Need Tire Changing Assistance in the NOLA Area

I need to change one or both tires on my K1200LT. Does anyone in the area (say, within 3 hours) of New Orleans have the means to do this? I'm referring to private individuals on this forum, or shops that would let me bring my own tires. I'd be happy to pay you for your time and skills; just trying to save some $$ on the total expense.

Howard,

I wish you were closer. I have a tire machine and balancer and would be happy to help. Right now I am in North Carolina but will be back on Tuesday.

Me too, Ron. At that distance it probably doesn't pay for me to do it. I'll keep your offer in mind.

Thank you.

Thanks, Dan. I'll keep this in mind, too. Houston is about 5 hours each way; at some point it's going to cost more in gas than I'd save by not taking it to the dealer. Let me think about this for awhile.

There is a Cycle Gear at 2926 Johnston St. In Lafayette. Don't know specifically if that Cycle Gear shop handles 'brought in' tires, Howard - butt many do. They're open Mon-Thu 10am 'til 7pm. 337-264-0352.

Thanks, Dick. I'll call them tomorrow.

For the Texas guys who offered assistance, the reason I was looking for something relatively close is that I'll have to trailer the bike. My truck gets about 17 mpg (with trailer and load) on the highway, and traveling 5-10 hours each way would easily eat up any savings by not going to the dealer in Baton Rouge. Now, if the tire wasn't damaged and I was on the bike... that would be a different story.

<edit> These guys are open 7 days a week AND there is one in Baton Rouge - even closer I'll be calling them when they open to see what it will cost to replace one or both tires, and if I can bring my own in. Thanks again! And oh yeh - the store in Baton Rouge is close to Cabela's and Bass Pro Shops. I could make a day of this.

I've never been to a Cycle Gear store. They don't have any locations in Ohio. From their online description this could be a very interesting trip.

Just make sure that they mount the tires in the correct rotation.

Re: Need Tire Changing Assistance in the NOLA Area

I called Cycle Gear. They only change tires when you bring the wheel to them. They will mount a tire I bring in, for $10 extra. They will "get close" to online pricing. Their normal mount/balance fee is $20.

I would take my wheel to them but the problem is the LT's trailer hitch. I need either a scissor jack to raise the back wheel off the ground (higher than the center stand will, by itself) OR a lift with a drop tail. Having done the jack routine last time on my bike I can tell you the lift is much easier, and safer.

So - I'll hold out to see if someone in the area has a jack or a lift and the means to help with this tire change. If not, I'll make an appt. with BMW Baton Rouge.

Howard, what hitch do you have? Mine is relatively easy to swing up out of the way. It is a Dauntless.

Hi Robert,

I have the Dauntless hitch, too. Last time I changed tires I did it on the garage floor. It was a PITA because I had to loosen the hitch to swing it up, as you mention, but I also had to put a screw jack under the frame to get the rear tire up enough so it would clear. By that point it got to be real tippy -- not a good time.

Maybe I wasn't doing something right. My lift has a drop tail and it's a piece of cake with that, of course. I didn't use the lift last time because it was occupied and I was too lazy to make it available for use. Lesson learned!

So there's that, plus I don't have the collection of tools that I have at home - just a limited set of sockets (smallish) and some crescent wrenches.

Re: Need Tire Changing Assistance in the NOLA Area

Howard, have you thought about riding the bike onto some pieces of 2" thick timber, then put it on centrestand also on 2" timber? Once up, you remove the rear timber... would that give you enough space?

That could work, although it resembles the scenario I had last fall when I did the tire change on the floor. The bike is unsteady... you apply extra muscle to tighten the lug nuts... over she goes. Not that it fell over last time. The jack I used last time had it up in the air much more than 2", and if I don't loosen and swing the hitch out of the way (I don't have the tools here that I need to do that), I need more clearance. I'll think about that some more. Maybe I can find an uneven place in the parking garage where there is a break in the concrete, to provide more clearance.

Howard, when I pulled my rear wheel I did it on the center stand on the shop floor and had no issues removing the wheel after loosening and swinging the hitch up. No blocks no jacks, nothing extra. I really don't understand what the problem could be.

+1 on what Robert said. I had a Dauntless on my LT also and did it like that. You do have to tilt the wheel to get it around the drive but it will come out. If it is too close, a piece of 3/8 plywood under the center stand should give you added clearance and not make the bike unstable.

There are 2 things: (1) Last time I removed the rear wheel I decided not to loosen the Dauntless hitch and swing it up out of the way. I left the hitch in place and worked around it. I know partially moving the hitch as you describe works, and I have done that before, but I thought it was a pain to do because there aren't many "extra" threads on the hitch bolts at the top of the rear subframe; I was afraid of running out of threads, having a nut come off, and then having to re-do that. I thought the initial hitch installation at that location was harder than it should have been and didn't want to redo it.

(2) I don't have the tools with me that I need to loosen the hitch, even if I wanted to. So, I have to go down the path of working with everything as it is. I also don't have a torque wrench with me, or the 17mm (19mm?) socket to remove the rear wheel lug nuts.

I'm going home this weekend and I can bring the tools I need back with me to NOLA. Then, I can remove the rear wheel as you describe - including loosening the hitch - and get 'r done.

Both tires have 11,600 miles on them so I'll probably end up ordering both and taking the wheels and new tires to the nearest Cycle Gear shop (thanks, Dick) for replacement. Originally, I was looking for someone in the area with the tools and a lift (or jack) to make it easy. There's no rush in getting this done, so this could be the plan. I may also be taking it over to Dan's place in Houston and doing it there.

Thanks.

Re: Need Tire Changing Assistance in the NOLA Area

OK, we have a plan in place. Thanks to those who replied with tips and offers of assistance.

Major pay-it-forward points to Dan Martin on this one. Dan is going to be in NOLA this weekend so he is going to stop here on Saturday (and I won't even be here) to put his spare wheels and tires on my LT and take my wheels/tires back home with him. I have ordered a pair of tires to be delivered to his house. Next week he will mount the new tires on my wheels and I'll ride over on Saturday 9/7 where we will swap wheels again.

Thanks, Dan.

Re: Need Tire Changing Assistance in the NOLA Area

Now that is service ! Stevie needs to remember this for CCR next year.

Howard....I didn't like how short those bolts were either...so I got some about 1/4 inch longer at my local screw place and replaced them. I know exactly what you mean about worrying if they would come out when all you wanted to do was loosen them. They could be very hard to restart if that got misaligned.

A big ATABOY to Dan !

Ron, You don't happen to remember what size they were? I'd like to take a couple with me
just in case.
Kathy & I are celebrating 34 years together Sunday.

IF this gets done Sat, how about a RTE in Lake Charles or Lafayette the 7th or 8th
and we can swap wheels then?

Major pay-it-forward points to Dan Martin on this one. Dan is going to be in NOLA this weekend so he is going to stop here on Saturday (and I won't even be here) to put his spare wheels and tires on my LT and take my wheels/tires back home with him. I have ordered a pair of tires to be delivered to his house. Next week he will mount the new tires on my wheels and I'll ride over on Saturday 9/7 where we will swap wheels again.

Thanks, Dan.
Dan is THE man.
Congrats to your anniversary.

It was a PITA because I had to loosen the hitch to swing it up, as you mention, but I also had to put a screw jack under the frame to get the rear tire up enough so it would clear. By that point it got to be real tippy -- not a good time.

Maybe I wasn't doing something right. My lift has a drop tail and it's a piece of cake with that, of course. I didn't use the lift last time because it was occupied and I was too lazy to make it available for use. Lesson learned!

So there's that, plus I don't have the collection of tools that I have at home - just a limited set of sockets (smallish) and some crescent wrenches.
I have NEVER removed my Dauntless hitch when changing the rear tire, even when doing it on the ground. If you put a piece of 2x4 under the center stand (get someone to help you as you may have to help the big girl get up there), you should be able to slide the rear wheel out. I have also done this with a 1x4, but you have to really work the tire out of there.

I hear you. That's pretty much the consensus for LTs with the Dauntless hitch. I've been spoiled by having a lift with a drop tail section; it's very easy to do, that way. I had a difficult experience last time I changed the rear tire, when I didn't use the lift. Anyway, this is good info and I've filed it away for future reference. Thanks.

Dan if I still had my LT I would go out and measure them. I just took one out and carried it to East Texas Fasteners and told them I needed some just like them but about 1/4 inch longer.
The ones they sold me looked just like the ones that came with the hitch...same socket head metric.

Dan was in New Orleans 2 weekends ago, as expected. He removed my rear wheel and put on his wheel with his tire. I'm going to his house this Friday after work; I'll spend the night, and on Saturday morning we'll put my rear wheel put back on, with a new tire that I had shipped to his house. How's that for service?!

Thanks again, Dan.

Re: Need Tire Changing Assistance in the NOLA Area

All is well. I spent the night at Dan's house last night; first thing this morning we swapped wheels/tires, giving Dan back his spare wheel/tire combo, and reinstalling my wheel with a new tire on it. All is well with the world now. I put about 600 miles on the tire today because I went to the Hearne, TX RTE and then back to NOLA.

And Dan is storing my new front tire for when that time comes.

Hey, Howard - I vote for putting Dan at the top of the *Pass it forward* list. Any seconds?? And he's already on the *That's what we do here* list.
I'm proud to make his acquaintance and glad he's a member on the forums.

He's certainly deserving, Dick.

Dan and I actually discussed the "pay it forward" concept while standing in his driveway yesterday. I think this is what makes this site so special. There are many people like this, and there are some who are always on the top of such a list. I think something we can all do to keep it going is contribute as best we can. For some, that means doing the technical "heavy lifting" - rebuilding final drives, diagnosing obscure electrical or mechanical issues, laying hands on for repairs. Others can contribute in other ways, too. There's lots to be done...

Re: Need Tire Changing Assistance in the NOLA Area

Howard, glad to have been of assistance to you. Enjoyed chatting with you.

We need a RTE in Lake Charles or Lafayette.

We are sitting in Seattle waiting on the cruise ship. It is 65 outside and
jackets/sweaters everywhere. Sooooooo comfy.

Re: Need Tire Changing Assistance in the NOLA Area

I didn't think we'd be hearing from you for a couple of weeks, Dan. Enjoy that Alaska vacation!
