Tips to perform tyre installation 

1.The tube must loads  by little air before put inside the tyre.The reason to be doing this is to prevent the tube clutched by tire . (Always happened)

2.put some oil on the side of the tire so that can make easier for tyre   installing

How to use a tyre lever

I found this in internet,I think it’s the way how to use a tyre lever ,although this was presented to bicycle but it’s similar for motorcycle tyre.

Step 1

Insert the flat part of the lever between the tire sidewall and wheel rim. Pull down on the lever to pry up the sidewall, and attach the hooked end of the lever to a wheel spoke.

Step 2

Slip the second lever into the space you just pried up next to the first lever. Pull down on the lever to push up the tire sidewall.

Step 3

Grip the wheel firmly and slide the second lever along the wheel rim. Some force will be needed, but you should be able to pry out the tire sidewall from the wheel rim.

Step 4

Remove both levers once one sidewall has been pulled out. Insert one lever from the same side, under the tire and tube and outside the opposite tire wall.

Step 5

Apply pressure to the lever and slide it along the wheel rim to pull the tire off the wheel.
