It’s inevitable. Sooner or later, you will get a flat tire on your motorcycle. It happens to the best of us. But don’t worry, changing a tire is not as difficult as it may seem. In fact, it is a relatively easy process that can be completed in five easy steps.

Here is a step-by-step guide on how to change a motorcycle tire:

1. Park your motorcycle on a level surface and put the kickstand down.
2. Remove the wheel from the motorcycle by loosening the axle nut with a wrench.
3. Take the old tire off the wheel and dispose of it properly.
4. Put the new tire on the wheel and make sure that it is seated properly.
5) Put the wheel back on the motorcycle and tighten the axle nut with a wrench.
6) Pump up the new tire to the proper pressure and you’re good to go!

Step 1: Remove the Old Tire

The first step is to remove the old tire from your motorcycle. You will need a few tools for this, including a socket wrench, a tire iron, and a Phillips head screwdriver.

Start by loosening the bolts that hold the wheel in place with the socket wrench. Once they are loose, remove the bolts completely and set them aside. Next, use the tire iron to pry the old tire off of the wheel. Once it is off, you can discard it or recycle it.

Now that the old tire is off, you will need to clean the surface of the wheel so that the new tire will adhere properly. You can do this with a rag and some soapy water. Be sure to dry the surface completely before moving on to the next step.

Step 2: Mount the New Tire

Now that the old tire is off, it’s time to put the new one on. If you’re unsure about how to do this, there are a few things you should know. First, make sure that the new tire is the right size and type for your motorcycle. You don’t want to end up with a tire that’s too big or too small.

Next, take a look at the new tire and find the “bead seat.” This is the part of the tire that will sit on the wheel rim. The bead seat should be clean and free of any debris. If it isn��t, use a rag to wipe it off.

Once you’ve located the bead seat, it’s time to start mounting the new tire. Begin by walking the tire onto the wheel rim. You may need to use a little force to get it started, but be careful not to pinch your fingers between the two objects.

Once you have the new tire in place, it’s time to inflate it. Use an air compressor or hand pump to add air to the Tire until it reaches its recommended pressure level. This information can be found in your motorcycle’s owner’s manual or on the side of the Tire itself.

Step 3: Inflate the New Tire

Now that the new tire is on, it’s time to inflate it. Be sure to use a tire gauge to check the pressure of the new tire and inflate it to the manufacturer’s recommended PSI. It’s important not to over-inflate or under-inflate your tire, as either can cause problems down the road.

Step 4: Replace the Wheel

Now it’s time to replace the wheel. Match the hole in the axle with the hole in the wheel, and lightly press the wheel down onto the axle. Screw on the Wheel Nuts: Holding each nut with a socket wrench, screw it on until it’s just barely finger-tight. Use a torque wrench to finish tightening each nut to between 50 and 80 foot-pounds, in a star pattern.

Step 5: Lower the Motorcycle

Now that the new tire is in place, it’s time to lower the motorcycle. If you have a center stand, engage it and slowly lower the bike until the tires touch the ground. If you don’t have a center stand, ask a friend to help support the weight of the bike as you lower it. Once the bike is resting on its tires, remove the jack and stand.


Now that you know how to change a motorcycle tire, you can be prepared for anything while out on the road. Be sure to take the time to practice at home so that you feel confident and comfortable before attempting this process on your own. With a little bit of preparation, you’ll be back on the road in no time!
