Leaking tires, valve stems??

Recommended Posts

My new 2017 Polaris Ranger has tires going low. When I went to check pressures in all tires one cap was on tight and I noticed the valve stem rotated easily. I checked all 4 and  all stems spun with ease. Either the holes for the stems are too large or the stems are too small.
i'll get new stems and go from there.

Anyone else have the same problem?

In my Kawasaki Mule 550, my front left tire kept going flat, and the wheel wasn't properly "Seated" you might say around the tire it self, put stop a (1) can of stop leak, works perfectly now!

used soapy water but no bubbles at valve or rim, slow leaks are annoying. Could just be that 10 psi is not enough to keep them air tight.

I'd rather find the cause of the leak. Stop leak can throw a tire off balance to make it a problem  (on road driving) It goes 50 mph !

I could invest in a small electric compressor for the trail.

Kind of like a drill batery i believe

My sis. had one she kept in her truck, worked good when ever the tire(S) got low.

Just now, Willy M said:

I suppose a bicycle pump would work too, anything electric can fail furthest in the trail.

That is true too!

I had the engine light come on temporarily on the Polaris. Too much high tech stuff on it. Manual says only a Polaris dealer can read the codes

not at all, I didn't know they existed. The one that connects to your battery looks like a good one. I should get a tire patch kit too. Nothing like walking out miles from the trails just to walk back with repair items. A spare tire would be good but pricey.

I like your "Trump"  photo.  Here in Canada I wouldn't dare use "Trudopes" pic.  I think we have total opposites for leaders.

we get ripped off here in Canada. Everything extra and add 30% more since our $$ sucks. First the bank of Canada lowered the $ and then the economy so the govt blamed it all on the economy and not what they did, go figure?  All our small products at grocery stores shrink and prices rise. I love going to Watertown and seeing real normal sized cans etc.

Hillary is one of many who was corrupted by Saudi $$$$$.   Trudeau has taken much from them by just looking at his immigration policies.
