no mar tire changer.

I just ordered a no-mar tire changer. They are very busy (which is good news) and had a back log through their powder coater. So I will not see the unit until next monday.

I ended up getting the classic HD with a few extra goodies.



By the way. While searching I found this unit for sale in Cali.

I dont know this person or have any affiliation.

If you are like me, it will take some time to master it, but I love mine. Oh, that reminds me, I need to buy more tires.

&#x1f44d; Thumbs up! I'm about this close -><- on getting one for myself. Please give us a review when you try it out. I'm getting tired of crawling on the floor changing tires.

My nomar is excellent. But I only change tires once a year, and after the tire change, I think how I could have made it easier if only I did xxxxx. The next year I have forgotten xxxxx, and I realize it afterward. So to get real good at it, change tires for your friends! You'll have more beer than you ever need!!

mobilemike, be looking at metal valve stems if you ever decide to get tire pressure monitors. When the tire is off is when to make the switch, obviously.

I have the Cycle Hill, made by NoMar but cheaper, comes with the optional wheel clamps that don't come with the NoMar. Both are quite good.

I ordered the optional clamps. So I have both sets now.

I am looking to buy one of these; "No-Mar CH200-0390510 CH200 Tire Changer Kit by No-Mar" or "Cycle Hill" or any other similar but heavy duty tire changer.
Anybody know of a place or dealer in Canada?

Amazon Canada currently out of stock.

Pic of my Cycle Hill... needs to be a little taller, so made a baltic birch plywood base screwed to plywood, can easily remove it... 2" square tubing and clamps can turn it into a hitch mount in short order. Sliding support for wheel to clear brake rotors, and moves out of the way for tar changin'.

I donít find mine needs to be higher but I keep a 4x4 wood block handy to kick under the wheel when busting the bead to keep rotor off the floor.

On GL1200 and certain other wheels I find need of a 2x4 to lift the wheel at the bead breaker. For some reason the lever pushed down to the far side of wheel isnít enough to break the bead so I lift the wheel to get more displacement.

I have the nomar hd Classic that I bought a couple of years ago after the local dealer raised their rates ($300 to change & balance a set of tires) best money I ever spent ! But like Jim says above it can be quite a workout as I also tend to forget the little things that make it easier between use’s. Usually just try to “bull” through it. Quite easy if done right.

Worst tires to change with it ? My buddies 2015 bmw r1200rs,, no reliefs in the rims just straight across from bead to bead, not sure I’ll do those again, what a b***h !
