I think this is a great idea to assist with tire changing. IF We end up buying the 2013 BMW F800GS bikes we will need to practice fixing flats. The 800 has tubed tires versus our F650GS twins, which have tubeless.
Any thoughts? Has anyone tried these? Waste of money?

Changing a tire is 90% technique. Tire irons or spoons are the only essential tool needed to change a tire but any thing else you can use to help is worth having.
If you have never changed a tire it’s worth doing a few times with the tools you will be traveling with, not the tools you have in your garage.
I have changed many tires but never on my 800… I hope I never have to especially with the Heidenau tires you love.
this little tool seems pretty small and light enough to carry on one of our bikes….looks as though it would be able to break that stiff bead on the K60’s too…the one everyone has a hell of a time getting off their rims. We will practice before we would take a tubed tire off the road with our tool kit…good point Kelsow! Hey…you gonna like us more if we get matching bikes like yours? 😉
A lot of people use their side stand to break the bead from the rim.
If I could like you guys more for getting new f800’s, then yes.
No idea if these work as advertised but if so, they’d be a great addition to my tool kit. Still, I hope I never have to change a tire/tube in the middle of nowhere. Thanks for the info!
ditto but you never know eh? I think they are worth investigating especially since you like us have many places to ride that a tow truck could take very very long to get to us.
Although I have not tried these I have changed many tires with just tire irons including mounting four tires and fixing a flat 125 miles from home on my F800GS alone. These tools my be alright for more flexible tires on smaller bikes but I would not want to use them to break the bead or fix a tire. As strong as 7075 aluminum is I think the tips would break off during the first use. The other thing I don’t care for are all the sharp edges. Even with gloves on I think your hands would take a beating. They do look nice though.
interesting that you think they would break. I hope someone who may have used them can post a comment or even motion pro. Curious about what you said and what they would say…;-)
I have not used these specific tools before but I would agree with trying it with the tools you normally carry. Tube tires don’t have the same bead as tubeless tires and can usually be pushed away from the rim by hand then use the tire irons to get it off the rim.
I was told that the K60’s have a really stiff sidewall and are a bear to get off. I haven’t tried it and don’t look forward to it.
yes the K60’s are stiff tubed or tubeless…even our dealer said they are really stiff…will be interesting
