Fastest Way To Fix Bike Tire With Least Effort and No Special Tools.


You all know that putting the tire back to the rim is a difficult job. I will show you the best way to do it without special tools. As any repair I perform, I always prefer the easiest path with minimal removal and the least adjustment.

You may choose either to patch the hole or to replace the inner tube. Patching the hole requires the least amount of re-adjustment.

If you choose to replace the inner tube, don’t remove the brake pads to minimize the repair efforts.

Most bike tires are very tight to put on the rim. The key observation is the center line of the rim has the smallest diameter, thus the tire beads to pushed to the center to make largest tolerance to allow the tire to be installed on the rim. Also move the air plug to upper position to allow easy installation.

Absolute Minimal Removal of Idle Air Control & Install New IAC

Absolute Minimal Removal of Idle Air Control (IAC) & Install New IAC

My previous video has shown less IAC related removal when cleaning the IAC. This time it is the absolute minimal removal! It only took 3 minutes to remove the old IAC. Then you will have the option of cleaning it or installing a new one. I installed the new one in 5 minutes. Of course, the PCM idle learn procedure would take another 7 minutes.
This is Honda Accord 2004, my previous cleaning only lasted 2 months. My previous cleaning was to spray the IAC (Idle Air Control unit (IAC), that worked but was not thorough nor complete. This time I will replace the IAC with a new one.
