I've had new tires sitting here in my shop for 2 weeks while I waited for enough time to either take them to my dealer 2 hours away or take them off my bike and bring them in to a local dirt bike shop who would change them if they were off the bike. I wondered how hard could it really be as I've mounted a couple of tires before but that was with a changing rack. It took about an hour per tire to remove from the bike / wheel and mount the new tire. Having a center stand would have helped a lot, and could have made the rear go faster. I did not balance the new ones but I'm getting TPMS soon and they will need to be installed and balanced at the dealer anyways so I figure I can wait a month and so far they do not feel too shaky. I was really hoping to keep the front as a spare incase I need a new tire and have to wait due to supply chain issues, but I managed to put a gouge in the bead when dismounting it.
I ended up going with Motoz Tractionator Adventure / Dual venture tires and they are great so far, They are not as good on the street as the stock scorpions but they are not far behind either. I have WAY more grip on gravel and in grass / dirt and I only get a little more noise from 40mph - 50mph like a low whistle or humming sound.
Pro tips, you have to remove at least 1 of the calipers for the tire to fit past, I only removed 1 and it went back together easily. Also, I was able to break the bead with a 6" vice and wood blocks to prevent damage, this worked really well. This video helped a ton:
