bead pro

Just used them today on my rear scorpion. Worked like a champ. Broke the bead first time easily. Lightweight and easy on the black rims, no scratches. Worth 80 bucks to me, esp if your out in the woods.

Those Tyrepliers are quite heavy, they work well but are very time consuming.

+1

Just about 3x the weight of the MP tool.

Think I'll be adding the MP tool to my kit.

i sell the bead pro at my shop, i have tried them out myself on a few rear tires, they work great if you use them correctly and add a small amount of soapy water around the edge when you first start, even just a little water will help it move easier, these hands down are the best bead breaker to take out on the trail for the big ktms. they are small, light weight and serve dual purpose having tire spoons on the other side. price is a little high with a retail of $80, other wise great product

Could you or would you do us all a huge favor? Post a how to video so we can all see how they work and the correct way to use them I see there is a lot of questions about this...

I have the new motion pro tool and I have to say after my first use trail side I was not impressed. After grinding the finish off the rim and getting nowhere I switched to the side stand technique and it popped right off. This was removing the stock rear scorp. Maybe with some practice it would work better but I felt like riding over practicing removing my tire. Also as a tire iron I wasn't impressed. The finish on them is somewhat rough compared to others which are smooth chrome platted. The finish grabbed grime and caused friction and ground more finish off. I know it's an adventure bike and its bound to get scratched and beat up but why add to it? In retrospect I wish I had opted for a 20$ set and saved my money.

Come over if you want to see how to break the bead. I am in Issaquah. I need to put the scorps back on but I have been being lazy. I have heard that tool works pretty sweet, but I don't have problems breaking the bead really.

So we seem to have established that the Motion Pro tool, when used correctly, is doing the job as advertised. But for $80, the question for me is why is it necessary? Yes, it is a spoon as well, but it has to be one of the most expensive spoons I've ever seen. So if you have a center or side stand, what's the reasoning?

Why not just grind down the safety bead a bit?

That kauritmoto tool is the most intelligently designed, logical, and most useful tire fitting tool I've seen. I will be ordering one. That said, it is only really suited for installing the tire. For breaking the bead for removal I just get in there with 2 or 3 of these:



or use this for those stubborn big bore dual sport 150 tires:



Lots of lube is a must!:
