What equipment do I need for Motorcycle tyre changing?

Motorcycle Garage Equipment Blog


This is one of the most common questions we are asked, and usually is the most simple to answer and can be a little surprising!

The main confusion generally comes from not knowing whether you need specific equipment for motorbikes. You may already know that you can use a standard tyre changer and wheel balancer, but the necessary tools and consumables to accompany these essential machines and get them motorcycle ready might not be on your radar.

So here is the Answer!

In many instances a workshop equipment is already compatible and ready for motorcycle tyre fitting, so buying a separate machine is not necessary. You can simply purchase a generic class 4 tyre changer!
