I have seen that video, and there is no way I could have done it on the RT for the rear PR4...

That's how we mounted the Harleys with 26" front tires. So easy.

I gave it a go on my RT rear last summer. I got it off but it was a real job & not as easy as it was on bikes I've owned with taller side profile.
No way I could have gotten the new tire on. Needless to say I won't be doing that again.
I have my own tire changer but wanted to see if the zip tie would be OK for roadside fix.

Re: Zip-Tie method for Removing & Remounting Tires

I worry that a zip tie might damage the inside rim edges of a new tire that I would be putting on the bike. The zip ties are skinny and have kinda sharp edges with a serrated surface.

Someday I hope to make one of these:
