Where in my area can I get my dirtbike tire and tube changed


Dirt bike tires are pretty easy to change yourself and all you need is to remove the tire for the bike and have at least 3 long flat head screwdrivers that are about 18" long each. You'll save yourself a couple bucks doing it yourself and get the satisfaction of doing it yourself. But any MC shop will also do it for you at a cost unless you're buing a new tire there, then they wrap the tire change into the cost of new tire you bought. But if you decide to do it yourself, here's a couple tips. There are plenty of videos out there on how to do this so here are some quick pointers.
1) let any remaining are out of the tire.
2) for a dirtbike, loosen the rim locks. (these are on some dirtbikes and you'll know if your bike has them because there will be a bolt sticking through the rim pointing towards the center of the tire. You'll have to loosen the nut on the rim lock bolt to loosen the rim lock.)
3) with all air out of the tire and the rim locks loosened, stick your first screw driver between the lip of the rim and the tire and pull back on the screw driver.
4) When you have pulled back on the screwdriver, you'll see a gap where you can then stick the next screw driver.
5) Don't try to lift too much of the tire at the beginning. there are steel bands in the tire and you don't want to snap them or destroy the rubber that surrounds the steel bands. Because if you do mess it up too much, the steel band is made up of a bunch of steel wires, and if you snap those wires, one could come through and puncture you tube when you put it back on and fill it with air. So don't take too much tire off at one time. You'll get the hand of it.
6) With one side of the tire out you can then reach inside and pull out the tube. Fill it with a enough air to expose the lead and then you can decide to replace the tube or patch it.
7) After repairing/replacing the tube, put the tire back on in the reverse order.
8) Don't inflate the tire all the way the first time. Inflate it half way and bounce the tire to get the tube to sit right.
9) Tighten the Rim locks (if you had them)
10) inflate the tire to the proper pressure.
11) Put the tire back on.

I have a Gio 500w ebike. The tube inside the back tire needs to be replaced and I cannot find the size to buy anywhere.The Gio website sells them but dont give u the size. I was also told that you can...


Hi! I have 2 Gio Scooters. I looked and looked for a tube for my tire and couldn't find a place until I realized that if you go to Ebay online you can actually buy them through Sven the supplier who sells the Gio Scooters on Ebay. You can just buy them from him and pay through paypal. Make sure the valve is curved and not straight out or it's not the right one. He ships pretty fast too:) I hope this has helped. It took me awhile to get parts. He also will ship parts, he's out of Vancouver. So Good Luck:) Do you know anything about fuses for these bikes???? Grrrr....

Struggling to fit replacement inner tube and tyre to our quinny buzz3... Any tips?


You need a set of tire levers to begin with.. anyplace that sells bike parts/tubes tires will have these.. they are just a nicely set of angled thin yet dull levers.

Using the levers you will need to lift one edge of the tire off the rim so the tire is half way on the wheel. To simply replace the tube.. continue on to B.

To completely remove the tire off the wheel.. flip the wheel over and using the levers pry the tire the rest of the way off the wheel. working your way around.. it will be snug then suddenly free.

Replaceing the tire is the same..except you only want to put it on half way before inserting the tube..


B. Remove the air stem cap and if you have the tool to remove the needle valve from the stem.. do that too as to let ALL the air out of the flat.. then pull the bad tube out.

Put the new deflated tube inside the wheel as flat and wrinkle free as possible starting with placing the air stem through the wheel.. and working it around until well seated.. some folks will use a bit of talcum powder on the tube.. usually they come dusted to allow them to properly fit when inflated.

Once you have the tube in the wheel.. start pressing the tire bead back under the rim.. depending on the wheel.. you may want to partly inflate the tube.. just a tiny bit.. so it will not get trapped between the tire and wheel rim when you re-seat the tire.. you can usually re-seat the tire to the rim with your fingers..becareful not to pinch yourself.

Inspect the wheel to make sure no parts of the inner tube is visible.. inflate to proper psi.. put on the stem cap.. replace the wheel.

You can buy a set of tire liners that will prevent punctures.. but of course this involves doing most of the above times four.

Lastly.. if you feel you just can't get it done.. stop by a good bike shop.. they will do it for you in just a few minutes.. possibly for no charge or little charge.

Best of luck!

Air is leaking from spoke how do i stop this


Your inner tube is leaking air. Remove the wheel and remove the tire on one side only (one bead over the rim edge) to allow access to the inner tube. remove the tube and the tire the rest of the way. Basic tire removing tools are neccesary such as tire spoons and rim protectors. check the rim for sharp points as well as any debris that might have punctured the tire. Check the inside of the tire very carefully as well. If somthing punctured the tire it might be still sticking out on the inside - a potential hazard to your fingers. Patch the tube or, better yet, replace it - a much more dependable solution. Install one bead of the tire back on and then the tube. Infate and deflate the tube with one side of the tire off the rim to ensure proper fit and arrangement of the tube inside the tire. Reinstall the tire and the wheel back into the bike following manufacturers recommended procedures and torques found in a service manual.

Need tire tubes for back tires. Can't find anywhere. please help or Schwinn should take back faulty product.


Usually you can look on the tire sidewall and find the info you need.For a really good explanation of tubes and tire sizing try http://www.sheldonbrown.com/tire_sizing.html In general a 12" marked tube should fit a 12" tire. There are other factors to consider though and the mentioned site explains them all very well. When you replace the tube make sure you use plastic or synthetic tire tools to prevent a pinch flat. A pinch flat occurs when you accidently puncture the tube while mounting the bead of the tire back on the rim and the tube gets caught between the rim and the tire or the tool and the tube etc. Only put enough air in the tube to give it a little shape when inserting it in the tire. Hope this helps. Get back to me if you need any more advice and I can further direct you.

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!

Push bike tire


Inner tubes commonly lose air when stored for as little as a couple of months and quicker when cold. They also tend to dry out and leak as fast as you can pump. Replacement tubes are available at bike shops and even less than $6.00 bucks at Wal-Mart.

To replace(The long version,cause the short version not good):
Remove wheel from bike, trike, trailer, etc. and deflate tube completely. You will need 2 box end wrenches (the ones with the closed ends, because these are not sharp). Insert box end of wrenches next to each other between rim and and one wall of tire, now pry the wrenches back so as to pry one wall of tire to the outside of rim, now alternatingwrenches, slide wrenches away from each other to slowly walk one wall of tire outside of the rim, reach in and grasp old tube and pull it out. Now straight new tube out remove plastic fill cap(put cap in your pocket), reach in and insert filler into hole in rim, now working your way around with your fingers to push tube up into tire(carefull not to let it get twisted), now put cap back on tube so you don't loose the filler, now work your way around with your fingers to push tire back into rim, you may need to use the box end of the wrenchto help pry the last bit of tire back in(Just don't pinch the tube between wrench and rim while doing this, lest you now have a new hole to fix), now grasp filler so you don't loose it, add air to amount shown on tire, and RIDE ON!

Balanced


Yep, they need to be balanced. You can buy a kit to do this at home if you want. If it's a tubeless tire then you don't need tubes. Tubes don't help do anything for tubeless tires.
