CNC, milling machine & lathe... To dream..
So I changed my second tire with this equipment last night.
First was the rear on my R1.
Did the rear on the LT last night.
Both went very well.
Found I needed a couple more mods for the LT wheel.
The lug nut holes in the wheel are about 13mm (1/2").
The center post that comes with the HF Motorcycle Tire Changer Attachment is about 1". Much too large.
I just happened to have a 1/2 copper ground rod, 30" in length, to use as a new center post.
Went back to Lowes for some parts to make it work.
(see pics below)
The spacers are needed to take up the slop on the smaller center post.
After the beads are broke and the wheel is mounted on the stand, I used a couple quick clamps squeeze the tire. Makes it easier to install the mojo bar and makes the first pry over much easier.
Until I fabricate some block's like JZ's, I used the plastic off an anti-freeze jug to prevent rim marring.
