Putting air in back tire

When I check my air pressure (34) I have a hard time getting air into the rear tire - it acts like the valve is clogged up. Anyone else experience this? Or know what causes it? On my shopping agenda for the week is to try and find a tire repair kit to carry on board in case of the dreaded emergency.

Change the tire valve internals first or the core maybe when you remove core a piece a crap will fly out of the hole w escaping air .. replace or maybe youre tire schrader adapter is not a good fit anymore

What is the easiset way to check tire pressure and add air to the rear tire of an FLHX? I have a hell of a time doing so.


Well, about all you can do it roll the bike either forward or backwards until you can get to the valve stem the easiest. Still, sometimes it a real bear getting around all those saddlebags, spokes, or whatever. But, with perserverance, it can be done. There is no secret trick to make it easy. Unless you want to remove the saddlebag on the side that the valve stem is on long enough to air up the tire.

Air pump fits on front tire valve, but not on rear. won't catch valve stem...both are schrader valves. help???


The tube has rotated on the rim. You will need to let the air out of the inner tube then "break the bead " on the tire to free the tire from the rim. With the tire edges now separated from the rim you can squeeze the tire and tube together as you turn the tire in the direction needed to rotate the inner tube back into alignment with the hole in the rim. Now refill the inner tube to 5 lbs less than the max pressure noted on the sidewall of the tire. Low tire pressure is what allowed the tire to spin on the rim, taking the tube with it.

A “very helpful” rating for this answer? Thanks!

Tire maintenance


Check your tire air pressure at least once a week and before long trips. Be sure to use an accurate pressure gauge. -Check your air pressure when the tires are cold. The tires are cold when your motorcycle has been ridden less than a mile at moderate speed or after being stopped for three or more hours. -If you must add air when your tires are hot, add four pounds per square inch (4 psi)(28 kPa) above the recommended cold inflation pressure. Recheck the inflation pressure when the tire is cold. -Never release air from a hot tire in order to reach the recommended cold tire pressure. -Normal riding causes tires to run hotter and inflation pressure to increase. If you release air when your tires are hot, you may dangerously under inflate your tires. -If your tires lose more than two pounds per square inch (2 psi)(14 kPa) per month, the tire, the valve, or wheel may be damaged. Consult your local dealer for an inspection. -Use valve caps to keep valve cores clean, clear of debris and to help guard against air leakage.
