I'm loosing about 20lbs of air pressure each week in my rear tire, any ideas ? Loose valve stem or needle.

Air it up and put a little bubble of spit on the stem to see if valve is leaking, I guess you know if its not something in the tire or if youve hit a bump could be seating issue. If its not the valve stem and you cant find it check out this stuff, rideon sealant its made for different applications,including m/cs, its got great reviews from everybody thats used it and it can stay in the tire and makes no mess when you change out tires.Good luck.

I had that problem too. It was a loose valve stem. I had a 90 degree valve stem with a nut on the inside, that nut loosened up on me.
