I bought three of them just incase I needed an extra hand mounting tires on my bike, and I am glad I did. It's an excellent tool, well built, and I am sure I'll never need to replace them.
Used different kinds of tire irons but these have been the best by far. Easy and fast.
I have a cheap Harbor Freight tire changer for my quad. This tire iron is much better than the bar they supply for removing the bead over the rim flange without tearing granted using proper lubrication. It is a little short for leverage but works great once you get the tire in the drop center.
I purchased the package of 2 and this 3rd spoon by itself. This acts like that extra hand you don't have, may not need to use it much, but that short amount time, is a time saver. The material that this is made of is very tuff stuff, I was surprised to see this hold up. I have not changed to many rear tires, so my efforts were not all ways gentle and smooth. Lots of extra strength was used and this and the other Motion Pro Tools did their job just fine. No broken tools, finger or pride.
First off, I was not aware these are only 10" spoons (Had ordered two of them). So did not think they would work as well as my 18" monster spoon. Well, I was wrong. These spoons have a very smooth end, so excellent for avoiding pinch flats. Their thin profile, so they slide under the bead easily. I had no trouble mounting my MT16 rear tire first time around. These made light work and a near effortless tire change. Recommend 3 of them or more if you can swing it. You can work your way around the tire (mounting/dismounting) with these very quickly, especially if you have, 3 or 4 of them. Great tire spoon, well worth the money, plan on getting a few more.
I bought this and a set of 2 motion pro spoons. I replaced my tires on my 450 with these and didn't pinch the tube. This was the first time I ever changed a motorcycle tire. These pay for themselves the first time you use them. Not much else to say...it's a tire spoon.
I watched a youtube video of a guy at dunlop changing a tire, he used these spoons and they work great. I will change a tire any time with these. You just need the right tools and the job is easier, these are the right tool.
This product is high quality. I love these spoons. What was even more impressive was how quickly I received my entire order. This company is on top of their game and I will certainly continue ordering all my parts from this one site. Keep it up and J&P will be out of business!
Based on having not used yet, thank goodness. Quality of materials and workmanship look great.
This is a good quality tool. I had been out of dirt bikes for a long time and misplaced my old aluminum set. I bought this one plus a three pack set. This is an easy tool to use. No pinched tubes and just enough leverage.
