Question
"how do you put a back tire on a 200cc roketa dirt bike without damaging the inner tube?????"

Answer
Calvin, Dont use screwdrivers as the sharp corners will take out the tube. Use some soapy water and make sure that there isnt a bead lock. Squeeze the tire beads togethor then start working the tire bead over the rim and work your way around the rim and pull the tube out and take the opposite side of the tire off the rim.
