Taking Care of the Unexpected
If You Have a Flat Tire
How you handle a flat tire on the trail depends on how serious the
tire damage is, and what tools and supplies you have with you.
If you have a slow leak or a minor puncture, use the plug method to
make a temporary repair. (The plug method is applied from the
outside of the tire and is the same as that for conventional tubeless
A plug-type repair kit, available at most auto parts stores or service
stations, provides a plug, an installation tool, tire cement, and an
instruction sheet. Follow the instructions provided with the repair kit
to make a temporary repair.
As soon as possible, have the tire permanently repaired by your
dealer. Any tire that cannot be repaired should be replaced.
Whenever the ATV is to be operated far from service facilities or
available transportation, we recommend that you carry a tire pump
and a repair kit.
If the leak is more serious, or a temporary repair doesn’t hold, the
tire must be replaced. The tire will also need to be replaced if it is
damaged (page 131). Replacing a tire involves removing and re-
installing the wheel (page 169).
