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.
Wow! When I think of all the money collectively I've spent with NoMar, this would have been cheaper! and easier. Nice changer, my wife, if she witnessed me changing tires, she would have persised for me to sell the motorcycle! Nice wife you have there! LOL

It has been a while but think I promised to post pictures of my homemade "No Marring" Tire Changing Station once it was completed. Up until now I've been too busy riding to post much.

I got the design of the Tire Change Station from Dave Anderson off his No-Scuff Tire Tool website. I used a 14" car rim as I feared that the 13" rim he used may not have been large enough to clear the rotors on the FJR's front wheel. I also used a 3/4" threaded rod instead of the 5/8" rod he used, to give it more heft when using the No-Scuff Tire Tool. I remove a drawer from my workbench when I want to use it - a nice temporary installation - and it is so nice to be off my knees! I have changed both tires on the FJR and can report that my station works. Total cost was about $25CAD for some hardware. The rest of the parts (lumber, hardware, car rim, hose) was stuff I had around my garage or was obtained elsewhere at no cost. Needless to say, there will be no purchase of an expensive (for Canadians) No-Mar Tire Station in my future.

I think the photo of my bead breaker is self explanatory. It is permanently bolted to the wall.

My balancer is also homemade and is permanently bolted to a small roll-away cabinet, in which I store my tire change hand tools and wheel weights, etc. Some of the tools on display are: rim saver, curved tire iron, No-Mar spoon bar, N-Mar Yellow Thing, No-Scuff Tire Tool, and a cheap trigger-type tire inflator that I was able to remove the core from so it will inflate a tire from which the valve core has also been removed (makes setting the bead much easier). Lastly not shown, I always use Ruglyde from NAPA to lubricate the tires.

Cheers.

Haynes
