GL1500 Tire Change - a Novel Method using car lift

I just saw this posted on Facebook and thought the method to be quite novel.

Not everyone has a car lift in their home garage, except maybe DaveO430

Pretty slick, huh?
He still had to remove the left muffler.

  • Robert Taylor It is possible that way, but you still have to lower the mufflers out-of-the-way to get the axle out. I take it you pulled it out from the back!

  • Billy Puckett Only removed the left muffler

When I use the Hoist at the Honda shop I just slid the motorcycle back on the center stand let the back tire hang out in the air. I suppose you could do the same thing using a trailer

With no God over the state, the state then becomes not the defender of liberty but the definer of liberty.

If I disagree with you it's simply because you're wrong.

It's the only way to fly. I made a couple of beams of 4" steel channel with welded pins to fit my hoist arms, and rubber pads on top. Holds the bike rock solid. You would be hard pressed to push it off, if you wanted to.

Too impatient to paint them at the time. Someday...

Years back when I was on a trip my 1500 ate a rear tire sooner than I expected ( I was having fun, tho. ) and the dealer I stopped at changed the tire just like that. Had never seen it and was a little nervous but it worked well.
