Oh...I understand your problem now. Previously I thought you had air in the tire but one of the beads simply would not 'pop' into place. You already know the answer as a ratchet strap should solve the problem.

I have only seen the flash technique used on a large tractor tire. If you attempt on a moto tire, please record.

Nevermind, I see I am a bit late. I thought the last page was the last post in the thread.

A tires a tire. The rapid expansion of the fire pushes the tire on the bead. For extra safety make a trail away from the tire with brake clean, to act as a “fuse”. But that’s just more fire to stomp out.

To me, that method’s safer than a tire that takes 60+ psi to pop on the bead. After a certain point, I don’t wanna be anywhere near it when it’s filling.

I got it all back together and went for a test ride.

WOW, they are awesome!!!!

The bike really feels planted and very responsive. I don't ride very aggressively, but they are confidence inspiring.

I saw 50 deer and 5 police on my 35 mile trip.

Thanks for all the hints, advice and encouragement.

This is the stuff I use to shove tires on the rim, it dries fairly quickly, so you have to work fast or apply more. I just set a new record for mounting a Power RS on the front, I used no zip ties or straps, just lubed it up and shoved the first side on and then kneeling on one side shoved the other on. No tire tool needed either. I was so excited at how easy it was, I forgot to balance it. Oh well, we'll balance the next one.

Mounting an 18" tire on a 17" rim does not count.
