Make sure you can get motorcycle adaptors for it.

Even though it holds the OD of the rim and not the ID? I'm not sure I follow what adapter is needed.

Oh SWEET Kit, thanks for the post!

Know anyone who has used one of these? Quality?
No never used one of those.

But that kind is a kinda semi automatic changer, a tire iron used along with the guide bar helps a lot.

As for quality, have no idea. I would hunt for customer reviews on it, and see if the good ones outweigh the bad ones.

Always going to be bad ones, just like tire reviews......:eek:4:

Make sure you pick up a cheap rim to practice on. Those are good fr bending rims as well as braking a few fingers while learning unless you are above the curve.

I personally use a NO-Mar Tire Changer and it is impossible to bend a rim or scratch if used properly. Plus they offer a lifetime warranty on all the parts that contact your rim during the change. At least with a NO-Mar you can feel exactly how much pressure is being applied to your rim through out the entire change.
