Motorcycle tire and tube changes made easy

Changing your own tires isn't as duanting of a task as you may think. The first rule is having a nice pair of tire irons or spoons-not screwdrivers or prybars. I prefer spoons, but either can be purchased for 10-20 dollars from any motorcycle parts outlet. After you get your irons or spoons, don't use them for prybars or any other use other than changing tires. It's important that they stay free from nicks and scratches so they don't damage tire beads or rims and puncture tubes.
A five gallon pail makes a good tire changing stand. Place the rim and tire on top and remove the valve stem to release the air if it isn't already flat. Remove the retaining nut from the valve stem and push it into the rim. Loosen the bead locks if you have them and push them into the rim as well. Sometime these get stuck, if you need a hammer be sure not to damage the threads. Leave the nut on the top, it's not necessary to remove the rim locks just get them off the bead of the tire.Break the bead down around the entire rim and apply soapy water with a brush or I keep a spray bottle in the shop.Use plenty, it won't hurt anything. Pry the bead over the top of the rim, hold it with the spoon and move 2-6 inches around the rim and do the same thing with the other spoon. Keep repeating until you have the entire bead off one side. Flip the tire and rim and repeat the process. On the second side, once you get about 1/2 way you should have enough slack to pull the rim into the open side of the tire, grab the other side of the tire and pull it over the rim by hand, tube and all.Take soapy water and a scrub brush and clean all the dirt from the inside of the rim. Be sure to realign the rim liner so the holes line up with the valve stem.
Installing the tire and tube goes like this. Put the tube in the tire and put enough air in the tube just to give it it's proper shape and fill the tire. Remove the lock nut off the valve stem, if it has 2, leave the bottom one on. Apply plenty of soapy water to the inside of the tire ,tube and both beads.Open both sides of the tire beads at the valve stem, insert it thru the hole in the rim and install the lock nut, then lay the tire over the top of the rim. Apply more soapy water to the rim and start to pry the bottom bead over the rim from the valve stem in both directions. When you get to the rim lock, you'll need to flip it over and carefully pull the bead past it and then push it in the tire so it's in between the beads. Flip back over to the side you started on and finish the bottom bead. If it dried out apply more soapy water and start the top bead from the valve stem around in both directions.Only put the spoons in far enough to catch the edge of the rim to prevent puncturing the tube. As you start to get about 1/2 way around, compress the section of tire that's already mounted so the beads can move towards the center of the rim; that will give you some slack and make installation of the last 1/2 of the tire easier.When you get to a rim lock, you'll need to push it into the tire so the bead can get in between it and the rim.Finish the top bead, inflate it to insure the beads seat and then tighten the rim lock. Be sure not to exceed any bead seating pressure maximums listed on the tire. Let air out of the tire until the recommended pressure is achieved. Good luck!

Snow Thrower Model 247887001 tires are flat. how do you refill them no inner tube

Easiest to take them off the machine. The bigger compressor you have the better (more air flow and pressure). Try to get the bead on one side to jam against the wheel in the bead area. Sometimes turning the tire similar to screwing it onto the wheel will help. Then try to pull the other side of the tire up against it's side while trying to inflate. Easier to do with two people but I never have help. Sometimes a nylon tie down wrapped around the middle of the tread and ratcheted down some will cause the tire beads to expand up against the rim. If you can't get it try to take out the valve stem core (tool is cheap from auto parts store) as you'll get more air in quicker.
If all else fails you can use starting fluid. You need almost NO starting fluid for that size tire. Barely squirt anything in there and then toss a match at it. You can use a BBQ lighter but it's best to toss a match. I've done car, riding mower and snow blower tires this way. It's NOT the safest way to do it but it works. Always use the least you can as you can always ad a bit more on the next try. What you don't want to do is hold the trigger down and spray a bunch in and damage the tire or blow it off the rim entirely.

Hunter manual tc3700 tire machine

Sometimes the polished shaft the arm carriers ride on becomes dirty and/or dried out, which wont let the carriers lock into position. We usually spray them with brake clean as we work them up and down, then re-lubricate the shaft with WD-40.

Change tire kawasaki mule

Those tires and rims on the Kawasaki mule are extremely hard to change! To break the bead I use an impact hammer (metal tube with heavy rod going through it.) I have used a long pry bar or long crow bar. Step on the tire next to the rim and squirt a soap solution between the rim and the tire bead... do this all the way around the tire. Set the crow bar upright on the tire next to the rim and a couple of good hits on the top end of the crow bar should give you a little room between the tire bead and the rim.Just get a little room between the rim and tire bead, slip the crowbar between the rim and tire bead letting the other end of the crow bar rest on a piece of wood, and smack the crow bar next to the rim with a sledge hammer. Don't hit the rim!!! You can lay a short piece of two by four on top of the end of the crow bar to give you a better target. You'll need to do this around the circumference of the tire until the bead is broken all the way around the tire. Again, Don't damage the rim!! Take a short break, because you'll need to do the same thing for the other side of the tire!
Break's over... Lay the tire with the short lobe of the rim up, (the deep side of the rim down), and use your crow bar to lever the tire bead over the rim. The side of the tire you're not prying on should sit in the valley between the bead lobes. use another tool (long screwdriver or such to keep the tire from slipping back down over the rim. keep levering the tire off of the rim. Do the same for the other tire bead making sure the other side of the tire stays in the valley between the bead lobes. Installing the new tire is just the opposite of removing the old one. Don't be afraid of using the soap solution to install the new tire, and be careful not to damage the bead area of the tire (The bead is where the tire touches the rim, and any damage there will cause an air leak). You'll get a workout doing this job!!

Yard machine rototiller has a flat tire.

You may have to bring it in to a tire mounting service station, as these small tires can be hard to re-seat. You need enough air pressure to seat the tire bead in the rim.

Mounting Tubeless tire on Rim of riding lawn mower

With the mower jacked up place a belt or rope around the center of the tire all away around and draw it tight. Apply pressure and when the tire starts to fill you can release the belt. Apply pressure until you hear the bead pop, indicating that it has a bead lock to the rim. Let the air out to the right pressure, check all tire pressures and set the deck to level. Go mow your lawn.
