I changed out my worn out stock rear tire on my '08 klr at 4088 miles yesterday afternoon. I had weights that attach to the spokes I ordered thru Kawasaki, six bucks a piece and used one 20g weight for balance. I bought one gallon of tire lube at Napa Auto Parts for just under eight bucks. I used two regular tire irons with the ends wrapped with electrical tape. I was bad and used the old tube and a new Pirelli Scorpian A/T tire. Everything went easy except for the last foot of rubber over the rim. For that I laid the tire and rim on a milk crate, pinned it with My knee at the transition of in and out of the rim on one end and used the part of the tire iron that looked like a giant straight blade screwdriver or soldering iron at the other until I had six or eight inches still out . Still holding one side with My knee and the other with My hand I centered the iron on the part that was still out of the rim and pried it in. The whole procedure along with polishing the rim and tire and lubeing the chain took about two and a half hours. I got the tire online from American Motorcycle Tire. Paid 103.00 with the shipping. I think it arrived in three or four days. Have it pretty much scuffed in from a ride in Alpine County near Mesquito Lake late yesterday afternoon. So far the only thing out of place has been one missing and one lost bolt attaching the muffler to the bike frame.
