Henk, this won't bother me...I just need to learn how to avoid the cameras  :015:



Ken,

You should be happy that it wasn't because of a red traffic light. I paid some €230,- last year ;-(

Fingers, in addition to what Coconut said re tightening the valve cores or better still replacing them, while your at it, if your Trophy has plastic valve caps fitted, remove them and place in the rubbish and fit metal valve caps that come with a sealing rubber ring fitted. My rear metal valve cap is the sort that has a valve core removing fixture in the top of it, whilst the front metal one doesn't. I can assure you these metal ones are the only sort worth running. I even have them fitted to my two sets of wheels for my four wheel drive Toyota. One on road set, one off road mud tyre set. The plastic should really be called dust caps. Cheers.  :821: :158:

They're great until they corrode on to the stems and can only be removed by destroying the valve stem!  I speak as a winter biker who's been there..... There's nothing wrong with dust caps if your valve seals as it should.
