    Mounting rear sportbike tire by hand.

    Have mounted numbers of dirt bike tires. Sport bike fronts are easy.

    The rear is a pain and I am unable to complete the job.

    Anyone in the Gresham area got a few minutes to show me the secret to levering the new tire on the rim?

    M y wife tried to help holding one lever while I leapfrogged the others.......this was not successful. I pressed one bead down to the center and worked the tire on the opposite edge. No luck on the few remaining inches.

    I stopped as I did not want to rip the bead.

    PS Used copious quantites of dish soap and wd40.

    Thanks
