Wrench Help/Tire Stand
Ok, I blew a tire.
I found a new one, and someone who is willing to mount/balance it if I can take my old tire to them. That's great for me.

Does anyone in the Everett/Lynnwood/MLT area have the tools, experience, and time to help me remove the rear tire from my bike, and then put it back on when it's changed out? Does anyone have a stand I can borrow long enough to change my tire out? If you're willing to help, send me a PM and let me know. Let me know what it'll cost for some one to show some "good samaritan-ship"

Thanks

I'd help if I was closer as well.

Are you gonna be running two different tires on the bike?

i can help with everything except the rear stand. i'm in mill creek if you want some help. I have a floor jack that *might* work to support your bike while you take the rear tire off.

Just for a little while. I'm signing up for a track day in august, and I'll put a new store bought set of matched tires on my bike then. But for now, I'm just trying to change the blown tire so i can still ride while i'm getting my car fixed.

I'm not sure Andy. I'm really new to bikes. I know it's a '00 R6. But that's all I know. The tire is a 180/55zr17 if that helps any.

You'll get them back soon as I'm done changing the tire. Will your stands work for a '00 R6?

Do you have experience with a tape measure or rule? If I knew I could tell you if I could offer you meaningful help beyond just a stand.

The rear is adjustable to accept anything with spools. The front lifts at the triple with a pin. I don't know if it's the right size for your bike or not, but you shouldn't need it if you're doing the rear tire anyways. If you pick up the rear stand you could take it to Grant's for some tire changing magic

according to the specs, the rear axel nut is 32mm or 1 1/4 in socket.

I'm not doing anything I couldn't take a break from. I'm down by Northgate and should have everything needed. It would be nice to know the axle nut size. Do you have spools?

I think my cell # is in my profile. If not PM me.

Cheers

I want to say a BIG thanks to Ebesel and ApexHack for helping me. Apexhack came and removed the tire, took me to get a new one, and then put the new one back on. Ebesel took off the tire, remounted the new tire, balanced the new tire, and send me on my way. My bike is running well. I'm really grateful for all your guys help.

Also I want to thank AndyCapp and Grantizzle for being willing to help me out even though other arrangments came through. Thanks for volunteering guys.

Thanks to everyone who helped me and was willing to help me. I appreciate all of it.

Dizzy
