I just changed my first dirt bike tire last week on my 07 450, and I didn't think the two locks really made any difference to changing than one lock. The rim locks do make it tougher than having no locks, but I don't think two of them make it any harder than one does.

I spent quite a bit of time figuring out the whole system, tube, tires, rim locks. But now that I know how it all works, changing the tires will be pretty quick.
