The whole process takes between 5-10 mins for experienced guys, 15-20mins for beginners. Promise you, this is not rocket science. It's really easy. This method is recommended by technicians from the factory and only works for the latest series of motor hubs, which are called split motor.  To prevent this process put green slime or some other puncture protector in the tube before riding!

Here is how a split motor looks like from the outiside and inside

Remove nut from both left and right side. This is the part where it holds the motor together. Take note, there are no wires to detach, please do not remove any wiring.

Step 2-Unscrew the disc brake

We have seen many cases where users do not need to change the inner tube, you can just patch it up with a sealant, that will work as well.

Step 6 -Pump Air

Pump just enough for you to put it back to the motor, just a little will do, remember, you can always pump more later. 

Step 7 - Install tire to motor

This is the EASIEST. Just reverse the whole process to put your tyre back to the motor.
