Hey Dan

Post  Dan Koich on Thu Jan 10, 2013 6:53 pm

I've been looking at their tire changer, but someone in one of the product reviews said I need a motorcycle adapter and the local HF sales guy said he'd never heard of one, and I don't see one in the HF website. I apparently need to send an email to HF tecnical experts in order to inquire. Some say it's junk, others say it needs beefier steel. I'm pretty sure we bent my rotor when we changed my last tire on Bills garage floor. When I checked the rotor with a dial caliper, while researching causes for my Austone inspired front end wobble, we found it was .049 off true. I don't like cheap tools, but this little HF changer might work if fixed up so it's stronger and properly mounted to the floor.

Wow, I never responded to that one: I use 2x4 blocks to suspend the rotor off the floor when jacking the tires on and off. Plus to protect the polish job on them.
I've worn out my rear one in 36k, which even to an aggressive rider, seems low. So I gotta fund that up, plus new tires and a new battery; my trickle charger
began draining it instead of charging.
