$5 bead breaker its Genuis

Bead Breaker for Motorcycle Tires - webBikeWorld


Internet BMW Riders - DIY $5 Bead Breaker that works every time ... quickly

I was looking into getting set up to change my own tires and came across this. Its genius, I have see some home built bead breakers but this is just so simple.

You can make a tire balance with using the bikes axle and making a stand either out of two chairs or 2x4 if you want to be elaborate.

All you need is a compressor and tire irons.

Yep, I've seen a few bumpers and more than one door panel get reamed while watching this technique in use. I also love all of the cool splinters it leaves in the side of the tire and stuck to the goo inside the rim . . .

It actually looks like something Godfather would sell and not stand behind when it failed.

It's amazing how stupid some people can be.

Re: $5 bead breaker its Genuis

About every semi-serious sport touring guy in the country has built a version of that in his garage at one time or another. It's usually screwed to the wall using a barn door hinge. A bit neanderthal, but they actually work pretty well...

Re: $5 bead breaker its Genuis

Oh man... talk about a bad idea to break the bead. That's rocker panel damage waiting to happen. I thought you were going to show us a useful tool.

I used it

worked for me. I slip the board under my trucks step rails no issues so far. It does take some practice though to get the angle right.

Re: $5 bead breaker its Genuis

I've see a C-Clamp used somewhere... Wouldn't that be easier/cheaper/smaller/less likely to damage your car?

Re: $5 bead breaker its Genuis

I triend that once. All I succeeded in doing was picking up my pickup truck for a half dozen repetitions. It didnt budge the bead at all. :-)
