Changing Tires

since my CBR600RR doesn't have a centre stand I guess I have to take it into a shop to get the tires changed right? if you have changed tires at home what have you done? thanks.

You need a set of stands. I believe Dlit is organizing a group buy.

Do a search for Pitbull Stands. There should be a post about a group buy.

get a set of stands, redlineracing.com has an excellent set I bought a set for both my R1's. As for tire changing its cheaper to take you rims off and take them to the dealer. My local started charging $40 bucks a tire to mount and balance, i'm getting ready to do 3 sets so I just ordered a tire changer today, with 3 bikes I'm not paying 440 a tire, the changer and balancer cost me a $1,000 but I have ALOT of friends that ride so it will mke its money back. harbor freight has them also for just over $100, I decied to go all out so I didnt scratch my Carrazzeras on my 04 or chrome rims on my 02!

Get stands for sure. Much cheaper to do that way. It's not tough to take off wheels. My local shop charges $20/tire if the wheel is off the bike.
