    Slow leak on the 1025r...second one

    Got a slow leak in another one of my R4s Last one was a sharp alder piercing a front.

    This time itís a rear under the gas tank side. Drops 5 or so pounds a day. Canít find a thing.... done the soapy water, cleaned it and rubbed all over, magnet with no luck. anybody have a tech tip on locating a leak?

    Soapy water in a spray bottle is my go to.
    Sounds like youíve explored that, you did check the valve stem, correct?

    Have you checked the valve core, bead & once in a blue moon, Iíve found the rim to be leaking. Rim really has to be in bad shape. If that doesnít do it, youíll need to submerge part of the wheel under water.

    Soapy water yes... no luck

    Valve core no... how do I do that? Check that itís tight?

    Rims look mint. How do I check ? More soapy water?

    Thanks

    Check the valve core to see if it is tight. If you're having one of these "can't find it" problems, I'd also recommend that you just replace the valve core. They're cheap and sometimes they leak even if they're tight.

    Take the cap off and pour the soapy water on the stem. When checking with soapy water, Iíve had the best luck pouring the water on and not spray it on. The tires already have low psi in them & pouring the soapy water on does not really introduce any small bubbles on the tire. I would air the tires up to at least 30lbs, to aid in creating bubbles. The added air psi is not going to hurt anything, since you are not going to drive it anywhere.

    Let us know what you find out!

    You know maybe it is the valve core... it has always held air poorly compared to the others but now that winter is here the cold air is making it worse.

    Are the cores generic and sold at Napa or should I go to deere for one?

    Cool advice thanks everyone.

    Just to be clear the valve core is the metal insert that I unscrew from the inside of the stem right ?
