Fairly recently I removed a tire. That was enough for me, I took it to a dealer to have it put back on and I am not likely to ever do my own tire changes again. It really is a lot of sweaty work. :'(

Removing fuel tank and disconnecting battery should do it , but I would unplug ignition and decomp modules. Then weld.

Sorry to read about that score, sounds like the Cleveland Browns.  I usually don't use the irons much when breaking the bead, I just try to squeeze down on the side wall and break it lose.  I don't use the irons (or spoons) until I've broken the bead. There are lots of ways to do it.  Some of the youtube videos are pretty good.  I did buy a couple rim protectors but mostly I just use some plastic cut from a laundry detergent bottle or something like that usually does the job.  Seems like heavy leather should also work, like from an old belt.
A hundred degrees and high humidity, that would drive me indoors for sure.  Get a cold one out of the fridge and watch a few of those guys on youtube changing tires.  You might change your mind and want to go at it again tomorrow.

Did you use the new zip tie tire changing method?    Or did you just wrestle with it twice, once for each bead?

I hate to admit this but it looks like the rear tire beat me. I wanted to remove the old rear tire, patch the tube and put the old rear tire on again while I await my new tube for my new tire. I was able to break the bead but with the tire irons from Harbor Freight and no rim guards it looks like I was starting to damage the rim. I tried putting a leather glove in between as protection for the rim but it just got in the way. It was 100 degrees out there with around 100% humidity and I finally just gave up. I guess I will not be riding until that new tube gets in and I will pay to have it all properly installed. Angry

As I recall it was on eBay. Was a kit steel plates , friction plates & springs for a Savage , think it was $110.

B O A T translated means "Bust Out Another Thousand". But, in a way, I do admire your choice; about 4 years ago, I got hot on aviation. It's an awfully expensive way to get a "Gee Whiz" thrill.
