Changing your tyres and fixing punctures
This is a guide on how to change your tyres on your AM1/AMX.
Front wheel removal
Start by unbolting the two wheel axle bolts using a 15mm spanner
You can then slide the wheel down.
Rear wheel removal
Start by disconnecting the rear motor cable, you may have to snap the zipties that hold the cable in place to do so.
You can then use a 19mm spanner to undo the two rear wheel axle bolts
You can then slide down the wheel, make sure your chain/belt is off the wheel before you pull the wheel completely off.
Make sure you re-connect the rear motor cable and use new zipties to hold it close to the chain-stay before you ride your bike.
Changing the tyre
Once the wheel is off use a Bike Tyre Lever to get the tyre off. You only need to remove one side of the tyre if you need to replace the inner tube. For
