Then do it the lazy way. Get a spray bottle put some dish soap and warm water in it. Lay on the ground and spray it all over. You will see little tiny bubble. It might take 15 minutes but it will bubble up. The dish soap will coat the tire and a small leak will produce very small bubbles. Spray it and walk away. When you come back you will see a streak of little bubbles. Worst case you now have a clean tire and wheel. Yes check the wheel. The air can leak thru the metal. And pump it up more. Try 50 to 60 lbs if you don't find it at 41.
Don't get lazy on us a ride on a bad tire. You might not make it thru to the other side when it decides to become a big leak.

Words to live by. I tried the soapy water and it is losing about 2 lbs per day. I will pump it higher and try that. I won't get lazy, I'll just replace it.

I don’t remember reading on here whether anybody mentioned the actual valve stem and whether it has been changed or not because the rubber will deteriorate over time and as a rule you should change the valve stem every two tire changes if you’re using the stock valve stems. Are use the heavier duty steel ones which will last a lot longer. Even then I usually change those out after the third tire. I had the same issue with my rear tire and it turned out to be the valves stem. At first I thought it was the core, but changing that had no effect. I always carry a spare valve stem cores, But I will be adding the actual valve stem to my little parts box in the saddlebag.
