Inspect the rim and tire, and replace them if necessary.
Install the tube band and tube.
Apply a soap and water solution, or rubber lubricant to the
rim flange and tire beads.
Position the front tire on the rim so that the valve [A] is
at the tire balance mark [B] (the chalk mark made during
removal, or the white paint mark on a new tire. see Re-
moval).
Insert the valve stem into the rim, and screw the nut on
loosely.
Fit the rim protectors and use tire irons to install the tire
bead.
To prevent rim damage, be sure to place the rim protec-
tors at any place the tire irons are applied.
Pry one side of the tire back onto the rim. Fit the bead
protector into the tire.
Pry the other side of the tire onto the rim, starting at the
side opposite the valve.
Take care not to insert the tire irons so deeply that the

same manner.

rim.
