    Mounting tires at home

    I've thought about trying to mount my own MC tires for awhile. I've looked at the No-Mar equipment and mojolever but both mount tools are over $100. I bought an ATV almost 2 years ago and decided it was time to upgrade the tires. I belong to another forum and the guys posted up some great deals...

    Ohlins shock mounting question

    Well, I ended up buying a pair of Ohlins shocks for my vmax... They are damn expensive (and yellow...), but since I've had my bike for almost 19 years now and that it looks like I will be buried with her... :big laugh: , I told myself that it's just something that I won't have to buy again...

    Reasonably priced tire mounting and balancing

    I've been searching for a shop that doesn't charge and arm and a leg for this service. Bay4 motorsports in Tewksbury MA was by far the highest. Was quoted 1 1/2 hours at $78 an hour for each. Several others ranged from $54-$90 each. I called Naults Windham Honda in southern NH and was told $35...

    Mounting and Balancing Tire

    I have Dunlop's on my 1994 and plan on replacing them with Shinko's shortly. While I can find great deals online for the tires it seems that getting them mounted and balances will cost a good bit since I'm not getting the tires from a dealer. Just wondering what everybody else does concerning...

    Silicone lube for tire mounting?

    Well, I used a paper towel lightly wetted with silicone spray lube to apply silicone to the new rear tire bead and the rim. Slipped the first bead on the rim totaly by hand! Slipped the last bead on 3/4 way by hand and very little persuasion to get the rest with tire irons. Easiest tire mount...

    Newer Mofset R/R mounting on '85-'92 Vmax

    What did you do? Description and pictures if you have them. I've seen Ryan's mount under the seat where the coils used to be. Has anyone used a mounting plate and bolted it in the stock location?

    Mounting a 200/50R18 rear tire on a Gen1

    I bought some new rims with tires. The front is a 130/60R18 and the rear is a 200/50R18. John Furbur told me that they'll bolt right on with minimal modification. Here's a thread to show the progress as I try to get things right. First, the rims and tires. I think they look pretty nice...

    I was cleaning my engine block when I came across this pin hole that resides in the dowel hole of the water pump mounting surface. I tried to blow it with air but it seems blocked, I also tried to see where it leads and I could not figure it out. Vmaxers and Vmax gurus any idea? :worthy:
