Blocks are good, I now use three 12" woodworking clamps to squish the tire.

I tried my woodworking clamps also but found them awkward

I have had my NoMar for several years and changed lots of tires with it, including pickup truck and trailer tires. Definitely takes a bit to get the technique down. The online videos helped a lot. I have also been using the Mojolever for mounting and the Nomar lever for unmounting.

As others have said, lubrication is a must. I have also invested in the yellow thing and the rim clamps to aid the process. I'm pretty competent now, but there was a learning curve.
I got fed up with paying dipshits to gouge my wheels so I'm DIY all the way.

On my old DIY changer I used a clamp, and then kept the tire squished with several U-shaped plywood squares. But I got really tired of all that and finally built something better. Wrote it up for one of the other FJR places. https://www.fjrforum.com/topic/17670...omment-1422161 Since then I've made some mods to accommodate ATV tires. Can't do the single position thing with those though because the beads are so tough to break.

The best changer IMHO I saw was made for a short time by a company near Dallas, TX. It incorporated many of your concepts and was stand mounted. After researching, I finally decided to get one and they were out of business, rather bummed out I procrastinated, and ended up with the Cycle Hill when they went on sale. Kudos on your design.

I did five tires on Saturday. Two sets of Bridgestones; one set on a friend's BMW R1200R and one on his R1200RT, and a pusher tire on my Ural. Spousal Unit observed that mounting one of the rear tires for the BMWs (same size as an FJR) was difficult and suggested that I needed a pneumatic changer. Of course, I said my No Mar was sufficient. Well, she persisted all weekend so today I relented and ordered a Derek Weaver changer. Sometimes you just need to take one for the team. My No Mar has served me well for going on ten years, but it will be seeking a new home soon.

With a pneumatic tire changer Kevin's opinion of mounting a Dunlop RS3's may change from the "Devil's Seed" to something else!

If my wife suggested I buy a nice pneumatic changer... I'd probably be looking for the alien overlords that switched out her body and how they planned to exploit me.
