    I doubt most people have a vise big enough to reasonably use as a bead breaker - especially on something like the 130/80 I was removing.

    I bet that vise weighs as least as much as the Coats 205...

    No, it doesn't.

    I had the same problem some with the seat so I doubt it's the rack, but I guess it's possible.

    I just went and played around with it for a few minutes. The right (throttle/brake control) side will unlatch easily as long as I'm not pulling up. The left side doesn't want to come up period.

    I don't worry about knocking picked up rubber off the tires if I'm not running warmers. Doesn't hurt anything.
