As motorcycles become more reliable and maintenance intervals get more spread out, one consumable remains on a fairly frequent interval for motorcycles. Tires have made tremendous advances in the last decade, but they are still the most frequent maintenance items for motorcyclists. With the rates for mounting and balancing tires going through the roof (My local shop charges $60 for a pair of tires with the wheels off the bike.), buying a tire changer makes a lot of sense. I’d been eyeing No-Mar Tire Changers for quite a while before pulling the trigger and installing one in my garage. In less than a month and after changing a dozen tires, we’d have already spent about 35% of the cost of the No-Mar Classic HD Motorcycle Tire Changer at our local motorcycle shop, but what’s most important is how convenient it is having a tire changer in my garage available when I need it. I no longer have to load my wheels into my truck, drive to my local shop, wait an hour (or more) for them to be ready, and finally take them home to reinstall on my bike.
In the bad old days, I used to change my own tires on the floor of my garage. However, I got sick of the bloody knuckles and scratched rims caused by using tire irons to pop street tires off rims. Eventually, I decided that I disliked changing tires so much that it overcame my distaste for the ridiculous cost of having a shop do it. The thing is, I usually love wrenching on my bike. So, it continued to eat at me, ultimately leading me to my search for a tire changer.
