Tubeless Tyre Puncture Repair

 

Imagine yourself, riding down an open highway on a roadtrip, no sign of civilization and the cool wind blowing in your face. Suddenly you are brought to a sudden halt with a flat tyre. Now, imagine the joy if your bike came with tubeless tyres and you had a full puncture repair kit at hand. So unless you don’t have a tubeless tyre, here is how you do it:

 Untitled-1

WHAT YOU NEED:

1) A full Puncture Repair Kit (Includes the Tool 1, Tool 2, cold mending rubber strips and a cutter blade as shown in the picture)

2) Pliers

3) A portable Air Pump

 

Untitled-2STEP 1:
Park your motorcycle on its centre stand in a flat surface. Locate the nail (or other material) that caused the puncture in your tyre. Then rotate the tyre to a position from where you can have a comfortable access to the nail. Put the bike in gear if it’s the rear tyre, so that it doesn’t rotate during the procedure. Use the Pliers to pull out the nail.

 

Untitled-3STEP 2:
Take out a strip of the cold mending rubber and pass it through the eye of Tool 2 so that there is equal length of the rubber on either side of the tool. Put it aside.

 

Untitled-4STEP 3:
Drill Tool 1 through the hole created by the nail. Here, you must follow the path of the hole created by the nail. Insert about 2/3rd of the tail through the tire.

 

Untitled-5STEP 4:
Pull out Tool 1. Now take Tool 2 with the rubber strip fitted in it and insert it into the hole. Here again you have to follow the path made by Tool 1 and pierce about 2/3rd of it through the tire.

 

Untitled-6STEP 5:
Now wrap the rubber strip around the tool and press the strip on the either sides of Tool 2 against the tyre with your fingers. Pull out the tool. Then cut the remaining of the rubber strip protruding outside the tyre, leaving behind about 5mm of strip from the surface of the tyre.

Inflate the tyre to the recommended pressure and check for any leakage of air from the repaired portion by wiping the area with a cloth dipped in water. If all is well, then you’re ready to roll back on the highway again.
