On last Saturday, i took out my 200NS, but felt something weird in Handling it. When saw the front tyre, it was almost Flat. Thought there must be some kind of puncture..
Took it to a near-by pump to fill in air. After i came back, I tried to find any leak by pouring water. (Since there was no visible puncture)
Found some very tiny bubbles coming out from the side of the rim. The leak is very small (kind of chora leak) and i think it will take days to completely leak out the air.
As of then sealed it with chewing gum
Since the SVC would have been closed on Sunday, so i wait till Monday, as i think the air will held by Monday..
But was socked to hear from the SVC that they have no instrument to open up the tyre. In fact none of the SVC here in Kolkata have that!!!!
Also went to various big shops (Such as bridgestone, MRF etc etc) but every one said that they are only capable to open out 4 wheeler Rims and not of Two wheelers. SOme of the Small shops (Road-side) wallas that i visited, also didn't want to open up the tyres, since,
1) the tyre were tubeless
2) the bike doesn't have a center stand!!
Now got an Address where they open up the tyre by proper machine. but that's quite far off from my place, and can take it only on coming Saturday Question
- If the rims needs to be changed, can i claim insurance on that??
(PS - I am very surprised/shocked to see the rims getting bend, as I didn't got through any potholes or any such thing in last few days)
