PostSubject: Slow Puncture Fix- Any Ideas?   Thu Apr 13, 2017 9:08 am

Recently i bought my GRiSO and for a while had no problems with it until i notcied the tyre kept loosing air very slowly. I took it to get checked out at the tyre place and the bucket of water and soap trick revealed air leaking from where the spokes meet the rim!!
I put some bead sealer along the inside of the rim, to cover where the spokes come through the rim, but it hasnt worked.   Question  Question
Has anyone else had this issue, or know a fix that may help me out?

Many thanks!

Replace the o-rings on the offending spokes.

Make sure that the offending spoke is adequately tightened. I had one come loose on the front wheel when my GRiSO was only 6 months old. Went for a ride, all good. Came out to the garage next day and the front was dead flat. The leak was so bad I thought the spoke o-ring had completely shat itself, so I took it back to the dealer and all they had to do was tighten the spoke, and problem gone. 3 years later and no more dramas.

Also, if it's a GRiSO still under warranty, PIAGGIO will replace said offending nipples, including labor. At least that was my experience.

Once fixed, I've never had a recurrence on either the GRiSO or the Stelvio.

I have just tried tightening the spoken on the front wheel, hopefully this will solve the leaking issue without having to replace any o rings.
Also, do Grisos with spoked wheels all run tubeless tyres? or can you run them with tubed typres? as this would solve the issue completely and she will need a new tyre soon anyway.

Thanks

You can run anything with tubed tyres. This may cause friction between tube and outer carcase at higher speeds.

Adding a tube will make your wheel heavier, but I can fix that. pirat
