Don't forget the opposite side of the tyre need to be pushed down in the recess in the wheel when levering off

Sorry, slightly off topic, but speaking of tires...

Bought a set of Michelin Road Classics for my 750, and just installed the front.  With the current rebate that's going on, these tires were still expensive, but manageable, or so I'm trying to convince myself.  Take this for what it's worth, but the front went on with minimal difficulty, working by myself, and it balanced with one lone 7 gram weight, opposite of the tire valve.  I couldn't see any reference marks on the tire, guiding how the tire is to be installed relative to the valve, so I just put it on.   Haven't put the rear on yet, but hoping for same.

Oh, and printed on the tire sidewall states (something to the effect of): "Tubeless.  Use a tube with tube type wheels."

If you're installing a new tire, re using the old tube could be asking for trouble.  Tubes aren't expensive, so do yourself a favor.  And you won't have to worry if you damage the tube getting the old tire off the rim.
