Motion Pro Bead Buddy Tire Tool
The Motion Pro Bead Buddy is a handy little tool that is designed to make changing dirt bike tires easier. This tool is very simple in both design and use. It is used to hold the bead of a tire down in the drop center of the rim while using tire irons to pry the tire bead on or off the rim. Using the Bead Buddy is like having an extra set of hands holding the tire while you work with the tire irons. While the Bead Buddy proved to be useful in working with conventional inner tubes, it (or a couple of them) would be ideal for installing foam-insert type tubes. A picture of the Bead Buddy on a rim can be seen here on the Motion Pro Website.

At the time of our review, cost on the Motion Pro Bead Buddy (P/N: 08-0187) was $26.30 and can be ordered from your favorite retailer. Rating - 1 2 3 4 5
The Bead Buddy is another quality tool from Motion Pro, designed to make lives easier. It worked as intended but we felt its price was too high. You would have to drop over $50 just to have a pair of them. We rated the Motion Pro Bead Buddy at 3. Originally published on or about 3/30/2003.
