A normal motorcycle/atv jack will work but have to have tool to set belt tension. I plan on buying a jack and the tool to set the belt but not right away.

An old man once told me that the only thing that comes close to the smell of a new motorcycle is the smell of a stripper at closing time.

I put lots of tires on belt drive bikes without a special tool. I don't even use a hertz meter for Ducati belts. Been doing it long enough that I know what a properly tensioned belt should feel like.

I put tires on Likwid's VRod last spring. No special tool in the garage that I can recall, except maybe Lkwid, himself. LoL

A Big +1 for pauly, I don't let anyone else touch my tires anymore.

order a set, and ship em down there, could be a fun ride depending on route

Al is definately a character....He was kind of cranky the first time i spoke with him, but after a few minutes, I couldnt get him to shut up...man did he have a lot of stories about "when he was younger". I've taken every bike I've had there there since the BMW....no complaints here
