What a game changer for me and my arthritic fingers trying to guide the valve stem to the hole in the rim for my dirt bikes. Now that I have this I am kicking myself for not getting one a long time ago!!
I've always had a hard time trying to line up the valve to the hole my fat fingers just don't fit, I maid a homemade one worked for a tire or two then make another one. This tool is great, just used it to install a new shinko 525 cheater love it.
A must have if just replacing or fixing a tube. Saved me the time of NOT having to dismount both sides of the Tire from the rim. Also works great for those with larger hands. Easily pull Tube stem into the rim saving your knuckles as well as time
Such a small item that helps out soo much.Gone are the days fiddling blindy to get the valve into the rim hole while prying against a stiff hard terrain mx tyre! So easy to use and it lines up the tube perfectly. a MUST have for DIY tyre changers
Maybe I missed something in the description but this did not fit the tube on my YZ450. I have a heavy duty tube and the end piece of this was not long enough to engage and unscrew the valve stem. Not sure if this is a common problem or if I just bought the wrong thing...
This is a tool for any moto person changing tires frequently. It is simple to use and makes pulling the valve stem through the rim much quicker for me instead of having to fight to line it up. I do recommend.
Tool works just fine, I just find that it is entirely unnecessary. Just put your tube in your tire before mounting it. Line the valve up with the hole and blamo. I threw this thing in my tool box and never took it out again.
Good tool. Some people are freaks and get the valve stem through the rim with ease. I'm not one of them. Especially on heavy tubes. Makes a frustrating part of tire changing a lot easier. The cable frays and wears out so i just ordered a couple more. One for a spare and one for a friend.
