    Using liquid latex in tyres and TPMS

    Since I bought my TTSE it has had a very slow leak in the rear tyre, meaning that I have to put a few psi in the tyre every couple of weeks. I have thought about putting in some of this liquid latex to fix it but haven't because of the same doubt mentioned by PJS  in the thread https://www.triumph-trophy.com/index.php/topic,7929.0.html
    namely that it might affect the TPMS. Has anyone done this with success or does anyone know if the TPMS will be affected?

    I don't know if the TPMS would be affected, as there doesn't seem to be any information
    as to whether the TPMS Sensors are "hermetically sealed".

    Maybe an email to : after.sales@triumph.co.uk might answer the question.

    Meanwhile it is worth checking that the actual Valve core is screwed in tight,
    or even replacing it with a new one, as they can be the cause of minor leaks,
    and consider having the tyre taken off, amd the rim cleaned up in case there's
    any crud built up on the inside of the rim where the tyre bead seals.

    It all goes to show why it's important to check your tyre pressures regularly,
    and before each day's riding.  :169:

    I've never trusted slow leaks to stay slow, so I always use some soapy water all over the tire and valve stem and rims just to know for sure why it's leaking and how to fix it.

    I like the idea, but how are you going to manage with number 8 of the instruction: "The faster you drive, the quicker the Ride-On will spread and coat your tires", since the new speedlimit in the Netherlands is a countrywide 100 km/h from the 1th of January '20?

    I'm 'on the fence' about such liquid substances that live in a tyre, some motorcycle owners have wheel balancing issues with the stuff, others don't?? Apart from that, will it corrode the wheel in years to come?....I know that most tyre depots hate the stuff when replacing tyres.

    I have used a can of Holts repair stuff after getting a flat on a bike with an inner tube, amazing that worked well and that can I had bought 30+ years ago!

    All these products could be a great 'get you home' measure but I wouldn't feel comfortable until a professional 'welded' bung were fitted from the inside or a new tyre fitted.
