Anyone else experiencing loss in tyre pressure? Like 8-10 psi over a week or so front and rear. I will check the valves which hopefully will solve it or porous wheels maybe.

I check tyre pressure every week-> usually fill up every second week. BTW remember weather, tyre temperature plays a big role as well.
Cheers!

I haven't had any issues with loss. Have about 800 mi on the bike now and check every week or so. Check the bead seal...maybe they fit it dry?

I was told by an older rider that often new bikes have the tyres fitted dry & therefore they don't 'seat' against the rim properly. The inference being to remove and refit them using the 'wet' method which helps them seal more fully around the entire circumference of the rim.
