    There are some good pointers in this video. Automotive tire paste is great.

    Yep, the tire buddy is a decent tool although I've always used a piece of fuel line and stick between the bead and rim to hold the bead down.
    He is using a MX tube so that definitely is easier than a UHD.

    The way he shows getting the bead over the rim lock is not needed on KTM because the rim lock is close to the valve stem.

    What size fuel line? And how long? The whole circumference of the rim? Or just a short section?

    Older KTM's like our '98 have the bead lock half way around the rim, so it's a good technique to show in the video.

    Actually just some 1/4" bulk line I have and cut into sections, just stick in were you want the bead to stay down. I kind of made this up when I got a stand, when I did it on the floor my knees did the job.
