Kinetic tfr moped

Does anybody have an easy method for changing tubes on a kinetic tfr? It's a huge problem when I get a flat tire. Is there an affordable machine or tool to remove the tire from the rim?

Any suggestions would be welcome. Thanks.

el,

I posted this a few days ago to someone else.

Ped tires should come off as easy as bicycle tires. Bicycle tire irons work just fine. Be sure you begin to remove the tire near the valve first and make sure the opposite side is in the well of the rim. When installing tire, begin opposite the valve and finish with the area close to the valve. Again, making sure the tire is pressed into the rim well.

On my way to BBQ5, 3 peds, 90 miles one way, we had one flat in a rear tire. I did not even remove the wheel. Just popped the tire off one side of the rim, pulled out the tube, patched it and put the tube and tire back on. Took about 10 minutes.

If the insructions are not clear, try to find someone who has repaired bicycle tires to show you how.

I had a flat on my puch the other day, and I used this stuff called Fix-A-Flat. it's an aerosol can foam that you spray into a flat tire and it patches the hole with a glue-like substance and then inflates the tire as well. It's been about a week and the tire is still up and working fine. I'm gonna keep a can with me all the time now.

oh, I forgot. It works good on smaller holes. If you have a big hole or a tear in your tube, it just creates a big mess. I tried it on a friend's two bicycle's and it appeared that one tube had a tear going all the way around the wheel. It worked on the other tire and both tires of another bike he had, though.

Brandon,

My imression was that those products were for tubeless tires only, does the can say anything about this?

I don't recall it saying anything about tubeless tires. I left the can at a friends house, but I'll check when I get it back. It seems to have worked, though. I don't know what problems would be possible by putting it into an inner-tube. I think it also seals future punctures, too, but I'm not sure on that. I'll tell you what I can when I get it back.
