My fear is that i dont know how the rear wheel gets its power from the mid motor drive yamaha?

Im guessing there is certain chords on the back wheel that i may destroy, removing the back wheel for a tube switch?

Mid-drive motors drive the chain, which makes them more convenient for tire repair since there's no hub motor in the wheel to deal with. Any local bike shop (LBS) can take care of the flat for you. Ask them if you can watch so you'll know how to do it on your own next time.

No idea what you mean by certain chords? There might be a magnetic sensor on the spoke, but not even close to the tire. I think you're confusing a hub motor and mid drive complexity. What are you planing to do if you have a flat on the road? Carry the bike back to town and the bike shop?

Rolling it back is not an option for me when I'm 15-20 miles from home. First learn how to remove the wheel, then learn how to repair a tube. Again, what does certain chords mean?

You're lucky to be riding a mid drive. Changing a flat will be a breeze.. No wires and the wheel is normal weight...

The following is only what I've read and I have not personally experienced this because I don't have hydraulic brakes: If your bike has hydraulic brakes, and if there's air in the line then there's the possibility that the air can move to the brakes instead of staying up in the reservoir at the handlebars when turned upside down. This can lead to brake failure. However, if the brake system was properly bled then there shouldn't be a problem when turning the bike upside down to work on the wheel. Again, this only applies to hydraulic brakes.

I don't have an ebike yet, but my handlebars are loaded with electronics that would get in the way of the bike being turned upside down for wheel maintenance. I remove whatever has a quick release like my cyclometer and headlight. The waterproof case for my generic GoPro is a pain to completely remove so I just loosen it enough so it can be angled out of the way and not make contact with the ground. I'm guessing with your bike the LCD display is going to be the issue, so you'll have to check and see if it can be angled enough so it doesn't make contact whether that involves loosening the handlebar brackets or not I don't know. Talk it over with your LBS and get his or her thoughts.

I read you cant put an ebike upside down. How will you change a rear tire then?
I've owned two hub motor bikes and changed the rear tire on both of them by turning the bike upside down.. The key is protect whatever is on your handlebars with a bag or a shirt or whatever.
