I can do it in Camrose Alberta Canada if any one is in the area and needs it done have a nomar changer I use for freinds and family also have trailer tools and lift if your in a bind
Thank you so much! I may have to make that run and not a big deal. Will come on the bike and get a run in of the CT home.Well, I am more than 100 miles from you, but your welcome to come use my machine to change your tire. Roughly 160 miles from you.
LAF,Well got my tire mounted today. Mounted in one place for 10 bucks, and balanced at another for 10 bucks.
Here is the two together.
Here is the work by Jim for the spacer and the cut down lugs.
And on the bike.
Will take a bit of getting used to. I got about 100 miles in today. Nothing technical but a few twisties. Tomorrow I will be running a bit harder so I will see.
Over all no big deal just a bit more effort to get it to lean over but other than that no issues.
It fell into the bead when getting changed with no effort. I had cleaned the bead really well and I said something about the TPS and not sloping it with a lot of lube. He listened and it went right on in the tire shop.
It took a lot of weight to balance but the guys told me it would and it did. Pretty smooth running down the road but I know it is going to take a bit more effort to run technical roads but I think it will be fine.
So far no surprises no rubs, and the ride is not affected in any way except it is a different feeling
Why the spacer?
The bike in the pic is not a GL1800. Spacer is probably needed to keep the tire from rubbing in that application.LAF,
What is the purpose of the spacer? Why is a spacer being used?
