Noticed that Pirelli now has Angel GT 2 with certification for K1600 GA. Would be interested in experiences with the new tire.

Zip Ties

It will be stiff and it will be a pain but CAN be done with a few tricks. Get the tire good and hot, I use tire warmers on mine but many other methods work, next, lots of lube, and finally, straps or clamps to pinch the tire to force it into the drop center which gives the opposite end room to slide the bead over the rim. Do all those and the tire will pop on with just a few curse words.

The heavy duty zip tie method is the easiest way to mount tire to rim.... You Tube has video...

I've seen it and I see no way a rear tire for our bike will compress like those on the videos enough.

If you have done it, please post a video because I can't compress the tire by hand like they do.
