Motion Pro 08-0471 Bead Buddy II, but would absolutely hate it after using the tool

Best thing ever to swap out tires for dirt bikes.

A nice little tool, well made and nicely anodized. But, i was not able to use it on the rim i was changing the tire on. The tool was too small for my rim and i had to return it. If they’d make a larger version i could use would buy that one.

  • Enter your model number
    to make sure this fits.
  • New and improved design of the original Bead Buddy
  • Hooks over spoke and pushes bead down on opposite side of tire from tire irons
  • Used to push the tire bead down into the drop center of the rim on off-road wheels while using tire tools to change tires

Decent price for what it is.

Don’t change motorcycle tires without this tool.

Much better quality than exspected. The photot do not do this product justice. The anodized finish is excellent. Now changing motorcycle tires is much easier.

Motion Pro 08-0471 Bead Buddy II : I have a kawasaki klr 650 and this tool does exactly what it was designed to do. No muss, no fuss, no hassle. I change out tires often on the klr from streets to knobs and this tool is my third hand.
