     Thanks Bentham. Fits the bill.
     Glad I asked. I was looking at hemorrhoid cushions :008:
    Tighten it 'til it strips then back it off half a turn.

    Brilliant idea @Bentham!

    @Cazzy_R I was thinking that a haemorrhoid cushion would be good - holds the tyre in place by itself. Perhaps having another one on the floor for the mechanic to sit on during the job as well  :745:

    I've got a small inflatable cushion of ebay for just this task. Put in position & inflate with a small rubber bulb type pump. Only a few pounds sterling.
    Taking the silence off helps all these spindle, caliper removal tasks.
    Hope this helps.

     Inflatables open up a whole new world in motorcycle maintenance.

     Like my new front wheel chock?  :038:

    I actually just removed my wheels and put them back on this week and I'm glad I saw this post first so I could come up with a strategy. I have some ramps for my car so I can get under it so I used one of those to hold the wheel up. I just rolled the wheel as far in as I could, slid the ramp right up to it, put the chain back on, and then rolled it up the ramp so I could just make fine tune adjustments to get everything in place. Made it almost as easy as taking it off!
