    I have seen tyre installation via a machine which looks very neat and does no damage to the rim (paint). But not sure if the same machine can remove a tyre from a rim.
    Though the machine will try do it without any scratches, eventually there will be a few scratches. If you're lucky you escape without any. It also depends on the way the tire installation guy does it.

    Ripping the tire apart, is a cumbersome job than actually removing the tire itself.

    Once upon a time, a guy asked a girl 'Will you marry me?'
    The girl said, 'NO!'

    And the guy lived happily ever after and rode motorcycles and watched sport on a big screen TV, went fishing and surfing, and played golf a lot, and drank beer and scotch and had tons of money in the bank and left the toilet seat up and farted whenever he wanted.

    Posted this on FZ25 thread, reposting it here since it's related to tyres.

    After 2.5 years and about 17.5K KMs on stock tyres, I am looking to change my tyres. Main reason is that the bike is not stable under hard braking. My usage is strictly commuting with one or two long distance ride (~500KM round trip) a year. I am not looking to upgrade the tyres as I feed the stock size is adequate for the power on offer.
    If budget is not a concern and if I expect at least 15K mileage out the pair,
    1. What are my options if I am going for stock size?
    2. Is it advisable to downgrade the rear?
    3. Post changing the tyres, anything else that I would need to perform
    4. And finally, any suggestions for a shop around Salt Lake area in Kolkata would be helpful

    Thank you for your help.
