    Does not fit all tires

    The Bead Buddy needs to lock onto a spoke to hold the tire bead in place so you can spoon the rest of the tire onto the rim. It worked great on the front tire but it did not fit on the rear because it was too short to reach from the rim to the spokes. Big oversight. For that price they should come in pairs, one short and one long.

    Bead Buddy is a COOL TOOL!!!

    This is something to carry with you while riding, if you have everything else to change a tire or fix a flat. (I have a Large floor style "Bead Breaker" for the Garage!!!) *Warning, This ONLY works on "Spoke Wheels"

    Great tool!

    Not strictly required if you have three irons, but still takes a lot of the hassle out of tire changes. Well worth the purchase price!

    Works Great!

    I saw it used in a video and decided to give it a try. I always have changed my own tires. I used it to mount an 18 rear on a KTM 400 and it worked great at holding down the bead during mounting. I couldn't ask for anything more. I'm glad I got it.

    works well

    This works well, if you have the right sized wheel. It doesnt work on my 18" XR600R wheel, but it works on 19" wheels, and works great. A little bit of grinding and it kind of fit the 18" wheel enough to let me get the tire on. Ill probably buy another, and not grind on it, for my other wheels.

    Bead buddy

    This is just a darn handy little tool. It replaces all my home made little tools to keep the bead down. I mount mouses on my bike and use two of these bead buddies and a couple of flat tire irons. The bead buddies stay in place and no worries that they knock out your teeth. The first buddies in my shop that dont drink my beer!!!

    First tire I ever mounted and it seems like it helped a lot. Like a third hand.

    Motion Pro bead buddy

    Won't fit my DRZ400 or TT-R230. Maybe one of these days I'll have something it will fit so will keep it. Product page needs fitment chart.
