The Deluxe Motorcycle Adapter kit is designed to enlarge the clamping range of all Atlas® wheel clamp tire changers. The deluxe motorcycle adapter kit is installed over the existing turntable clamping jaws to INCREASE the EXTERNAL clamping range of the turntable jaws. Unlike the standard motorcycle adapter kit for tire changers, this new deluxe version has two mounting locations which allow for the widest range of rim diameter capability. The height of the deluxe motorcycle adapter kit clamping jaws allows the wheels to be elevated above the solid wheel clamp turntable. This added elevation is useful when doing motorcycle tires and will allow many rear wheels to be clamped effectively (for the purpose of mounting or demounting a tire) WITHOUT the need to remove sprockets or hubs.
The increased rim diameter capability provided by the Deluxe Motorcycle adapter kit, not only great for changing motorcycle tires but also for larger automotive and truck tires, is not the only advantage of this new adapter set. The deluxe motorcycle adapter kit is heavy duty and features thicker sides for a stronger design. The stronger construction means the deluxe adapter kit will provide years of quality performance.
The handy deluxe motorcycle adapter kit is secured to the existing jaws with a screw clamping system that ensures a positive clamping action by the jaws. The metal jaws of the adapters can be covered by the plastic jaw protectors to prevent damage to expensive alloy rims. A free set of small plastic jaw covers is included with this purchase!
Please remember that clamping force exerted at the MINIMUM and MAXIMUM positions is REDUCED considerably. When clamping a rim with any adapter set, please make sure that the clamping pressure is sufficient to hold the rim securely.
The use of the Deluxe Motorcycle Adapters prevents the use of the air bead blast feature on the majority of tire changers. The Deluxe Motorcycle Adapters are slid over the standard wheel clamp jaws on the tire changer table and will block the holes through which the bead blast shoots the jets of air. This means that you will not be able to use the bead blaster to help you reseat the bead of a tire when you are using this adapter set.
