Continual pressure loss
« on: November 15, 2020, 04:26:17 PM »
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
