    Staun beadlock install

    So I have installed a couple sets of these. I think they are a GREAT product!!. Installation is pretty simple.

    Here is the beadlock, tube and the valve stem.



    The first step is to prep the rim for installation, by locating and drilling the hole for the beadlock tube. Staun has some guidlines for this included in the instructions.




    During the rim prep step you should also clean the outer lip of the rim so that there is NO sharp edges. This is so that you do not tare the tube or the beadlock. I used a file for this.



    Once the rim is ready you install the first bead of the tire onto the rim. I also install the balancing beads at this time. Using some wood blocks, I prop up the tire to give some working room.



    You need to prep the tube and beadlock with the powder that comes in the package. This is too alow the tube to sit nicly inside the beadlock. I do this with a little bit of air in the tube to make it easier, then release the air.




    Once the powder has been put on you can slip the first (inner bead) of the beadlock into place.



    Followed by the tube. Insert the tube valve through the hole you made earlier add tighten the nut finger tight.

    Once the tube is installed you can slip the last lip (outer bead) of the beadlock into place. You must be very gental not to tare the beadlock. Using the drop in the rim (like installing a tire) is the only way to get the beadlock to fit without damaging it.




    Make sure the tube is inside the beadlock all the way around. A quick inspection will confirm this, you might even have to feel for it.

    The next step is to install the supplied valve stem.



    The valve stem come with 2 different seals to fit the rim. You must pick the correct one to fit the rim.

    Once the valve stem is installed you can install the outer bead of the tire, being very carefull not to damage it. Tire tools are not recomended. It is best to be done on a tire machine, starting just after the valve.




    Once the outer tire bead is on you use the beadlock to set the bead by inflating the tube to 50psi. Then the tire to 20psi and release the air to confirm no restrictions. When all the air is out of the tire you then proceed to remove the air from the beadlock tube to allow the tube to relax and sit nice. Then fill the tube to 50psi and snug the nut for the valve, followed by setting the proper preasure in the tire.

    Hope this helps.

    I had a set of InnerAir Beadlocks (not Stuan) bought from a member here. What sucks is 2 out of the 5 bags tore during install, so I said screw it and went for convention beadrings as I am sure they work and no flaw are hiding out of site.

    Good rite up though. Not saying I would never go back to them.

    These things are tough.. as long as your gental putting the last (outer) bead on they won't rip. Beside if they stop hold air its just a new inner tube for all of 20 bucks.
