TIRES
Damage to the rim flanges and tire beads spoil the
airtightness of tubeless tires and rims.
When handling
tubeless tires and
rims,
be careful not to damage the
air-sealing surfaces.
See the Maintenance Section for
detailed information regarding tubeless tires
(Pg.
212).
The following explanation covers tire removal and
installation using bead
breaker,
rim
protectors,
and tire
irons (special tools)
.
If tires are to be removed and
installed using a tire changer, operate it in the manner
prescribed by
the
manufacturer.
NOTE: A tire changer suitable for tubeless and tube-
ty pe
tires is available as a Kawasaki special tool.
