PostSubject: Slow front tire leak   Freddy's tire leak I_icon_minitimeSat Jul 27, 2019 8:05 pm

Hey everyone. Freddyblue from San Francisco with my newly gifted 03 Silverwing. New question. I have a slow leak in the front tire. I am taking my scooter to the shop this week to swap out front end forks cause mine are downright dangerously played. Probably the right time to deal with the leak. Since this is occurring at a labor rate of $140 an hour, wondering what has to be done to address the leak and how much time this adds to my bill. Thanks everyone.

It depends on what's causing the leak. If it's a bad valve core that's easy to diagnose and change. You can do that with some soapy water and put some on the valve stem. If it bubbles it's leaking. Put a good one in. A leak around the bead is pretty much a shop item. If you picked up a nail that's probably also a shop item and a new tire.

First check age of tire (safety) old=get new, make sure if you are, getting fresh tire in proper size, and if you do not install yourself, make sure shop wire brushes bead area well and on old bike replaces valve stem and inflates tire to proper pressure See owner's book for this.

Now as to swap out front forks---never heard done, unless the bike has about 200,000 miles or so....maybe you should check with Honda expert on that. By the way, in almost all cases Honda Dealer is best bet---they may actually seen a SilverWing before.
