but I did have this in the back of my mind. The Kumho squeeked a couple times then slid right in...aired up and all. No fuss no muss. Bike was on a jack and rear panel was off.

I've never used liquid anything nor let the air pressure down to install my Pirelli. With the layover method, I find that you can just push it right in with a knee. And then you can go test it that much quicker without washing the soap off or airing up the tire.

It would appear that the protrusion on the left of the wheel well is not the same for all wings. I even had trouble mounting a Cobra Avon 180/60 16 tire in mine. Getting it past the left side protrusion took a bit of effort.

If I got real aggressive I could probably karate kick the tire in with the bike on it's side but it wouldn't feel to good. :oops: Wax paper made it oh so easy.
