1190 Adventure slow leak on rear tire
 
Started up the bike yesterday and the magic low tire pressure alarm was in.
Down to 10lbs from day before.
Topped it up and went for a ride.
When in motion tire held pressure....every stop tho it would lose a couple of psi.
Ive checked for punctures,snooped around and can find nothing.
I've never had tubeless tire....researching a bit it seems KTM has had a bit of an issue with the spoke sealing band.
Wondering just how common this has been...

FYI this is a good resource for finding out about all issues related to whichever KTM you have. IMO a slow leak on a tire question should be here> http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=906504
Not something that needs its own thread!:deal

+1

Could be leaking through the spokes? Friend of mines tyre (conti) had a punture and he had to fit a gator from the inside (looks like a mushroom) as the normal tyre repair kept leaking because of high speed riding.

2 in one day in the section where it is usually fairly reasonable!

Hey Mad - I had the same issue on my front tire - first noticed on the way home from the dealership. I kept adding air until the first service, where spokes were checked and adjusted; no issue since. Good luck with the fix!

Thanks for replies...
As I'm working next 6 days I dropped it off at dealer.
It'll get looked at Monday.
KTM can foot the bill...

Ignoring the mudslinging.....The only way to diagnose tubeless tire leak problems is to remove the wheel and submerge it in a tank of water--a large cooler works getting a portion of the rim and you can rotate to catch it all. Check valve core/stem, bead, spokes and punctures. That is all there is to it.

Lots of these "problems" are valve core issues. Always "spit check" the core before proceeding.

Or call AAA.......sorry couldn't resist.

Good advice here...
