Front flat xl650r

Recommended Posts

So I jumped on the brp to head to the gym this morning...and noted a soft front tire...damnit!!! Removed and checked both tire and tube for objects..found none. Water tested the tube for 15 minutes...no leaks discernable. So...I cleaned everything and reapplied the tube and tire. Inflated to 40 psi and see what it looks like on the morrow. Perplexing...

perhaps the schrader valve had debris holding it open and was cleared when reinflated?

What is an XL650R?

 

I didn't know Honda ever made one of those.

 

 

I lose air in my front tire.  Something to do with the tube.  Have to pump it back up every week or two.  I never worried too much about it, but need to check it regularly.

Don't tease him Scott, he has thin skin!

 

His tube does, you mean.

 

I have seen my front go very soft almost overnight, pump it up and it's fine for months.

 

I vote the valve, too.

 

Not the same thing, but I returned from a ride, parked the bike, went out to ride it again a few weeks later (this was back when I got out once every 5-6 weeks), and the valve stem was ripped out.

What the heck?
