Thanks guys. Latest tube is a heavy duty one sourced from a local offroad motorsport specialist... so I'll keep my fingers crossed and see how it goes.
Went out to the MT today to move it... and the blasted back tyre is flat again. I haven't used the bike in a couple of months, it seems to have just developed a puncture whilst parked. Again. Makes absolutely no sense to me at all...

Tried pumping it up but I can hear the air leaking somewhere inside the tyre.

Too annoyed (and cold) to feck about with it today - just stuck the bike on its centre stand again. :evil:
Anything struck in the tyre Dave?

This has happened to you before. When you take it apart run your fingers around the tyre, you may have a foreign object in the tyre Also check your rim and renew rim tape if needs be
Indeed, back at the start of the summer. The bit that confuses me is riding around fine, no issues, leave it parked and it spontaneously develops a puncture. Very frustrating. Will look at it again later in the week when I'm not as p155ed off with it!

Cheers.

@ Gary - don't think so mate - last time the tube has a small hole on the inside (rim side) - be interested to see what happened this time, definitely need to take my time this time and check the tyre and rim properly before refitting. Cheers.

Fixed sloppy rear brake lever, reamed the hole round and turned up a new pivot from stainless. Now starting on the sloppy sidestand as its so loose that the bike is no longer stable on it, (right hand sidestand). So far I've machined the pivot round on the lathe, then I am going to cut the head off the sidestand, make a new head in the lathe and weld it back together. I'm also going to add a grease nipple to ensure its kept lubricated as jet washing keeps removing the grease.

Found it deep in the garage. Winter/Spring project to get it going.

Fitted one of George's pannier fitting kits, much easier than the original bolts
