So will it break the bead on the rear wheel of the Adventure? Yep sure will, quite well in fact. You have dick about a bit to get "fork" part in far enough, but it once there it pops it off straight away.
Is the lever part any good? Not really to broad and flat - I reverted to my normal spoons.
I just bought a pair of these, had $40 of gift card credit @amazon and $53.46 wasn't as obnoxious as the list-price. I've tried the side-stand trick and it's worked sometimes (but not always). I figure I'll try these. If they are no better I can turn-em around in the Flea Market.
[edit: also saw this guy raves about them (about half way down): http://www.advrider.com/forums/showp...&postcount=180
and if you look at the video of Schofield Pass embedded in the previous thread post: http://www.advrider.com/forums/showp...&postcount=149
you'll see that they all know a thing or two about bikes]
