Seems like there was a thread on the old forum about a combo wrench/spoon for tire removal based on what model bike you had, like 20 or 30 bucks and it could fit both tires.



It might have been a 2 lever set but I'm having a hard time finding anything for a similar price.



The motionpro set might work but I don't know if it'll fit both tires.



Enlighten me, please.



Thanks.

I do all my tire changing with 3 tools. First is an ordinary tool about 9 inches long. Second is the same as the first, with an inch of the staright end bent 90* and notched to hook on a spoke for a 3rd hand assist. Third is an about 15-inch version of the 1st. They are sane type as these: http://www.motorcycle-superstore.com/2/9/205/4460/ITEM/Motion-Pro-Enduro-Pro-Tire-Iron-Set.aspx I'm not sure of the brand because I've had them for 45 years. I've tried many different styles and types of irons over the years, but none work any better--they just cost more.

Not sure if this is what you are makeing reference to. It happens to be the stock TW axle nut wrench that I welded a couple of channel sections to. With this, I can now use my tire-irons for the needed extra leverage required (for me) to get the axle nuts loose. I have used it twice and it seems to work fine. Gerry

I am so getting out the welder when I get to the shop this afternoon! Then I can replace two combination wrenches with the stock axle nut wrench and save space and weight.

If the stock one is good enough quality, then I'm fine with using it. A few taps with a set of pliers got it loose for me the other day. I really dig that idea you got there though, Gizmow.



Only problem is nobody I know nor myself can weld.

I'll P.M. you my address. If you think or get what seem to be the same tire-irons I have, send me your wrench plus a $1.00 (postage) I will weld you a couple of holders and you should be set. Gerry

I welded mine up today. Tried it out with the long tire tool and breaking loose the axle nuts was a piece of cake.

The commercially available ones are expensive so i too made my own. 19 & 22 mm. I also ground the end of a spare 19mm spanner I had to make a third tire lever. The long tire levers work very nicely.
