Front tyre still leaking air-overnight down to a steady 16 PSI.

Okay, I've given up on Guzzi/ Piaggio UK fixing the O rings on the spokes and don't have a garage to fix them myself, so I'm going down the inner tube route.

Any advice on rim tape width?

Have you made any attempt to identify which "O" ring it is, probably only 1, don't need a garage for this.

If you get a cheap plastic planter box and work it under the wheel, fill it up and slowly rotate the wheel it will fizz away pretty good when you find the leaker, I usually twist a few inches of rosin core solder around the leaky one, string or wire will be just as good.

Spoke leaks aren't hard to fix, see this Topic:

If you can't be bothered fixing the spoke seals this is a far better option than fitting a tube.

Naturally, not a problem with my GRiSO, as it's one of the faster models without wire spokes.  cheers

But, my Stornello has tubed tires and I am going to go the tape route to mount tubeless tires at next swap-out.

Interesting video (and comments) as I had wondered about the "how to" of doing the tape.

might go with that-I have to work on the road and don't possess a lift.
