Tire Changing In Your Own Garage!

It seems that with the easy consumption of tires on my Hayabusa that every time I turn around I am faced with the challenge of having someone else mount (and scratch my wheels and) my tires.

I have to rely on 'their' skills and hope that when recieve my hoops back and when I push the speed in confidence that the work that 'they' did, they did right! :super:

Well, I am not one to rely on others' faith and promises. I have decided to do something about it. :super:

I spotted this on another site and thought I would share it here with a little more elaboration.

Sounds cool, but carefully look at the picture of the rim where the plastic things are laying there. Dahm, that rim looks beat to poop!

I know, Doc. Pretty bad. I know mine would not look like that.

You know, I looked around that link for those particular rim protectors,, I couldn't find anything. I'll take some time and browse the net later, see what I come up with.

I'll post up when I find something.
