How to Change an Electric Scooter Inner Tube: A Step-by-Step Guide

Flat tires are an inevitable part of life for every electric scooter owner, and at some point, you will need to change an inner tube. But don't panic! You don't need to be a master technician – just follow our step-by-step guide to change your electric scooter inner tube with ease.

  1. Gather necessary tools: You will need tire levers, a new electric scooter inner tube, a pump, a wrench, and some soapy water.

  2. Remove the scooter wheel: Start by unplugging the motor cables from the wheel if your scooter has a motorized wheel. Turn off the scooter, loosen the nuts on either side of the wheel with the wrench, and remove the wheel.

  3. Deflate the old inner tube: Once the wheel is removed, unscrew the valve cap on the inner tube. Use the tire lever to press the valve and release any remaining air from the old tube.

  4. Remove the outer tire: Insert the tire lever between the rim and the tire bead (the edge of the tire that keeps it on the rim). Lever the tire bead over the rim edge and hold it in place with the tire lever. Use a second tire lever to pry more of the bead over the rim until the tire is loose enough to remove by hand.

  5. Remove the inner tube: With the outer tire removed, you can now easily access the inner tube. First, remove the valve from the valve hole, and then gently pull out the rest of the inner tube from inside the tire.

  6. Inspect for damage: Before installing the new electric scooter inner tube, give your tire an inspection to ensure there are no remaining sharp objects that may puncture the new tube.

  7. Install the new inner tube: Inflate the new tube slightly to give it some shape; this helps with positioning it inside the tire. Insert the valve into the valve hole, and then gradually push the rest of the tube inside the tire, ensuring that it's correctly aligned with the tire and rim.

  8. Reattach the outer tire: Fit the tire bead over the rim by starting at the opposite side of the valve. You may need to use the tire levers to help push the bead back over the rim. Ensure that the new inner tube isn't pinched or twisted.

  9. Inflate the new inner tube: Use the pump to inflate the tube to the recommended pressure (usually printed on the tire sidewall). Make sure the tire is seated correctly on the rim as you inflate it.

  10. Reattach the scooter wheel: Reverse the process of removing the wheel to reattach it to the scooter. Tighten the nuts with your wrench and reconnect the motor cables if required.

Congratulations! You have successfully changed your electric scooter inner tube, and your scooter is ready to roll again!
