I think you will find that it has a tubeless setup as they don't usually run tubes in those bikes. Your gonna need a beadbreaker for a start, your better off takin it to your local bike shop! Only cheap and you won't get any busted knuckles!! ------

Yep, dealer item. You can do it but why? When was the last time you fixed a flat on a car tire? ------

It's cheaper if you take in just the wheel instead of the entire bike.Put the bike on a crate or stand so the back tire is elevated. Give the tension bolts on both sides of the swing are about a half a turn counter clockwise. Pull the pin out of the rod and unscrew the nut. It should be on the left side. The nut will be very tight most likely so you may need to get an adjustable or socket on there and give it a few whacks to loosen it.Now you can shimmy the rod completely out of the wheel. Get the chain from around the sprocket and bring the wheel to the shop.In reality though doing it yourself only saves you about 5 to 10 bucks. If you're a do it yourselfer it is just something to do to be a part of the process.I doubt there's a tube in a rebel tire and patching a motorcycle tire is never a good idea. ------
