Has anyone had a tyre go flat with no puncture? Relatively new tyre, scrubbed in.

Was out for about an hour yesterday,stopped at my son's for a cuppa and the tyre was half flat when i came out.

Limped the couple miles home,took the wheel off and inflated it and using water tested for air leaks.

Couldn't find any and it has not lost any pressure off the bike overnight.

Gonna go test ride it shortly to see if it loses and pressure again.

Tyre and valve have no visible leaks even with water.

Unless you submerge the mounted tire under water, a slow leak is going to be hard to detect. The weight of the motorcycle could have contributed to the leak increasing due to the position of the tire when the air loss occurred.
