Well hear is a tip for every one just don't let the wife ketch you lol. but get some of your wifes best dish soap in a sray bottle with some water spay the bead down real good befor airing it up beads sould pop with no more than 35 t0 40 psi it also aids in mounting the tire on the rim most the time you will not even need to spoon first side on. Ride safe

WD-40 works well too. I just put a new Kenda 270 on the back.

Armorall is slippery as ice, just make sure you clean the sidewalls real good after you get the tire mounted and ready.

Looking to get back into KLR's sometime soon.
