When I bought my Versys 1000 the dealer put the front wheel on backwards.... I found out 250 feet away from the dealer when the ABS light didn't go out..I just kept going and went home and turned it around myself..... if they didn't get it right the first time, I had no confidence they wouldn't screw something up the 2nd time....

drive in reverse!  Lopez....brilliant!

I broke my bead breaker tool, now this is getting interesting. (a 2x4 lever contraption screwed into the garage door jamb)
Time to build a new bread breaker rig. 

Nothing like working a stiff walled tire in a cold garage.

This looks like a 3 beer job.
In a pinch, a large C-clamp can be used as a bead breaker. Got any woodworking tools kicking around the shop.  :084:
