Can't imagine a better tool for the job
This is an awesome product. The only thing it doesn't get 5 stars on is value (they are expensive) but totally worth it. Granted, I've changed hundreds if not thousands of bicycle tires but this is the first time I've changed a motorcycle tire. However I can't imagine a better tool for the job. The bead breaker works exactly as described, super easy. Tire lever part works great too. Took me ~40 min to do both front and rear tires in the living room. One thing I will say, I'm very glad I went with the extra long steel version - I could feel them bending slightly as I pried the tire onto my 16" rear wheel. It would've been tough with the shorter aluminum version. Overall though, couldn't be more impressed. Pay the extra and get the right tool, you won't regret it.

Excellent product. Just bought it and to try it before going to ride, I change a tire in my living room!, no issues at all

Expensive...but when I am stuck in the bush I don't want to skimp on tools
This is was more than I wanted to spend on tire levers but the fact that this tool does more than the average tire lever makes it worth it. I am only buying this kind of tool once and I expect it to last a lifetime. Based on the feel, I believe these are very well made.

So I have tried several methods to break the bead and this solution turned out to be the easiest and quickest. The tools were easy to use and quality built. I would recommend this kit.

does it's job
They work better than expected, I have just done without a breaker in the past. These not only break the bead easily, but can go along for the ride.

Great, Easy to Use
I bought these to carry on my tube tired dual sport. I decided to install heavy duty tubes immediately after receiving these bead breakers to test them out and they worked as advertised.
Breaking the bead was easy and using them as tire irons was as expected. This beats my past trail side bead breaking using the kickstand! Overall a great, high quality product as are all Motion Pro tools I've ordered, I would recommend them.

moTion pro bead breaker
great product. Easy to carry on bike assuming you are competent at tubeless tire changes, this breaks the bead with a little help from one additional tire iron. Once you've separated the bead while holding the bead breaker down,use your third iron with the spoon curve down like your trying to remove he tire and just inch your way around. Only takes about three or four inches. Then it poops off the bead.
Sounds harder than it is.
Much easier than trying to use the bikes side stand by yourself on the trail.

Great tool for the trail and the garage
Had to replace my rear tire for the first time but I wanted to be able to also change a tube on the trail as one day, it will inevitably happen. My first intention was to get this tool for breaking the bead but since I was going to be in the safety of my garage, I wanted to test them as tire irons as well. I got the short version (10 inch?) and I liked the fact that I coud slide it under the disc while priming the first part of the bead off the rim. Obviously the small size will help carring it in the tool roll.As for breaking the bead, well...it could not be easier. The tool worked flawlessly and I feel ready to repeat the whole thing on the trail. Invest in your tools...will last longer and make your life so much easier
