All this talk about wheelies and the "Lord of Wheelies" himself has not responded to a single thread. Guess he's still trying to get that Yamidog to stop wiggling.

Allright Allright - You all wanna dance I
can tell.... Actually I have been just a wee
bit busy with an array of work and personal
things. However I changed the tire on the
R1 last night (myself again.. again..).
I am going to test ride it and see if my
problem goes away as soon as it stops
raining.!!

Interesting point to make by the way... It's
amazing how easy it is to change a tire when
you know the tricks.. It becomes SOOO easy.

Chris :p :cool: :p

P.S. Hopefully I can get ISIS to record some
stuff for me (and you guys) and I will find a
way to post a link to it. I've been asking
to get this stuff on video for ever! :D

Kyle - GRrrrrrr! :D :D

Green Ninja - Nope duct tape - the #1 winner
failed two. What did win was a 15 inch
brand new adjustable wrench. Fixxed it.

Changing tires - I will paste this in from
an email that I already sent b/c I'm lazy:

1.) Remove the rim
2.) Let all air out of tire
3.) Use a C clamp and a rag (to protect rim)
and compress the tire off the bead of the
rim.
4.) Use tire irons to remove old tire.
5.) Spray new tire w/ Lube (I use WD40)
6.) Insert tire onto rim..1 side of tire
7.) Begin to work tire on rim with tire
irons.. Use 1 tire iron to hold tire inside
of rim while working the tire
onto the rim with the other
8.) (Critical for ease of job) Make sure
that the side of the tire you are working
onto the rim is lying in the grove
of the rim and not on the edge of the
seating area. If you leave the tire on the
seating area it will be impossible to
get the last little bit of the tire on.
9.) Bounce tire on the ground to get bead of
tire on seating area of rim.
10.) (I have a big compressor) Fill using
125psi until it begins to seat..
11.) Over pressurize tire until it 'pops'
into place.. IE tire even on rim.
DEPRESSURIZE and set to cold pressure.
Balancing is another story - I don't have
the weights to do it so I pay $5 to get it
done. Though, I foresee doing that in the
future too. Well worth the time and the
$30 for the irons. You will save $100s
every season.
