Motion Pro BeadPro Forged Steel Tire Bead Breaker
Should do the trick.
I ordered this set of bead breakers for a long distance/off-road trip on my GS 1200. I went with this set for the light weight features to replace some very heavy & older tire irons. Haven't tried them yet, but they appear solid, nice finish and are much lighter than my old set of irons.

strong and well designed
These irons work great. I have a set of these short ones and a set of the longer ones. I have not yet used these short ones but the long ones work great and am assuming the short ones will work the same with just a little extra muscle needed due to the shorter leverage. The designed in bead breaker works amazingly well. The irons are super rigid with no noticeable flex when spooning the last of the bead over the rim. A+

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.
