    Putting a metzler 200 on myself with pics

    I put the 200 on the M today..Did it myself in the garage without any tire tools.The entire processs took about 45-50 minutes.
    I used a regular floor jack..C clamp 2 pairs of channel locks a rubber hammer ,and a screwdriver.Sorry to post pics of a dirty bike,but its to cold to wash it.
    Remove the brake lever...remove the brake support arm...remove the axle nut,then drive the bolt out from the right to the left,then the tire drops right out.

    The 200 70 15 (175mm) is exactly 10 mm wider then the stock 170 80 15(165mm).

    What i noticed when i got mine was you have to lean in harder and keep it leaned in the corners.Not a major amount but enough that i noticed.It just doesnt want to stay down as much as the stocker did.Nothing a little riding cant get you used to though.And it really does look bad ass.
    If your going to criticize someone you should walk a mile in their shoes,that way when you criticize them,your a mile away and you have their shoes.

    Nice, you changed the tire and saved some dough which is even better

    Now I must ask, how did you balance that tire because I will almost guarantee that nice new shiny tire is not balanced now

    Good job....I am still having trouble with mine...the pipes are in the way so I can't take out the axle. I now have to remove the pipes to be able to push the axle out.

    The steeler told me that the tire dont get balanced,but the rim does.
    If the rim has a weight on it ,it is balanced.As far as the tire goes there is a mark on the tire to line it up with the valve stem on the rim.you cant go wrong.

    Got some vice grips?
    Grip onto the left side,and beat the vice grips with a rubber hammer.
    It will come free.

    I actually tried wrenching it out from the left side but the entire hub was moving so I had to realign the right side brake cover. I'll mess with it again next weekend when I have some more time.
