This tool is perfect for sportbike front wheel with big brake rotors and not a lot of room to get your hand in there. Works pretty much on anything with a normal valve stem. If you work on sportbikes a lot, I would rate this as a must have tool. And it's inexpensive.
When attempting to remove the valve core using the one built into the cap, the little plastic prongs shear off immediately, got stuck in the threads, and were impossible to remove, plugging the airway so that the tube could neither be filled or emptied. Use a metal valve core remover.
Always took my KTM990 rims to the Shop and used the tire machine to keep from scratching the black rims.
Not anymore! Got two pair, changed them at home and saved time and money!
Worked excellent, highly recommend these to anyone who changes their own tires.
Worked perfectly on a 120/70 R17 front tire. I didn't realize the tool won't work on anything wider than a 160 when I bought it, so haven't used it on the back tire. I now see the product description says it isn't intended for anything bigger than a 160. That would have been nice to know before I bought this so I could have explored other options that can handle back tires on street bikes. A relatively simple modification should get this thing to open wide enough to handle a 180.
