Motorcycle Tire Changing Tools and Equipment: You’ll need a bead breaker; tire levers; and a wheel balancer type balancing stand. Don’t forget – you’ll need an air compressor also! (although I do it with a 2-stage Zefal hand pump!)
Wheel Weights: All types of motorcycle wheel weights for cast wheels and spoked wheels and other tire changing equipment are manufactured by Franken Industrie in Germany (in German and you have to search around the site a bit to find things | Really cool cast wheel weights in different shapes at Metal Arts (wBWReview) Note: their website wasn’t working last time I checked, are they still in business?
Tire Changing Equipment: Just about everything you need, including a bead breaker; tire irons; balancer; rim protectors and weights available from TireQwik
From “A.G.” (May 2012): “(For tire and wheel balancing) I use a rope threaded through the axle hole so that the wheel can hang parallel to the floor. Weight is added to the high side of the wheel until the wheel is parallel to the floor (or perpendicular to the rope). Stick-on lead weights work great for this.
A funnel can be inserted into each side of the axle hole to center the rope in the axle hole to help eliminate any moment or torque due to the rope not being perfectly in the center of the axle hole. I’ve found this method to be quicker, effective and a lot cheaper than any other method.”
