Post Tyre changing stands
http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/MOTORCYCLE-DIRT-BIKE-MX-OFF-ROAD-TIRE-CHANGER-CHANGING-STAND-TOOL-/360434123402?pt=Motorcycles_Parts_Accessories&hash=item53eb8c428a#ht_3101

Anyone know where I can get one of these for a reasonable price without having to pay a squillion dollars for postage?
Father in law said he could make one, but don't think he'll get around to it anytime in the near future.

Thought it would be easier with one of those. dontknow
Looking at getting a few tyres at a time, cheaper on the long run, but gotta fit them myself then.
As it is, I take the bike to the local tyres for bikes guy just down the road. Costs more that way though.

Sit it on top of your car or 4wd spare wheel, you only need a recess for the sprocket to drop in so you don't bend it.

I just use my steel frame /wooden top saw horses and it works a treat. Not the cheap blue bunnings ones, the 25mm RHS framed ones. Tyre doesnt slide on the timber and its the perfect height.


Got a couple of old saw horses, all wood, but would do the job I think. Good Idea getting it off the ground, too. icon_thumright
Now just need the $ for tyres crybaby2
