What is a tire seal and why is it important?
The tire seal, also known as a tire bead, refers to the edge of the tire that sits on the edge of the wheel. Wheels for vehicles have a small groove design where the tire bead rests. If it is not inflated properly, the air pressure can keep the tire bead in this space. In turn, it can cause damage, most commonly leading to a leak along the rim.
Can I use soapy water to lubricate my Motorcycle rims?
This Tech Tip applies to any motorcycle with aluminum rims: If you decide to change your own tires, you can safely use soapy water as a lubricant to dismount the old tire and mount the new tire. However, if your rim is made of anything other than chrome plated or stainless steel, I do not advise you to use soapy water.
How do you fix a leaking tire with no bubbles?
Spray a mix of soapy water on the area along the rim you suspect is leaking. When doing this, make sure to focus on the area between the tire and the rim. Bubbles should appear anywhere there is a leak. If you spray around the entire rim and still see no bubbles, then the leak may be elsewhere in your tire.
