Hey all. I googled help for pocket bikes and found this sight. My cousin gave me his 60cc bike and I finally got it started. It has both front and rear flats. I've seen in the forum that green slime will help me put air in. I have a compressor and tried with out any slime and the air won't hold. My question is how do I find out if I have tubeless or tubes tires? Total newbie to this but not to adrenaline. Thanks in advance


I have the side panels off in the pic

Hey straydawg I actually did see your thread about that. And by ratchet strap those are those thick tie downs with the big buckles (ratchet part). I assume I have to do this with the tire off?

Yes tightening them up forces the side walls to the rim and this is how to seat the bead at the rim with a fast blast of air and sometimes you will even hear kinda of a popping sound when the bead seats just make sure you let enough air in to seat it which may be 70 + pounds than let air out to what it says on the side of the tire..
