Achievable Dream: Part 5 - Tire Changing!
On a long-distance motorcycle trip, you WILL find THAT nail, usually in the most inconvenient time and place.
When you're venturing off the beaten path, you can't just call your friendly automobile association! Fear no more - Grant will demystify the black art of Tire Changing and Repair in this DVD full of expert tips and information to help you STAY on the road!
Grant's tire-changing demonstrations are always well-attended and much appreciated by motorcycle travellers at HU Meetings worldwide. This DVD was filmed at a demonstration to an HU Meeting in Spain, and on the road in a remote mountain pass in Switzerland.
This 1.5 hour DVD answers all your questions, for both tube and tubeless tires:
- What tools?
Getting it Off
- Pulling the wheel off
- Breaking the bead
- Removing the tire
- What's in the valley
Plugs and Patches - which types and how to use

- Mounting the tire
- Seating the bead
- Tire pressure
- Tightening the front axle
