Before mounting a tubless motorcycle tire, it helps to spread the bead with cardboard spacers, and then warm up the tire by either putting it on the dashboard of a car that is parked in the sun, with the windows rolled up, or if its cold out, put the new tire in front of a heat vent in your house, and cover it with a blanket or tarp, turn up the thermosat, and let it warm up about an hour or so. [Mmmmm, it make the house smell like fresh warm rubbery tires...] Then mount it before it cools.
