If you take aggressive turns on new tires, you may dump your bike. New tires may have sticky or slimy goo on them, either mold-release compound from the manufacturer to make sure the tire comes out of the mold, or lubricant to let the tire slip more easily onto the rim. (Tire manufacturers and installers deny that such materials exist.) In any case, new tires are smooth and have limited traction. Take turns gently, slowly increasing your angle of lean. Slowly is the key: You always want enough of the contact patch to be on the broken-in section that you don’t lose it. Eventually your chicken-strips will disappear.

Cant get front tire back on 2011 yamaha ttr 125 le motorcycle how to loosen front break pads to put tire back on


Hi, great bike! take two flat blade screwdrivers; place 1 on top of pads, in between the pads,and the other opposite the first screwdriver then gently flex the screwdrivers sideways. You are squeezing the brake fluid back into the master cylinder on the handlebar. do it gently. you should now have enough room to slide the disc back into place and put the axle in. Happy riding.

My toyota corolla2005 rear right side wheel scrubing th tire when breaks


I would first check the break parts on that tire. remove the tire...making sure you take the precaution to chock the other tires and use an appropriate jack and proceed to removing the tire. Once the tire is down look at the the components for wear. Some break pads come equipped with a metal blade that once the pad wears out this metal plate comes in contact with the rotar or drum and makes a high pitch metal grind sound. This would be the indicator to change your pads and may possibly need to resurface your rotars or drums to spec. Let me know if that's what it was. GE.

I am having trouble putting the front tire on my Schwinn Merge 26'' Women's Mountain Bicycle


The easiest way to put on or take off a tire is to release the break cable. Bikes nowadays have a quick release for the break cables and that will release the pressure on the break pads.

Fluid leak on inside of rear driver side tire


More than likely it's either break fluid or axel lube. Axel lube will smell really strong and if it's leaking out it will build up on the breaks and make the rear tire skid under heavy breaking. It is also very thick. Break fluid is thin and has almost no smell.
