Tire repair K-1300s, 2009
I've got a very slow leak in the rear tire of my 2009 K-1300s. It's a Michelin Pilot Road 2 with lots of life left on it. I can fill it to 42 psi and ride it and it will lose 3-4 psi in an hour. If left parked it doesn't go completely flat, stopping at 18 psi or so.
I'm wondering if anyone has experience using "ride-on" tire sealant, made for motorcycle tires? If so I'd like to hear from you. Also, the instructions for "ride-on" say to watch out for TPMS issues, that if the TPMS does not have "potted" electronics, it can mess up the sensor. It seems the TPMS sensor would be potted, but I don't know for sure.
Thanks for your comments!
