SOURCE: 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!

SOURCE: fix a front flat tire on a mongoose varial bike

The first step is to remove the wheel assembly from the bike. Once that is done insure all the air is removed from the tube by holding in the needle on the valve stem. You may have to remove the cap from your valve stem first. Next, using a flat blunt tool, pry the inside lip of the tire away from the rim and hold down the tool. Make sure you don't have the tube pinched with your tool. Next, using a second tool, repeat the first step about 6" from the first tool. This should start the tire to come off the rim on the side you are working on. You should now be able to pull out the tube and inspect for holes. Use a simple tire patch kit if you can or simply replace the tube.

To replace the tube, remove the valve stem cap and insert it from the tire side through the hole in the rim for access. Replace cap on stem to help hold valve in place. Carefully lay tube inside tire without folding it. You may have to bunch it up a bit. Start pushing tire edge back around the edge of the rim. When you get almost to the end it will get tough to if the tire is tight.Use your blunt tool to help it over the edge of the rim. Once the tire is on, make sure the valve stem is pulled up tight and straight before refilling with air. Inspect the tire to make sure it is seated on the rim all the way around on both sides. If not, release air from tube and make adjustments and refill. Replace wheel on bike and enjoy your day!

Pull the rear axle, and spacer on the brake side of wheel. Un hook brake rod and brake strut. Position yourself on the brake side of the bike and pull the rear wheel straight out of the final drive housing. Put a little grease on thhe final drive splines upon reinstalling the wheel to aid removal next time.

Fix flat tire


You probably have a Presta valve. Go to a bike shop and get an adapter (for about a buck and a half) it screws on that valve and then you have a regular valve to inflate

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.

How do you remove the front tire from a Honda crf 150 cc dirt bike?


The axel has a nut on one end and two bolts or one pinching the shaft on the other. Jack the wheel off the grond unscrew the nut loosen the pinch blots pull out the axel and the wheel falls out Watch wher the spacers go as they have to go back turned the right way. the brake rotor has to be lined up with the caliper to put it back in as you don't push the brake with the wheel off as the pads will have tobe pried open to get the rotor back in. Tring to fix a flat? same as a bicycle except use soapy water don't forget to use water to cheak for leaks then put on the powder on the tube before it all goes back good tire irons come from bike dealers and bike parts suppliers. Screw drivers cause more troble than thier worth. Road going bikes chage the tube patches are Illegal DOT

How to repair a flat tire?


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)

Fixing a flat tire


Any bike shop will have patch equipment. You need to deflate the tire and remove it from the wheel. See if there is a tube inside the tire. If so, the fix is easy: either purchase a new tube for the tire, or get a patch. Use modelling glue on the patch then press it continually on the hole on the tire for about five minutes until it is dry. Afterwards, re-insert the tube into the tire, reattach the tire to the rim and pump it back up
