Does anyone else beside me have to add air pressure every 3 – 4 weeks? Is this normal? TPMS flashes low air pressure. I run 42 in the rear and it was down 4 so at 38, its enough to trip the sensor. Front was down a few also so I topped it off at 40. Seems weird to me, Maybe the heat has something to do with it and now it’s cooling down or could it be these rims?

BTW: The Slime Power Sport Tire Inflator works great. Aired it right up. Excellent to have on board. Works off the battery tender harness. Very compact.

Ambient temp changes can do some of this!
It is not unusual to require air often in MC tires. I have no idea why this would happen and not generally w/cage tires on cages. Have wondered why often.
The car tires on the back of my trike seem to maintain pressure a lot longer than the MT on the front!

Try a little extra torque on the valve stem core. Pick up one of these from the local Auto Store...........

I have had this issue twice with the '10 and the '12. I think Chopin is correct, because I notice this condition toward the end of tire life. I hadn't thought about it until I saw Chopin's post. So, I am guessing maybe the vibration is allowing the stems to loosen enough to slowly leak air... Chopin, you are a genius.;)

I have to add air if the Wing sits for a couple of weeks. Just always check before riding and make it part of the ritual..
