Full guide to replace the rear wheel of the SpeedTrott RS1600+
Using an 18mm wrench, unscrew the first nut to the left of the wheel and remove the washer.
With a small wire cutter, cut the two cable ties that secure the motor cable to the rear fork.
Remove the black rubber cover and unscrew the second nut of the rear wheel. Remember to hold the wheel from the bottom and place it on its side.
Unscrew the 6 screws on the rim using a 4mm Allen wrench. Remember to deflate your inner tube before removing these 6 screws!
Take your tyre and simply pull it straight up to remove it from its position.
Unscrew the valve cap of your old inner tube and retrieve the half-rim.
Take your new 10×2.50 tyre and your new inner tube (with a 90° angled valve). Remove the valve cap and any valve nuts if present.
Check the direction of rotation of the tyre and insert the inner tube inside. Tip: To ensure you don’t mount the tire upside down, install the inner tube with the valve pointing towards the side of the tire with the red line.
Pass the valve of your inner tube through the hole in the rim.
Inflate the inner tube very slightly to ensure it fits properly inside the tire.
Tighten everything back onto the motor of your SpeedTrott.
Inflate your tire (we recommend between 2.75 and 3.45 bars).
PRO TIP: Utilize a valve extension equipped with a check valve to conveniently connect your pump or compressor to the valve. This will enhance the ease of inflating the tire.
Reinstall your repaired rear wheel onto the fork and tighten the two nuts, ensuring the washers are in place.
Lastly, reattach the nut cover and secure the motor cable to the fork using two new cable ties.
Well done! You have successfully changed the rear tire of your SpeedTrott RS1600+ on your own.
