Not very local , Taunton, to you but you are welcome to use my bead breaker, rim savers, levers and air compressor.

I have also available pair of Dunlop D211 endurance triple compound tyres ex-track day front 3 days and the rear 1 day. No chicken strips but the bit you use on the road virtually new. 120 70 17 F & 180 55 17 R. I think I have new bolt in 90 deg valves here as well if you want and definitely new normal short valves.

As I said more than welcome to ride bike and use my tools or bring wheels and tyres if you already have them. I am available most of the time. Not under cover working so if it rains you get wet. :))

Stop being soft, wait until you have to do a k7/k8 gsxr rear. There even worse.

Are there any good links on here showing how to change tubeless tyres?

I've a got a new rear for my DL650 inbound and was going to take the wheel to a shop but I guess they'll be busy this time of year.

I have lots of tyre changing equipment, including a bead breaker that resembles this.

Are tubeless tyres much more tricky that tubed type MX tyres?
