Rear tire installation

Post by Dulok » Fri Jun 03, 2011 9:26 pm

So I've reviewed the entire forum searching on how to install a rear tire. I need info on how to install it as I know that it will be cheaper in the pocket books. I have a 1979 Gl1000. I just purchased a Dunlop D404 130/90-17. Any and all the info I can get would be great for this new and first time biker/GL1000 owner. I'm really clueless on the name of parts as I have never worked on a bike. The more detailed and dummy proof info I can get the better.

Have you checked out the How To section, How to remove and remount your tires?

Your will be a little different with the tube. Just be careful that you do not pinch it with the tire irons or get the tube caught between the wheel and the tire.
