Harbor Freight Motorcycle Tire Changing Attachment Review and Assemble

The Urban Monk assembles the Harbor Freight Manual Tire Changer and Motorcycle Tire Changer Attachment and reviews their pros and cons. After assembly, he shares why a home motorcycle mechanic may not want to purchase this tool, unless you plan to remove the wheel bearings every time you change a tire (which isn’t practical in most cases).

I’m so glad you did this video! I was gonna pick one up in the morning but I’m going to look at other options now. Thanks again Mr. Monk!

Most people replace the center for with a 5/8″ rod. It’s a cheap tool, it requires a bit of work. Watch some videos ;). Research stuff before jumping in blind.

That would make me drink…heavily…early. Weird, have several friends that have them mounting Goldwing tires without a problem.

Don’t think it was a fail, you can only work with what you have access to. Enjoyed the video. Thanks

I’ve shopped at HF 3 times. The first time was when I need a 2 1/4” wrench. They were about $500 cheaper than Snap-on and I only needed it once. It broke. Second time, I needed some rubber gloves, they were total crap. The third time I needed a cold chisel. How do you eff up a cold chisel you may be wondering? Don’t temper it. I’m no metallurgist but it had a Rockwell hardness of cheese.
