Do they fit the KTM wheel nuts? If so where did you pick those up?

This device, or one quite similar was discussed on another thread in this forum a while back and the reviews were mixed. IIRC the criticism was that the width of the "pinch" is not sufficient to break the bead, e.g., a larger radius area needed to be pushed toward the rim on each bite.

http://www.advrider.com/forums/showt...t=bead+breaker

Having said that, the product that is the basis for this thread seems to work fine even though the "bite" is not particularly wide either. For this reason I would love to hear more commentary on both of these products. I too need a solution and am undecided.

Anybody???

I have not used these other two beadbrakers,but I do see a problem w/ them.



They press on both sides of the bead at the same time; so when one side of the bead brakes free you no longer have any thing to pry aganst to get the other side to break free (...and you do have to break the beadlocks on both sides).



Also, it does look to me that this "cooper" tool does have a larger "bite" on the tire.

The tire irons with integrated box wrench come from Motion Pro and yes they fit the axle nut. They are called the T-6 combo wrench and can be found on the New Products page linked off the Home page. They are very light.

We were in Baja this year, between the 7 bikes we had 8 flats, broke them all loose with the side stands. one of the bikes was a 950. Problem is getting enough air with a hand pump to get it out on the rim

I think everyone is right on with this. It could be a garden tool, and peace pipe. It also is a bit pricey. (it all depends on what its worth to ya to be able to easily fix a flat out in the bush)

The cable goes through the axle and then back through the spokes to be a leverage point.

Send him an E-mail if your interested mailtoale@cooperoil.com

I help a guy out with my bead breaker in Elko, I had to he was an hour into trying to break the bead with a "C" clamp. The tool works. Its effortless to use and worth the cost. I met the inventor at the NRE 2 last year. He a 950 rider and great machinist. Its a quality tool made by an American in America! If you have ever had to break the 950 rear bead on a stock rim you know what a bitch it is? This is stupid simple!!!
Cheers

Cool2

COOL! Nothing like a testimonial when you throw a C note into the wind.

Would not this device work just as well on a wheel on the ground? That IS the one thing that perplexes me here. Why are they working on a tire still on the bike?

Because of the cable part of the device I surmise. But why not do it in the dirt?

If you get my meaning.

Sure, you could do it with the wheel off the bike. The question is; Why do it in the dirt. Thats one nice thing about it. you dont have to grind dirt into the hub, and you dont have to put loppsided pressure on the disk brake and sprocket.

We received the last 6 that Dale had until his next production run and one or two have been sold through the shop which leaves (let's see 6 minus two equals ???) anyway, you're good, it'll go out tomorrow.
