If you puncture or otherwise damage the rear tire on a Yamaha Morphous scooter, or if the tire develops a slow leak, you may need to change it. Changing the rear tire on a Yamaha Morphous scooter requires you to remove the rear wheel from the scooter itself before deflating and prying off the tire from the rim. You will then need to position the replacement tire on the rim and inflate it to the proper psi.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Lift the Morphous scooter up onto the centre stand.

  2. 2

    Position the socket wrench on the centre bolt on the left side of the rear wheel.

  3. 3

    Turn the rear wheel clockwise as you crank the socket wrench to the right to crack, loosen and remove the bolt. If you attempt to crank the socket wrench without putting tension on the wheel by turning it against the crank, you will only succeed in turning the wheel.

  4. 4

    Position the socket wrench on the centre bolt on the right side of the rear wheel.

  5. 5

    Turn the rear wheel counterclockwise as you crank the socket wrench to the right to crack, loosen and remove the bolt.

  6. 6

    Pull back the rod from the centre of the rear wheel to remove the wheel from the wheel stand.

  7. 7

    Press the air fill stem into the tire to remove all the air from the tire before pressing it entirely through the rim.

  8. 8

    Pry an edge of the tubeless tire off the rim with a crowbar.

  9. 9

    Work the tip of crowbar under the edge of the tubeless tire until the tire pops off the rim.

  10. 10

    Hook the inner edge of the tubeless tire and the tip of the crowbar into the gully running along the centre of the rim's edge.

  11. 11

    Work the crowbar's tip around the gully as you turn the rim so the tubeless tire slowly hooks around the rim.

  12. 12

    Turn the tire on the rim until the air fill stem lines up with the hole in the rim.

  13. 13

    Reconnect the wheel to the wheel stand by threading the rod through the centre hole and reattaching the bolts that secure the rod.

  14. 14

    Attach the end of an air pump to the air fill stem and inflate the tire to about 29 psi.

Tips and warnings

  • The rear panelling of the Yamaha Morphous makes it difficult to both position and crank the socket wrench to unscrew the centre bolt. Take care not to smash or graze your knuckles as you attempt to unscrew the bolts on either side of the wheel.
