Read on post a while back about tyre valve nuts coming undone, so just checked mine and the front one was only about finger tight.
How tight should these nuts be?, seems like they tighten up forever, so I assume they have some kind of rubber on the inside.

It's raining (still), so I'm tinkering in the garage and noticed this.

Regards

I know they should be pretty tight. I am trying to find it in the manual now, but if anyone knows, they will post.

For all us yanks... tyre = tire

Enjoy your rain Mr vrodder. its what makes your country so much fun to ride in later. When we have storms out here, its just sand blowing around :)

Found it in the manual eventually, 12 to 15 in/lbs, or 1 ft/lb.
That can't be very tight, but with no way to measure, a guess will have to do.
