Changing the Tire

The front tire on the KLR has little tread. A new tire arrived today; ordered online and saved.

I want to know if the tire can  be changed using only the tools from the factory tool kit.

There were tools to remove the tire and I used the handles to pry the old tire off the rim.

The tube valve stem has rust so it also gets replaced.

The new tire is on.  I used only the tool kit and a small hammer.  This is good to know that I could change the tire or repair a flat even beside the road.

    I’ve changed a tire or three out on the road. Where do you live, I live in Pocola, OK. Maybe we can get together and ride sometime.
