    Hi my wifes S100xr is continually losing air pressure. tyre was old so we changed it but it wasnt that.
    Anyone had a tyre valve cause this? On cars I have had the alloys start to leak as they needed painting/refurbishing. Anyone needed to to do this?

    Surely the tyre fitter installed a new valve?

    Bit of soapy water looking for bubbles first, I know Motorworks do them and have used them in the past.

    As above, soapy water will show bubbles where it is leaking

    My experience from mounting my own tires has been that if I am meticulous about cleaning the bead of the rim and tire, I would get very little to no air loss.  When someone else mounts my tires, they aren’t always as careful.
