Introduction

Use this guide to replace an old or flat tire on your Solowheel Original electric self-balancing unicycle.

Before you begin, have a jar or can available to put all of the screws in. It is very important to know where the screws are, as you will need all of them to securely put your unicycle back together.

If you do not use all of the screws when putting the unicycle back together it poses a safety hazard and could result in injury or death when riding the unicycle.

After replacing the tire, I suggest pumping up the tire fully and waiting a few minutes to see if there are any air leaks. Once you're sure that the tire isn't defective, go ahead and start the process of putting the unicycle back together.

Lay the Solowheel down with the side containing the battery facing up.
