First Hoss

After a really bad experience trying to break the bead on a Valkyrie rear tire, I fabricated this Hoss bead breaker! It's 4ft long and I used 1" solid square stock. Anyway it makes it super easy to break any tire bead and that's what I was shooting for. The 1" solid stock is way over kill and you could get away with using some thick wall tubing and it would cost less. It's all about leverage!

Hoss again

Notice the UHMW that protects my valuable motorcycle tire rims. This is a very simple setup and easy to fabricate if you have the right tools and materials, and it will break ANY bead on ANY motorcycle tire.
