Tire pressure indicator light on
A few weeks ago we took a bike out of our shed for a first short ride this season. As soon as we left the driveway, the tire pressure indicator light went on. I realized I didn't check the tire pressure (duh! How could I forget that?), turned around and back to the driveway.
Checked the pressure and they were both fine, around 36 psi. Pumped them back to the "usuall" - 38 front, 40 back and off we go. The warning light stayed off the whole time.
This afternoon we've decided to take it for a quick 2-hour spin, while the weather was fine. Left the driveway and the same story - the tire pressure light went on. Turned right back, checked - 36 rear, 38 front. What the.....? Pumped some air into the rear tire (to 40.5 psi) and no light.
Any ideas? The front tire is worped a bit - bought the bike with 4200 miles and it looked like the previous owner only rode it straight, on a highway. Both tires were already "squared", used in the middle and brand new on the sides. No clue would that have anything to do with the check light. Bike now have just over 10k miles and was ridden "normally", leaned in curves etc. Planning on replacing both tires within next month or so...
