The Mojolever

Thanks for visiting the home of the Mojolever!  Since fall of 2005, I've shipped over 2600 Mojo's to riders all over the world, and have received great feedback from many of them.  Chances are you've found your way here because of positive comments from a satisfied customer. 

What’s So Great About This Thing?

If you’ve ever changed a motorcycle tire with old-fashioned tire irons, you know where the expression “blood, sweat and tears” comes from.  It’s hard (and sometimes painful) work.  I know, I’ve used tire irons dozens of times myself, and the rims on my last bike had a lot of “character” to show for it. 

The Mojolever combines paint protection and mechanical advantage so that one person can change a motorcycle tire with relatively modest effort.  When used correctly, you never need to pull on the bar with more than one hand.  It’s three feet long, made of solid steel ¾” squarestock, and is finished with sandblasting, phosphating, and a thick, durable gloss-black powdercoat. 

 

The “demount” end (for removing tires) looks like this:

That’s a nylon sleeve on the tip to protect your rim from scratches, held in place by a high-strength steel 3/8" bolt, coated to resist rust. 

The “mount” end (for installing tires) looks like this:

That’s a nylon insert underneath the “hook”, again for protecting your rim from scratches.  Nothing but nylon ever touches your painted rims.

If you want to read Fred Harmon's review of the Mojolever, click here.  As you'll note in his review, the Mojolever at that time (2007) was fitted with a stainless steel bolt in the "demount" end, and Fred discovered for me that it wasn't strong enough to handle the tires on a Honda Goldwing.  After hearing of his experience I stopped using the stainless steel bolt and upgraded to a high-strength, carbon-steel bolt with zinc plating.  All Mojolevers now ship standard with that high-strength steel bolt, and they will take care of Goldwing tires!

 

Sounds Great.  What Do I Need To Buy?

To change your own motorcycle tires, in addition to the tools for getting the wheels on/off your motorcycle, you’ll need four things:

  1. Harbor Freight item #69686, Portable Tire Changer.

  2. Harbor Freight item #60810, Motorcycle Tire Changer Attachment. 

  3. One MojoLever.  You buy items #1 and #2 from Harbor Freight (see above links), and the MojoLever from me.

  4. A static wheel balancer.  I strongly recommend something from Marc Parnes.

Note that if you have the Mojolever, you do not need traditional tire levers (“spoons”) at all.

The Harbor Freight changer comes with its own tire lever, but it’s virtually impossible to use, guaranteed to scratch/gouge your rims, and will leave bright red powdercoat behind.  This is in fact the reason that the Mojolever exists: it works beautifully, and when used properly it will not scratch your rims.  If you want to read more about it, click here for a Google search of discussions about the Mojolever.

 

OK, How Much For The MojoLever?

The price is $99, and that includes shipping anywhere in the 48 lower United States.  If you need it shipped somewhere else, email me at prestondrake@comcast.net and we’ll work something out.

I am also offering wheel-balancing weights for a small additional cost.  These are adhesive-backed ¼-ounce squares of polyester-coated steel, 6 strips of 12:

The price for the weights is $12, and shipping is free with the purchase of a Mojolever.  So your total payment is either $99 (for just the Mojolever) or $111 (for the Mojolever plus a set of wheel-balancing weights).

 

I'm ready to buy! How Can I Order/Pay?

I currently have a limited quantity of Mojolevers ready to ship!  Please email me at prestondrake@comcast.net to confirm availability and receive payment instructions.

What else have you got?

If you haven't seen them already, you might also be interested in a set of Mojoblocks.

Should I fill my tires with nitrogen?

Also, if you're bored, you might be mildly entertained by my vanity web page.

 

Thanks!
