The Cars of Queens: Part I - BIG MUSCLE
Before BIG MUSCLE had its feet planted firmly in West Coast soil, it was stationed here... in beautiful Queens, NY. Now while most people would never think of Queens as a destination spot, believe me when I tell you that in this land of graffiti, window bars and padlocks lies some of the coolest muscle cars that you're ever likely to see. This is Part I of BIG MUSCLEs two part episode on the "Cars of Queens". In this episode we take a look at a wicked 1966 Chevrolet Chevelle SS drop-top and a stunning 1968 Dodge Coronet R/T. Both cars have been updated accordingly in all departments and both cars were conceived to be, at their cores, bad-ass New York street fighters.
How to change a motorcycle tire.
Tire Tools » http://goo.gl/YfGyd
Every rider needs to know the basics of how to change a tire. Today, we're gonna walk you through those basics. First off, you'll need a few tools for the job, including:
• Three tire spoons
• Rim savers
• Bead Buddy or similar tool
• An accurate tire gauge
• Rim lock and new tube (if replacing a tubed tire)
Once you have your tools ready, it's time to get to work. The first step to a tire change is to remove the valve core from the valve stem. Be sure to loosen the valve stem and rim lock after performing this step.
Next up, it's time to break the tire bead. Here's where your tire spoons and rim saver will really be helpful, especially if you want to protect your wheel's shiny paint. It's best to install the rim savers 180 degrees from the rim lock, then install all three tire spoons underneath the rim savers and tire. Once you lift the tire up and over the rim savers, you can begin working your way around the wheel, carefully using the tire spoons to wedge the tire off the wheel. Using three spoons makes removal easier, as you can remove the center spoon while keeping the other two in place.
Once you have the wheel fully levered off the rim, the next step is to remove the tube and the lock nut from the valve. Once these are removed, go ahead and flip the wheel and finish removing the tire.
After the old tire/tube are removed, you can now install a rim lock (if desired). Most motocross/endure wheels have a hole on the rim somewhat opposite the valve stem where the rim lock would go. Don't tighten the rim lock down fully at this point. That can be done later.
Now it's time to begin installation of the new tube and tire. Start by lubing up the new tire's bead with any soapy solution (a la window cleaner, hand soap and water, etc...). This will help the tire slide on the rim a bit easier. Go ahead and push the tire down onto the rim and get ready to install the tube. Before you place the tube in the tire, start by adding a little air to the tube, as this will help it hold its shape and prevent any folding or pinching during installation. Line up the valve stem on the tube and begin working the tube into the cavity between the tire and rim.
Once the tire and tube are in place, repeat the tire removal process in reverse by using your tire spoons to set the bead on the tire. Start at the rim lock and work your way around, carefully wedging the tire bead down and into the rim. Tools like a Bead Buddy are very helpful at this stage to keep the tire in place while working the bead around the rim.
Now the only work left is to tighten up the valve stems and rim locks and add in some air. Before you reinstall you're tire, it's smart to use an accurate tire gauge to measure for correct air pressure. Once you're good, it's time to mount up and ride!
We hope this info helps the next time you need to perform a tire change at home. With the right tools and a little know-how, changing your own tires is a breeze. Keep visiting our blog for more helpful tips and tricks, and the low down on some great deals for all of your parts and accessory needs!
