    Hello Everyone,

    The valve stem on the front tire of my Vitpilen is leaking. How can I find out what size it is? I’ve tried searching in the manual but no luck.

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    Often times those are fixed by simply tightening the valve core. Any auto parts store will have the tool you need to do it

    This bike runs tubes inside tubeless tyres due to the spoked wheels so if your stem is leaking you have a puncture in the tube of some kind. I have used sealant in my rear tube which worked well but I imagine the official line would be get a new tube fitted.

    I also bought some little external rubber tube valve seals sold for dirtbikes to slow any leaks after I blew the rear rolling over a rock in the road.
