    I also had an issue with Stella losing air rapidly on the Road 5's, but only when riding. That turned out to be the filter valve cores I had to put in because I use balancing beads. A change to regular valve stem cores or good metal caps with o-rings fixed that.

    Air pressure with a good gauge is part of my daily pre-ride check now

    Ha! Calm down Lunatic, I'm not turning into TPEHAK! I was just following the mfg recommendation and it did work for me.

    I do use it for track days too, but just because (N) doesn't have a temperature differential. I can set the pressure I like and it won't change with tire heat.

    I know a guy who dressed his tires with Armor All.
    It nearly killed him because the rotation spun it onto the tread

    Armor All has no business being anywhere near any part of a motorcycle.

    Same person previously used it on his seat and busted his nuts on his gas tank the first time he braked.
    I seriously don’t know how he is still alive
