How To Change A Motorcycle Tyre Yourself. My Triumph Tiger 1050 needed new tyres. I took the plunge and ordered online from BlackCircles.com in the UK, fitted and balanced them myself.
I made a separate video of the wheel balancing process which can be found here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_8nghfByRww
Please accept my apologies for the quality of the video as some of the scenes are very dark due to my inattention to the camera later in the day and also, the ultimate of sins - the battery went flat whilst recording the tyre removal and then, I totally failed to record the new tyre being fitted. I can only assume the camera was on pause because the tyre
replacement scene was completely missing when I went to edit the footage . . . duh!!!!!
I almost considered scrapping the video but I felt the use of duct tape rather than cable ties is of significant benefit when carrying out this job and is worth "putting out there" for the benefit of others.
I hope at lease someone finds this video instructive and informative
