Do my own as well, the bigger the bike the bigger the tire the bigger the job.
The Thunderbird Commander is some work.

I have a manual tire changer I purchased form Harbor freight, took me two seasons to modify it to my liking.
Also have a Mojo Lever, nice piece of kit. and a balancer.

Last mount I used Ride On tire sealant in the tubeless Avons.
Three reasons, no balancing, tire puncture protection and cooler running longer tire life.

It' doesn't appear the tire life will be extended by the looks of the wear. However the balancing with the product was great.
