Tires Inspection

As the tire tread wears down, the tire becomes more sus-
ceptible the puncture and failure.
Remove any imbedded stones or other foreign particles
from the tread.
Visually inspect the tire for cracks and cuts, replacing the
tire in case of bad damage. Swelling or high spots indi-
cate internal damage, requiring tire replacement.
Some replacement tires may adversely affect han-
dling and cause an accident resulting in serious in-
jury or death. To ensure proper handling and sta-
bility, use only the recommended standard tires for
replacement, inflated to the standard pressure.
Check and balance the wheel when a tire is replaced
with a new one.

Spoke Tightness Inspection

Check that all the spokes are tightened evenly.
If spoke tightness is uneven or loose, tighten the spoke
nipples evenly.
Torque - Spoke Nipples: 4.0 N·m (0.41 kgf·m, 35 in·lb)
Check the rim runout (see Rim Runout Inspection).
A missing spoke places an additional load on
the other spokes, which will eventually cause
other spokes to break, creating the potential for
an accident resulting in serious injury or death.
Immediately replace any broken spoke(s).
