How To Change Motorcycle Tires
Riding on the highway enjoying the heat of the day when all of the sudden the worse thing that could ever happen, begins to conspire: a flat tire on your motorcycle. This mood is known to change many moods and shift reality into high speed. Listed below will be fast and easy steps on how to change the tire on your motorcycle.
These are the following materials that are required to change your motorcycle tires:
- Several Tire Irons
- Valve Core Tool
- Silicone Spray-on Lubrication
- Breezer Tire Tool
- Rim Protector
- Bead Breaker
- Compressed Air
- Old Tire must be removed by the valve core and make sure that all of the air is first out of the old tire. Grip the tool tightly in your hand as the air is pushed out. Mark the edge so that you know the proper way the wheels are turning.
- Now is your chance to use the bead breaker to separate the rim from the old tire. A loud pop sound should be heard, this indicates that the bead has actually been broken.
- Apply pressure to the other side of the tire until the other bead has been properly broken. Lubricant applied to the bead releases the pressure and makes it easy for the old tire to be removed. Place tire irons under tire, more than one must be used for the safety and balance of the motorcycle. If the tire is lubricated correctly all around the bead the old tire with no hesitation should slide off.
- Lubricate the new tire before installing on the sidewalls. The new wheel should align with the rotation mark that was made with the pin.
- After the tire has been set up in its original space match up both stems into their proper places.
- Inflate the new tire just a little using a Air Compressor, this way the beads can be inserted in easier without pressure building up behind the rim. While using the breezer tire tool to insert the beads back into the rim began shortly rotating afterwards and work on both sides back and forth.
- Finally, inflate the tire to the original "PSI".
