Worked!

Tool Report: Standard no adapter.


Changed out Mefo's for Dunlop 906 front (21”)and 908 back (18”) on KTM Adv 990.


The back tire went on as advertised. The tool worked very well and had the tire on in record time.


The Front had some issues. Front tire is 21" and the length of the tool needs to be 1/2" to 1" longer! Also the axle is a larger diameter than the back. The tool fit in sloppy. So need an adapter. I used the sloppy fit to my advantage and shimmed the tool about 1/4" in the axle so that I got a longer reach. That was just barely enough length to push the tire onto the rim.


Conclusion: This tool is great except...for 21 inch front rims the tool needs to be about 1/2 inch longer. Why the tool maker kept it this short is a wonder. When I get around to it I will extend the tool about an inch with a welded in piece. Think I'll go 1" longer.


I do recommend this tool as it makes a beastly spoon job into a “Watch this” simple and easy job. KJ

I've changed a couple rears and did a 19" front, it looked to me like there was enough tool to do a 21, but maybe not. Since it's geared to dirtbikes, I'd think 21's would be a given. I'll have to look at it again tomorrow.

PMR,
Will you ask Are about the tool's length. I'm thinking that the short length is so it will fit small tires, like kid bikes etc.

As long as you're asking, I've got a 23" tire on one bike. An extra-long model could be of interest to me.

Thank you PMR.

I'll take one also, plus both adapters. If it's determined that a longer one is available, that's the one I prefer. Thanks!

I'm going to cancel my request (I'm # 6 on your list IIRC) for the tool. Someone else can take my slot.
Thanks.

I have you down for the tool, as well as both adapters. He offers the shorter rod, I will ask about a longer one. I'm going to mess around with a 21" rim today and see how much longer the tool arm needs to be. Because of the different countries, language barriers, delay in communication, etc., it's not like I can just ring him up and ask him a simple question. In fact, I have never spoke with him. usually it's a few days before he responds, but I'll let you know.

Got you down for a tool, safest thing to do would be to measure the diameter of your axles. The tool, or adapter can be a little smaller than the ID of your bearings, but the more "slop" you have, the easier it is for the tool to slip. And you can always shim your rod up with something, you don't actually need the specific adapter (YMMV) - but the adapters are pretty cheap...
