Postby Sarasota_Steve » Sun Jul 22, 2018 2:31 pm

Is anybody familiar with this tyre changer?

Can't get that to work, let's try this.

I've been doing some research and as much ad I'd like to purchase one that gets mounted to the garage floor I don't have the space, for something that gets used a few times a year.

This is an italian guy and the product seems to be EasyTyre (Spelled funny). But I've not been able to find it online. I really like the mounting head. It would make life so much easier.

Buy a NoMar Ive one mounted in a convenient space and still out of the way. They really take up less space than you think and are the cat's meow for everything minus stiff carcass dual sport tyres. Ive wrestled my own changes for far to long, after the plunge, why I waited so long..

NoMar is exactly what I can't affort to have installed in my garage, due to lack of space.

I have 2 bikes + Scooter at the moment + woodworking shop + washer/dyer + Storage shelving systems .... and it's only a 2 car garage. I have 3 buddies with NoMars but they are approximately 40 minutes away from me. Just trying to change my own tyres at home, not having to sacrifice floor space for it. That's all.

The head on this Easy Tyre changer is superior than the NoMar mount/dismount stick I think. Watch the video. It's damn good. Ah, and another great portable tyre changer I saw is this Max2h.com product.

Both of the set-ups shown work well, shame the Italian one was filmed by his mate on a mobile phone, the film quality for the German item is much better.

I know what you mean about lack of space Steve, we too have a two-car garage housing six bikes, a hydraulic work bench (that has to accommodate one bike permanently), a wall-mounted work bench and three towers of Dexion racking to house all the toolboxes, fluids, generator, boxes of spares, spare wheels, Jerry cans (5!) and so on... If I wanted to change a tyre I'd have to put the bike in question on the hydraulic work bench (which would necessitate a few minutes of Bike Tetris first, and move at least two bikes out of the garage to free up the necessary floor space.. That said, being able to change my own tyres would save so much time and fuel from running around to get them done by a professional that it's something worth thinking about. Before I do any searching of the websites in question, does anyone know of any prices for these things at all?

Something else to invest in would be a balancing rig (plus a load of rim weights), and an adapter for the 1290's rear wheel :roll:
Wheelies - they ARE big, and they ARE clever....

Have your tyres delivered to one of the three buddies and you have accomplished all your needs. Sounds like a new building is in your future.

You can mount and dismount it in less than 5 mins. Disassembled doesn't take down much space.

You only need 4 big bolts drilled at the floor to get the tyre changer well fixed.

I can take q couple of photos if you want to see how i've it in my garaje :wink:

So I finally bit the bullet and purchased a tyre changer.

I went with the OlmaxMotors changer. Made by a company in Poland. http://olmaxmotors.pl/index.php/angebote/reifenmontiergeraet-tire-changer

It took a month to get it from Poland due to the box sitting in customs in NY for 3 weeks.

I used it for the first time this past week to change the rear. It's as easy as it shows on their YouTube Videos.



and



The one thing I used, that was a mistake on my part, was liquid tyre lube instead of tyre paste. It dripped on the garage floor and made the changer slip all over the floor. I should've used it on my driveway that has better concrete/grip.

Made my own static tyre balancer and it worked very well. The rear needed only 1/4oz.

I just ordered tyre paste and brush; it should be here in a couple of days (Thanks Amazon Prime) and I'll change the front tyre.

Highly recommend!

It ended up costing me $300 including $93 for shipping. It's a lot cheaper if you are in EU instead of across the pond.

Cheers,
Ride Hard,
