A common mistake made when upgrading the air in your tires is forgetting to reconnect you battery after the mod is complete.
I hope this solves your problem Mike.

Ok I got it. Apparently there's a new feature on these late model bikes where you have to turn the key to start it. Those crazy Japanese people.

I just fill my tires with distilled water! It lasts much longer and it's easy to see when you have a leak! Making the bike lighter only means it will come off the ground easier, you don't want to come off the ground in a turn do you?

That's where experience and training come into play. That's why I hang out at PP1, to get expert advice from true riding professionals.

No, this is a highly technical process. I would recommend you only have professionals change your air. You don't want to put Ninja 250 air in your Busa as it could negatively impact your pose factor.

I am sure some of our sponsors can hook you up with the right air for your tires. Its a lot cheaper to have them do it right the first time than to have them correct your mistake.

Everyone knows you use pressurized cabbage farts to fill your tires with. That's the best way to know when you get a leak.

You can keep your fancy upgrades and let the pros do it the right way.
