"Is their any problems with these tires? The most common problem I've heard from SOME people is that the front tires loose a little air pressure over time. Why, nobody seems to know? I personally seem to loose about 3-5lbs a week (AT MOST). It seems worse (closer to 5lbs every 3 days) IF the weather is very cold?! Why? I have no idea! (pressure and temperature) The dealer told me they had a problem with a couple people having this accrue in the wet northwest but that was about it."

FWIW I live in the mid-Atlantic region and this is happening to my front tire (tubeless on F650GS) ever since I had it mounted. Took it back and we discovered a very slight leak on both sides of the rim at the same place. Removed tire, scrubbed and wiped everything, remounted with no change whatsoever. Guess I'll just fill 5lbs every 3-5 days.
