are you talking about breaking the bead? or removing the tire? Breaking the bead is simple. I understand the removal part. You know what really helps is a lot of tire LUBE. The center of our wheels are shallow. It really helps if you pull the tire to the center of the rim. Removing the tire is the easy part, putting a new one on the hard part. Heat up the tire in the sun or with a heater.
I think the biggest part is the LUBE and pulling the tire in the center of the rim.
Watch the NoMar videos on their website, they specifically address the BMW K1200 tires.
