Need your opinions. Slow leak

5261 Views 10 Replies 6 Participants Last post by  fotomoto
I discovered that my rear tire has a slow leak today. About 2 .psi every 3+ hours or so.

I examined the tire today and could not find any nails, screws, or any foreign objects lodged in the tire but is definitely a slow leak. It's really weird. The tire only has about 500 street miles on it.

I was thinking about using some 'Flat Fix' tomorrow just to get it through the first part of winter and was wondering if any of you have any experience with that. I just want to keep the tire on there until I swap it out for my Jennings track day in January I will eventually put a new tire on there but didn't want to throw it on so early.

Anybody ever used Flat Fix on a motorcycle tire before?

I would consider a couple of pounds per week a slow leak.

I picked up some glass shards in my 51's rear tire on a long day ride. Came out of the cafe after lunch to find the bike standing nearly straight up after the rear went completely flat. I was about 50 miles from home with no tire repair kit so fix-a-flat was the answer.

Side note: three hardley f*cks were eating at the same cafe and we parked in the next slot by them. They left before us but not one of them came back in to tell us about the flat or that it was about to fall over (very windy day). :banghead

Yup it makes a mess:
