    I have an Abba screw down bead breaker which you are welcome to try. Use it to change tyres on my R1150GS wire and ally wheels and the wheels on my K1300S.

    A Big G clamp will break the tyre bead.

    Don't put it "over" the tyre, slide it between the spokes under the rim and come upwards, if you know what i mean.

    Short of kitting out the shed with a professional tyre fitting machine I cant see the point in DIY tyre fitting.
