Hello everyone, in this tutorial, we will go through the process of changing the tire and inner tube on the rear wheel of a VSETT9 scooter.
You will see that it is a repair that can be easily done, and if you have any tips or questions, feel free to leave a comment. It will surely help someone in a similar situation as yours.
Removing the Rear Wheel
Before we begin removing the punctured rear wheel, let’s start by unscrewing the two small screws that hold the motor cable in place using a 2.5mm Allen wrench.
Next, remove the plastic covers and then unscrew the two nuts of the rear wheel using an 18mm wrench.
Once the nuts are sufficiently loosened, spread apart the two locking washers and remove the wheel from the rear fork.
Removing the Brake Disc
Now, let’s unscrew the 6 screws of the brake disc using a 4mm Allen wrench.
Opening the Rim in Half
After removing the brake disc, we need to remove the 6 screws of the rim using a 4mm Allen wrench to access our punctured inner tube.
But before unscrewing the rim, always check that there is no air left inside the tire by pressing the valve core.
Now we can pull the tire of our VSETT 9 upwards.
And remove the half rim from the tire. If the half rim doesn’t come off easily, you can press firmly on the edges of the tire to detach it from the rim.
Next, we can remove the punctured inner tube.
Installing the New Inner Tube
Now, let’s move on to installing our new tire and inner tube. The tire size is 8.5×3.0, and the inner tube to be installed inside is an 8.5×2 with a 70/90 angled valve.

We’ll double-check the tire’s rotation direction and install our slightly inflated new inner tube inside.
Closing the Rim
To facilitate reassembly, apply a small drop of liquid soap to the rim and the inner edges of the tire.
Install the first part of the rim onto the tire, being extremely careful not to let any part of the inner tube touch the light gray part. It would be unfortunate to pinch our new inner tube while closing everything and having to start over.
Now, slide the valve into its housing and properly position the tire.
Tighten everything by reattaching the 6 screws gradually.
Next, place the brake disc back onto the rear wheel, ensuring the correct rotation direction using the arrow engraved on the disc.
Installing the Repaired Rear Wheel on the Fork
Now, slide the repaired rear wheel onto the fork with the locking washers pointing forward.
Reattach the motor cable to the scooter.
