Hey Guys-

This is in addition to my other reply in the Tensor thread, but need help. I just got my 28-10-14 Tensors in, and the tire shop has them mounted on my stock beadlock wheels. They are saying they tires are leaking, and aren't too familiar with bead lock wheels. Is it possible that longer bolts are required, or is there other alternatives such as an adhesive that is used on beadlocks to prevent leaking? Any help is appreciated, hoping to get this squared away before I leave on my trip tomorrow.

I have had mine on for about a month, no leaking but the tire shop used the longer bolts and filed the tires with some type of fluid
to help balance them. I have the 28".

I would take the beadlock rim off and reinstall following the proper torque procedure. I have no leaking...and over 300 miles on them.

Just torque down the bolts to spec and your leaks should go away

From the Yamaha service guide if you are unable to view it


Assembling the Bead Lock Rim

1. Assemble tire onto the rim.

2. To seat the outside bead of the
tire place the lock plate onto the
rim (over the bead) and start the
fasteners.

3. Starting at No.1 in the
illustration to the right, torque
the fasteners to 5 Nm following
the pattern to No.15.

4. Using the same pattern torque
the fasteners to 12Nm.

5. Inflate the tire to 128 kPA (18.5
psi) to seat the inside bead.

6. Torque the fasteners in the
same pattern as above to
17Nm.

7. Set tire to recommended tire
pressure.
