Moto Guzzi 1400 Tour Tire Change

<< < (2/2)

Clifton:
Nice detailed write up. I just changed the original tires at 3,900 miles on my 2015 California Custom, went with Avons. While I was at it changed the gearbox, FD, brake and clutch fluids as well. All ready for nice weather!

Scout63:
Great write up and pictures.  Itís so hard to get around to changing tires, but fun to do once I start.

The No-Mar tire changer sits inside the walkout basement.  The tires spend some time in the sunshine, on an asphalt driveway - before being introduced to Mr. tire changer..  Remember - a warm tire, is a happy tire.

Sometimes it's too cold outside, and so ya gotta get out "the box".  Add a $9.99 hair dryer.  You could use your wife's hair dryer, but I don't recommend it.  Set the tire up off of the work bench on some little wood blocks, and cover with the custom tire warming box.

A thermometer is handy, or you could just wait until the smell of burning rubber wafts itself up into the living room.    :boozing:









 You could also use a shop light with an incandescent bulb - it just takes longer, and you'll need a blanket.









Oh, and you're gonna need one of these.  She's pretty handy.
