    How easy is it to swap out a new rim and tire? Is it an easy job like on a car or is a lot harder to do? I'd like to get a second rear tire that's say 100% street when I'm doing more street riding, then swap out the original or purchase another dirt leaning tire.



    Thanks.

    its not to hard if you have the right tools. the biggest thing is supporting the bike securely while removing the wheel. if you had a good motorcycle jack or stand and a impact gun it could be done pretty quickly with practice. probably 10min.and riding again.



    hope this helps
    not a TW owner but i play one on this forum.

    5 minutes. I have one wheel with a TW34 and one with a TW204. I can do both wheels in 10 minutes.



    2x4 propped under passenger peg on right side.

    Remove axle nut.

    Remove axle.

    Roll tire forward and peel chain off left side of sprocket.

    Roll wheel and tire out.

    Remove brake.

    Switch wheels.

    Reverse to install.

    I love it!



    I just muscled my Tdub up on a milk crate, only to find it was *barely* high enough to slide the rear tire out.



    Leaning it up on the kickstand and sliding a 2x4 in makes much more sense!

    Its not hard, you basically unscrew the rod then it slides right off. it can be tricky putting it back on ( you have to line up the groove and the rod at the same time) but still a cinch....

    It's easier than a car tire... Only 1 nut/bolt to remove



    Sliding it back in is easy, as long as you have 3 hands Seriously, I just slid the bushings in between the forks (had to spread them a tad), and lined up the brake slot/arm tang, then musculed the rod in the keeper. Then slide it all forward. No biggie!

    Once the axle is out there is enough play in the little piece the brake rod goes through I can slid the wheel out and remove the brake assembly without touching brake adjustment. The hardest part is getting the slot on the brake backing plate lined up with the tab on the swingarm and keeping all the adjusters in place while sliding in the axle. It is much easier with a 3rd hand.

    For me the only issue is to put it back together.

    On the <2001 with drum brakes, you have to line up the break housing with the metal tab on the swingarm, both on the front and rear, to be able to put the axle. It is definitely easier if you get a helper. When I do it by myself, I make sure I have a few wood pieces to wedge between the floor and the tire, so it is a the right height and I only have to "push" it into place. Once you do it a few times it is not that tough. Just make sure you take a very good look at where everything is before you pull it apart.



    Just as a reminder, both the front and rear axle nuts need to be torqued to 65 ft/lb. And remember to put the cotter pins once you are done.
