Slow Punctures

Post by anwarg » Sat Apr 12, 2014 5:50 am

My 1500SE has slow punctures on both tyres. After about three weeks the tyres are flat. I have a 12V pump which I use to inflate them but it's a big nuisance. I'm considering starting to tackle the problem by removing the front wheel and checking the rim but I just don't seem to find the time.

Does anybody have any quick-fix ideas?

Mix a spray bottle of soapy water and spray around valve stem. Easy enough to raise bike, roll wheels and spray solution on and watch for bubbles.
