No-pinch tire tool...

I may end up with one of these in my tool setup someday, because I really fought with my rear tire when I changed 'em out about 700 miles ago...

People should not be afraid of their governments. Governments should be afraid of their people.

That's pretty cool! Though for me the hardest part is always breaking the back tire bead, especially on the Gripsters. The original tire I was able to break with the heel of my hand! Lol!

I'd seen that tool somewhere before and was curious about it. Somebody buy one and do a review for us using a KLR rear tire.......

Starts at $90. Certainly cheaper than a tire changer.

It was posted by a guy on another forum. He was going to make a bunch, but then he said he moved, and was delayed in working on it. It just died out, and nothing ever came of it.
Maybe he sold the idea to Baja ?? Or they saw the post, and took the idea?

I wish I had one of these when I changed my tires this Spring. Had to use old BSA tire irons leftover from a 1965 BSA Hornet.
