    but I'm sure he found it cheaper.

    It works fine only thing I'll mod is lengthening the push down so it fully pushes the tyre off the rim like the rabaconda does, but for a 10th of the price.
    Yeah I see what you mean about the push down, could be modded fairly easily I expect

    Luckily Dave has one so I'll nip round there the first time but I will buy one myself at some point, I think his may be similar to yours!

    Don't forget to budget for plenty of levers and lube too!
    I got 5 levers is that enough? Very Happy
    Do I really need a mousse changer or can I just do it on the garage floor with brute force and ignorance? Laughing


    Bit of a pain but yes you can, I remember refitting a popped mousse on my buddy's drz with two 10mm spanners and a ktm spanner on the side of the road, admittedly they were both a bit shagged but I managed to do it lol!
    You could make one with an old steel car wheel weld a plate over the centre and a bit of round bar on it same dia as your spindle and get one long lever for the initial bite and to get it off the rim with a lump hammer and jobs a goodun, best thing about a mousse changer is not chasing the fecking wheel around the garage cheers

    That sounds like the dude's tool kit, knife and a spoon lol!
    I suppose even changing a tubed tyre would be easier on something like that anyway although I've got it down to quite an art now on the floor! Especially since I put my old bedroom carpet down in there Laughing
