Yesterday, new bike, CB300F, needed new rear tire, 9300 miles---already have new rear tire in stock...of course wanted to do myself.
As bike has no centerstand, decided to do it on floor, using floor jack on rear swing arm pivot---stupid idea. bike fell off, no damage other than hand guard plastic.
Wife and her friend helped me put it on my lift....where it should have been in first place. Lift much better and safer place to work from. Bike tied down.
Anyway rear wheel is not "quick detach"---alone maybe impossible to do on road! Even putting is back on/together on lift=pain in butt. Makers need to make these things easier to use and to fix in remote places.
So OEM tire IRC, came off rim easy,new tire Kenda, very hard sidewall needed muscle, my case supplied by long truck tire iron from India. About 15 years ago when Chin Shin were will available in US---they were easy on/easy off and lasted long time---rear,11,000 miles on my K75 BMW---and cheap.
So by doing my self, found/did other things on bike that dealer would not have done.
Maybe new rear brake pads soon, O-ring chain starting to kink, sprockets in fine condition. I don't like O-ring chains---when I replace will be with cheap Japanese roller chain, with master link. This bike I have been using ATF as lube---internal lube sealed inside of chain going bye bye.
New Tire balanced by "Ride On", pressure held overnite, direction arrow pointing in right direction.
So in spite of lots of muscle use, frustration getting spacers right----I will probably do a tire/wheel again---exercise good for me. On lift.
But flat tire underway will probably have to call for help. Bikes without centerstands suck!
