First thing: Make sure whatever gave you a flat in the first place isn't still stuck in your tire! Nothing sucks worse than fixing your flat only to give yourself another one when you pump it back up.
Easy fix: Replace the tube.
Cheap fix: Find the hole and patch the tube. Use the cheese grater to rough up the surface of the tube around the hole. Apply the glue. LET IT DRY. Peel the plastic off of the patch and press it firmly onto the dried glue. It will stick, I promise.
Tip-make sure the tire is evenly centered on the rim as you pump the tire back up. Ya don't want to blow the ****** off the rim. And don't go poking screwdrivers under the bead of the tire to put it back on--you'll likely poke another hole in your tube. Use your hands. It's not so hard, you can do it.

Finding the hole can be a huge hassle, in order to find it you should try ikecur instructions.
But if you want fast repair you should buy a new spare tube and install it.

Hi!

to find the hole, try to fill the tire with air, and put it on a shallow water were it's enough for you to see the bumbles that come out from the tire.

to repair a flat tire, take out the interior of tire and if you happen to see the location of the hole try to find an unused rubber and cover the hole with that rubber and glue it with a quick drying glue... (this is a non-professional work)

Replace rear tire


Hi James
Yes you can replace the rear tire, just follow the steps in the bike owners manual or buy a service manual. After the tire is off if you are not comfortable removing and replacing the tire from the rim you can take it to a bike shop and they will change it for you. I hope this helps. Rod

Fix it. Flats are a fact of life. Learn to deal with them. carry a pump, a tube and a patch kit.

Google "fix flat tire bike" for how-to's. Always try to determine the cause of the flat prior to removing the tube or you may just get another one.

Need diagram for removing rear wheel to fix puncture on power ped


you can easily fix a flat without removing the wheel from the bike if it uses a tube application to inflate racers use this method to save time as you just have limited space to do your repair apposed to removing the wheel completely dunno just a thought because im thinking your bike has wheel tensioner jigs on the rear axle and they can be tricky to get rite if your unaware of how they work and you could do more damage then good so try to slip the tire off one side pull the tube out and mend your flat and dont forget to check the interior of the rubber for burrs of foreign material less then a 10 minute job good luck message back if your stuck ok :)

How to repair the brake caliper on a 2000 nissan maxima


How to Replace a Brake Caliper
( DIY Complexity: Moderate / Time: 2.1 hours )

Parts:
1. Brake Caliper

d50f8cb.jpg

Tools:
1. Combination Wrench Set
2. 3/8 in. Drive Ratchet
3. Floor Jack
4. Jack Stand Set
5. C-Clamp
6. Mallet Hammer
7. Flat Head Screwdriver
8. Socket Set
9. Tire Iron
10. 1/4 in. Drive Torque Wrench

Supplies:
1. Brake Cleaner

Steps:
Step 1 Park your vehicle on a solid level surface. Set the parking brake and chock the rear wheels.
o Tip: Safety Tip:Always wear safety glasses when working on your vehicle. Wear other personal protective equipment (PPE) when necessary, for example latex gloves or safety shoes.

Step 2 Remove the front wheel hub caps if applicable. Using a tire iron, break loose the front wheel lug nuts but do not remove.
o Tip: Lug nuts fasten the wheel to the hub and may be on very tight. To gain more leverage, use a breaker bar to loosen the nuts.

Step 3 Using a floor jack, lift up the front of your vehicle.
o Tip: Using an aftermarket floor jack, instead of the original equipment (OE) jack, can make the job easier and safer. Verify the condition of the floor jack before use.

Step 4 Secure the vehicle with jack stands on both sides for safety before starting any work. The pinch welds or the frame rails are the two best locations. Do not rely on the jack to hold the vehicle up while working.
o Tip: Try to find a flat, level, and strong surface to put the jack stands.

Step 5 Remove the front wheel lug nuts. Remove the front wheels and set them aside.

Step 6 Inspect the brake caliper for any signs of binding. Look for rust and uneven brake pad wear.

Step 7 Remove the brake caliper mounting bolts (sliding bolts).

Step 8 Support the caliper up and away from the working area. Make sure you do not kink or pinch any brake lines.
o Tip: Use a bungee cord to secure the brake caliper out of the way and hang it on the suspension spring.

Step 9 Clean the sliding bolts and lubricate them.


Step 10 Install the new caliper over the brake pads and rotor. Attach the caliper to the mounting bracket with the sliding bolts. Tighten the caliper sliding bolts to manufacturer’s specifications.

Step 11 Disconnect the brake line from the old caliper. Attach the brake line to the new caliper using new copper washers. Tighten the banjo bolt.

Step 12 Repeat for the other side. Bleed the front brakes.

Step 13 Reinstall the front wheels. Torque the lug nuts to the manufacturer specifications in a star pattern.

Step 14 Remove jack stands and lower the vehicle to the ground.

Step 15 Verify that you have a solid brake pedal. Road test the vehicle to verify brake caliper repair.


Hope this help (remember rated and comment this).

Back tire changing on mongoose gravity games bike. How do you change the back tire in this bike? It is very hard and confusing. I don't know how to do it. I need help.


If you have pegs on the back you will need a deep socket to fit the nut and a socket extender and a socket wrench. with the wheel off it is just the same as changing any other bike tire. Just make sure you check the inside of the tire carefully for anything poking through that may puncture your new tube. Also check to see if you need a new tire and make sure you inflate the repaired tire to the correct pressure or you may get a pinch flat.

Change front tire


Hi,

Before you start make sure you have the following:
- jack or any other instrument to lift the car
- tool to open the tire bolts
- spare tire
- if you ar eon the side of the road a warning triangle or any other object to make sure the oncoming traffic can see you.

step 1 - Open the tire bolts, remove all of them but two. The bolts left on the tire should be left quite loose (you should be able to open then with your hands).

step 2 - Position jack underneath car & lift car. VERY IMPORTANT to make sure the jack if proparly positioned & that the car is stable (for a car that has one wheel in the air...), so it won't fall on you. Don't stop lifting once the flat tire is in the air, remmber you have to fit in a new tire. Lift it so the new tire can fit in.

step 3 - Remove the last to bolts with your hands, while loosening secure the tire with one hand so it won't fall on you.

step 4 - Remove flat tire, while doing make sure not to damage the bolt which the tire sits on.

step 5 - Fit new tire in, screw 2 bolts by hand to secure it place.

step 6 - Screw rest of bolt by hand so secure tire in place. Make sure to "push" the tire as firm as possible to the car.

step 7 - Lower car. Do this slowly incase the tire isn't sitting properly.

step 8 - Tighten all the bolts properly, don't over tighten them, cause the next time you have to change the tire, you won't be able to open them.

step 9 - After driving a bit with the car, retighten the bolts, just to make sure nothing is loose.

This only sounds a bit complicated it's much simpler in practice then on paper.
Good luck & congretulations,
Eitan.
