LEARN TO CHANGE THE MOTORCYCLE TYRE

Let the air inside the tyre to escape using the valve core tool. This tool is either snapped on or screwed into the valve to keep it open. The force of the air coming out is usually quite strong so you will need to hold the valve core tool tightly. Draw an arrow at the edge of the rim with your pencil so you can see the direction of the spin of the wheel. Detach the bead (the inner edge of the tyre) from the rim using the bead breaker tool. You will hear a pop sound when the bead breaks loose. Continue to separate the tyre from all edges of the rim on both sides. Use multiple tyre irons when removing motorcycle tyres. This will allow you to pull off the tyre with less effort since the stress will be distributed. Spray silicone lubricant on the tyre bead. This will allow you to slip the tyre off the rim easily by entering tyre irons under the bead and pulling the tyre away from the rim. Remove both sides of the tyre until the tyre can slip off completely.

Lubricate the inner walls of the tyre thoroughly. Place the new motorbike tyre so its spin direction matches the direction you marked earlier on the rim. Attach the tyre to the rim using the tyre irons. This time the tyre wall will be placed between the tyre iron and the rim so the tyre iron can push the tyre into the rim. Pump some air into the tyre using a compressed air pump but do not inflate it fully. Seal the tyre bead into the rim using the Breezer tyre tool. You can use this tool to press the bead in and then rotate the tyre to get the bead in from all edges. The Breezer tool can get stuck if one side of the tyre gets too tight. Change sides to make the job easier. Inflate your new tyre to the recommended pressure.
