i have had this prob from the first month, i told the dealer he offered to put in a tube, for a price..... i have taken it in and the tire people took it off the rim cleaned it and sealed it but no deal still leaks. i thought it was the valve because it was leaking from there then i tightened it, now it leaks from the rim very slow leak but a leak all the same SIGH......... any advice before i tube it or shoot it. def a rim leak tho. second prob was the light switch hazzard lights or turn signal turn on ramdomly, took apart the switch top to bottom and cleaned every bit no prob now took about 30 min to clean.
Like IPZ said, try some Slime in it. I use it all the time around the farm. Always seems to take more than what it says to use on the jug but if it stops the leak it's worth it. Works in tube type or tubeless just fine.
AMSOIL, protect your investment.
BX front tire leaks are a common problem. Be sure to pump up the tire and spray it with soapy water to diagnose the leak(s). A lot of times it will leak through the sidewall on Kubota tires. Tubing it is the way to go for a permanent fix but Slime usually works too.
As for the lights - the dash switches are not waterproof. It is a common problem for the lights to flash or go on without using the switch. I disconnected mine and left them that way.

WELL i guess i will slime it this was that way from the start, even after being broke down cleaned and resealed still leaks sigh..... thanks for the advice all. cant see shooting her yet still many good years to come
I bought a bottle of that green slime at a walmart a while back. Dont recall brand, maybe American something or other. Anyhow, the the fronts on my B7100 were originally on a Big ZTR of some sort that my nephew re-shod because the bar tread was tearing the sod up to much at his place. Free tires! Correct size!! Whoo hoo! But as would have it one would leak down fast, somehow after I put them on. It seemed to come right through the sidewall.
Half a bottle of that green gunk and a half hour of use later, I began to see small bubbles on the sidewall. I was ***very*** skeptical of its properties. Anyhow, after its chores were done for the night i parked the old girl so the leak was at the lowest point. Now three months later, it hasn't changed a PSI that I can tell. I will use this secret potion again. Its not real cheap but, in the whole scheme of things, certainly not expensive. About a third of the price of a tube. Best thing, I didn't have to take the front wheel weights off to take the wheel off to get it fixed with a tube. That takes me more than two hands for some reason. As I said I ^^^will^^^ use slime again.
