Pedro’s Tire Levers are a cheap but well-loved tool for your pneumatic or motorcycle service. Just $5 cost me a few on Amazon. If you would like to have some, my videos and the Cool Tools blog can be supported via the link in the description.
If your motorcycle has a flat, it can be unbelievably difficult to pull the tire off of your wheel without a method.
Pedros Tire Lever isn’t very smart, but it works well and is cheap enough to buy a package for any motorcycle at home.
They are light but durable, made of milkcrate-like composite material. And like Legos, they snap together and hold them together easily.
It’s very quick to use them. You may use the corner of these to drive the valve into the air to get it absolutely flat if the air is not already outside your tire. You wind the curved lip under your tire and raise it on the surface.
Now, if you don’t keep it, your tire will probably come back. The cool thickness of the Pedro lever is that it hooks on your spoken side and holds the lever in place on the other side.
The 2nd heel can now be wedged and the rest of the tire is working bit by bit with both hands available.
Then you turn the lever over and use it to squeeze the tire back and up and over the rim with the tube patched or removed but still flat.
How to Use a Tire Lever
Many pneumatic handles are made of hard plastics and available in two or three pieces. There might also be levers made of steel or with a stainless steel core for more difficult to remove tires. A curved end is given for all the tire levers to slide under the lip of the tire; it may be fully rounded or squared, depending on the brand. Most pneumatic levers, if not all, are on the other end with a small hook to secure it for torque spoke.
Removing a Tire
Start with the deflated tire. Choose a spot on the boundary of the edge of the border with a voice. Remove the tire from its border and match underneath the edge of the tire the curved end of your lever. Press the heel with the tip of the heel under the edge of the tire and pick the hooked end on the spokes by using the joy rim. The heel should raise and hold the edge of the tire up and outside the rim.
Installing a Tire
Placing a tire on a rim is usually a little easier than deleting it, but it may still be important to use a tire lever. Fit the rim first on one side of the tire. (You’ll want to bring this in the next if you are using a tube.) Now match the other side of the tire on the bottom. The last section of the tire is too close and leaves a small section outside the ripple, so you’ll find it hard to do it. Try to leave the final portion of the tire, if necessary, by the valve on the rim purposely.
