    OK then... does anyone have a trick for seating the tire bead on a supermoto rim? This thing is/was a pig to change, I can't seat the bead on the front wheel... how much air can I put in these tires without it blowing up in my face? It's got 80 lb in it now... I give up...

  10. 09 Buell 1125r Crank Locking Tool

    Hi, My Buell 1125r is due for a valve adjustment and I need the crankshaft locking tool to get it done. Is there anyone out there that could sell or rent out theirs? If someone could recommend a shop that would have one and doesn't charge an arm and a leg that would work too.
