Or just use the teeth of the rear sprocket
I've never had an issue sealing a bead with CO2 or a small electric pump. It's all about putting a little pressure on points where the bead is loose.
And lots of lube
I don't have much experience with CO2, but when trying to mount a new MotoZ on my 1090 (very stiff tire), I watched the fog of the CO2 cartidge blast out through the bead on two attempts. I ended up getting it seated with a regular pump using a ratchet strap and *just* the right amount of pressure. Took me hours. I'd have been hosed on a trail, which is why if you're riding off road and tubeless, bring tubes!
This ^^^ all of it.
Building my tool kit right now, and wanted to share my axle wrench solution.
I believe in supporting the awesome vendors and such, but at the same time, I'm a low budget guy. Frugal. Tight-ass. Call it what you will. I'd like to blow a wad on the motion pro tire iron/wrench combo. But I work in an industry where we are good at making do. It's second nature.
Regardless, I had a half-drive impact socket kit from Harmless-Fake that just so happened to have a 27mm included which fits my XRR rear.
Rarely use it. Have other nicer chromed stuff.
A little grinder and 7018 later and we have this, fused with love to a tire iron.
I started to hack away at a similar 17mm for the front then just happened to notice...it fits like a glove into the 27. A little more 7018 and some grinder action yields a 17mm socket with "dogs" on the outside that fits a 27mm 6 point like a glove.
Next on the list is a driver solution that will take care of ratchet needs, and hopefully replace that fat-a$$ed 12-in-1 screwdriver. Something like THIS.
I think I only need:
1/4 drive adapter, and extension
45 torx (skid plate)
jis 1, jis 2, slotted
Nice tool mod!
So? what happened to that thumbnail, looks painful?
That issue is all over the site thumbnails showing up blurry click on it and it shows clearly
I meant the purple from an impact
Let’s just say I’ll hold the hammer with both hands next time
Your only supposed to hit it twice
You can get a 45 Torx bit with a 1/4 drive end from MAC tools

Thanks for posting that. Bought the “tool check plus bit and rachet set” for $56 “because I REALLY NEED it”....
Well that was good for 3 sets of L-keys (Metric, Imperial and Torx) that I couldn't live any longer without!
I don't really need this. I don't. I have a set of Craftsman. They are just fine.
Devil on left shoulder -> click it man, you know you want to, you're going to love it.
Angel on right shoulder -> don't do it, I can't imagine what you'll end up spending, you don't need any more tools.
Me -> CLICK

Repent and be saved (from the wrath of Wife).
I was actually trolling you when I posted that link and you fell for it! Bwahahaha......
