BTW, the service tech at Honda doesn't lay it over (Oh, I did it again last night to put the newly mounted set back on - remember to let the air pressure down to about 5 psi to get a car tire in). The Honda teck has a trap door on his lift that he can drop, to drop the tire out the bottom. I don't think that is in the FSM, either.
I had a rear tire put on the '98SE at an independent m/c shop locally.
he too, had that Drop Floor door on his lift.
he just strapped the front of the bike down hard, left it on the center stand, and dropped the door down.
