Just used my new tire tool for the first time. I was having problems finishing the tire off, but watched the video again and realized I was pushing the side I had done into the drop center. Did that and tire finished off no problem... very slick.
Now if I could just figure out how to get the rear back on my f800gs without needing 2 men with crow bars, I would have it made

Tire Tool

OK, interesting minds probably want to know. Last weekend i used the tool for the first time. Had about 10 interested onlookers. Shoed a set of Heidenau K60's Which as we all know have the stiffest sidewall known to man onto my buddies 1150GS. Went as easy as pie. Took maybe 5 minutes per tire to get them on(this is only the mounting time). Tool worked great and now have an order for 4 more if another group buy is done. Hope this helps with anyone wondering if it will work on GS's. Am currently working up mods to be able to use it on my 1200GSA and will post those as soon as they are complete.

Jim

Hope to use my tool soon....but in the meantime, has anybody had issues scratching their rims ? I know I know, we shouldn't really care about scratched rims on adventure bikes right ? Sadly, I do

Has anybody come up with a way to use the tool and not scratch their rims ?

I haven't used mine yet (later this week) but I thought that one of the perks of this tool was that there was no contact between the tool and the rim. I'll defer to someone who's actually used it, though.

If the business end of the pusher is touching the rim, you're doing it wrong. It catches the outer half of the bead, not the inner half. The first tire I changed I didn't understand this, but since then I've done 5. Lube the inside of the bead you're working on and it slides over and drops into the rim easy peasy. I'll come by later and give a demo if you want ��

I guess I need to study the videos a little bit more before I attempt to use it.

I'm pretty interested in how that goes. I have a 2012 GSA with the tire pressure monitors and have no experience with even what they look like inside the rim. I'll practice with the tool on some of the MSF training bike's tires before I attempt mine. Any advice on avoiding damage to the TPM on the rims is appreciated.

I'm in on the next group buy

Need to change tires easily to ride with touring gang and off road gang. The 800GS does both well (with the right tires). Love that bike.
