you all are idiots.


he is obviously running summer air in his tires and we hit winter weather.

you need to flush the tires and fill w winter air. done. wasn't that hard was it?


lol JK.... gsxrjai had a good point, you can get a small tank and fill that way but would take a few trips to do so... I'd say hopefully there is a close gas station w working air pump you can limp it over to. GL!

glad you didn't go any higher, becuase at 187psi, the tire explodes and then condenses back down on itsself so fast it'll suck up the bike in a mini black-hole of tire failure

mix up some jb weld and turn the littl cap clockwise... it'll stay on then... the rear tire has a different procedure. put the bike on a stand, start it, put the bike in 3rd gear, you have to put the valve stem cap on while the tire is moving or it won't stay on... good luck

That's what I did this weekend....I flushed out the summer air and reinstalled the winter air. I got a full compressor of winter air at the house if anybody needs any!!!
