    changing rear tire

    I'm about ready to change the tires on my bike after 12,000 miles. So I've been looking at my book on how to do so. It says you need to either remove the rear fender (not looking forward to doing) or lift the bike high enough to get the tire out from under the bike. I like the latter better. But how high is it going to have to be? I dont think a motorcycle jack alone will do this but i have not tried yet. Could somone give some advice on how they do it please.

    A motorcycle jack will most definatly raise the bike high enough to change out the tire

    I wonder the way the rear fender comes down so far in the back if a regular jack would work. But I have'nt lifted it that far yet to see if it would work.

    I've taken my rear tire off before and believe me that's alot of weight to remove.. I mean place something under the front tire while removing the rear wheel to keep bike from tipping forward..It won't fall forward off the mc jack by itself but, is quite wobbly once the weight of the rear wheel is removed. I mention this just for safety.

    OK I'll have to put a car jack under the front. Thanks for the advice.
