tube videos for some pointers. I did and it helped alot.
Done it both ways, and now, I just pay a local tire shop the 20 bucks and be done. I have wrestled with a 240, and it is tough. Bump that - remove the wheel, roll it to a shop, roll home. Nothing particularly manly about scratching the crap out of a good wheel!!!!!
I'm going to keep this short..... I'm looking at legend shocks
I ride solo all the time...
Should I go with the revo which are just spring height adjustment
The revo A that is the same but also has the dampening adjustment knob.
Are they worth the extra 200???? For just a solo rider...
Hey guys i am about to pull the trigger in the Avon Cobra Chrome i just want to know if it'd be better to get the 250 or the 260? if one of you have used the avon cobra chrome 250 or 260 which one gives better cornering or performance or what you like better, thanks for any input , plus they...
So I noticed the steering became notchy and I figured the head bearings are shot. I took the triple tree apart and surprise, surprise the neck was almost dry and head had some grease on the bearings.... do you think I should just re-grease or replace?
