TUBE-TYPE TIRES

Mounting procedure:

  • When replacing the tire, use a new tube too.
  • Make sure that rims are clean and well preserved.
  • Check the condition of the rim and the flap and, if required, change the flap.
  • Slightly inflate the tube.
  • Position the tire in accordance with the designation ROTATION on the wall-side.
  • Using a special tool mount the tire (finish at the valve). Use a special emulsion to simplify the mounting procedure.
  • Inflate the tire up to the pressure of 3.5 Bar and check the position of the tire bead and the tube. If the position is incorrect, deflate the tube and correct the position of the tube and the tire bead. Re-inflate the tube until the tire bead fits in the correct position on the rim.
  • Adjust the tire pressure up to the value specified by the motorcycle manufacturer.
Dismounting procedure:
  • Remove the valve insert and completely deflate the tire.
  • Push both tire beads from the rim.
  • By means of a special tool remove the tire from the rim.

TUBELESS TIRES

Mounting procedure:

  • When replacing the tire, replace the valve too.
  • Make sure that rims are clean and well preserved.
  • Apply special emulsion to the rim and the tire bead.
  • Position the tire in accordance with the designation ROTATION on the wall-side.
  • Using a special tool mount the tire (finish at the valve).
  • Inflate the tire until the tire bead correctly fits in the rim seat (it should slide over the TL edge on the rim) and carry on up to the pressure of at least 3.5 Bar to assure that the tire closely sits on the rim. (It is recommended to inflate the tire without a valve insert.)
  • Adjust the tire pressure up to the value specified by the motorcycle manufacturer.
Dismounting procedure:
  • Follow the procedure for tube-type tires.
