Front wheel Wayscral Kickway E1
Today, we will see together how to change the tire and inner tube of a Wayscral Kickway E1 electric scooter.
required tools :
- a socket or a 19mm wrench
- a 5mm Allen wrench
- a 3mm Allen wrench
Tire and Inner Tube Explanation
Regarding the tires:
If your tire is really worn out, you can replace it with either an original 50/75-6.1 tire or a tire with a size of 8 1/2 x 2.
For the inner tube, it should have a size of 8 1/2 x 2 L with a bent valve of 70/90.
“70” simply means that the valve is bent at a 70° angle,
And “90” means that the valve is oriented at a 90° angle towards the outside of the inner tube.
Be careful with these inner tubes. To our knowledge, there are two types, and it’s very easy to make a mistake when trying to purchase them:
8 1/2 x 2L inner tubes – compatible for both front and rear
8 1/2 x 2 inner tubes – compatible only for the front
So, if you are looking for a new inner tube for your Wayscral Kickway E1 scooter, the best option is to choose an 8 1/2 x 2L inner tube with a bent valve of 70/90 and an inner diameter of 15cm.
Removing the Front Wheel
Now, let’s begin. Using a flat wrench or a 19mm socket, unscrew the two blind nuts on the left and right sides of the front wheel.
Pull the wheel down to remove it from the fork.
Retrieve the two washers located on the wheel axle.
The two washers are not the same size. The one on the side of the brake disc is smaller than the one on the other side.
Removing the Brake Disc
Remove the brake disc by unscrewing the 6 small screws using a 3mm Allen wrench.
Splitting the Rim in Two and Freeing the punctured Inner Tube
Remove the valve cap and completely deflate the air from the inner tube. It is crucial to check this before unscrewing your rim.
Using a 5mm Allen wrench, unscrew the 6 screws on the rim.
Now, the rim is in two parts, and you can free the punctured tire and inner tube.
Installing the New Inner Tube
Take the new inner tube and inflate it very slightly.
Double-check the tire’s direction of rotation. The arrows should point towards the front of the scooter, and the direction of rotation is always indicated on the side of the tire.
Place the new inner tube inside the tire.
Insert the valve of the inner tube into its housing and center the first part of the rim in the middle of the tire.
Next, ensure that no part of the inner tube touches the gray part of the rim. Then, close everything up.
Here, we have replaced it with an original 50/75-6.1 tire, but you could also install an 8 1/2 x 2 CST V3 tire, which we believe has better traction on the ground.
Wayscral Kickway E1 Tire Pressure
You can inflate your tire between 2.5 and 3.5 bars depending on your weight and the riding sensations you want to experience.
Reassembling the Repaired Front Wheel onto the Scooter
Screw the brake disc back onto the wheel, and usually, the direction of rotation is indicated on the disc. If it’s not indicated, you can look at the disc’s pins, which should point towards the ground when you ride.
Place the large washer to the right of the wheel and the smaller washer to the left, on the side of the brake disc.
The final step is to reattach the front wheel of your Wayscral Kickway E1 to the front fork and secure it by screwing the two nuts on the left and right sides of the axle.
