I know this thread is old but it contains a fix I have seen no where else.
After getting my Marq Victory anodized I started experiencing the dreaded ASA leak from the 12x1mm oring from my SLP
and shims removed Ninja tank. Now, this is on a V1 Vic so it has the old ASA with the 4 screws. I replaced the 12x1 oring over and over and tried my best to evenly srew the 4 screws back in with a star pattern but nothing was working, after a few minutes it would push the oring out the side and leak.
So I called BLAST and they are sending me some 13x1.5 orings to try <- Now this I could not find anywhere else, has anyone tried these yet?
While looking to see if anyone has had success with the 13x1.5 orings I came across this thread. So after reading what Nemesis2000 suggested I went off to Walmart and found (In the CAR tire accessor section, NOT the bike section) this kit
. I took the smallest patch and cut it in a 'D' shape to match where the bottom of the grip contacts the top of the ASA and cut a small hole where the air transfer hole would match up. I put the 12x1 oring in place and then the 'D' shaped patch on top and screwed the 4 screws and put on a tank and let it sit there for an hour and....
NO MORE LEAKS!!!
So I thought I'd post up as this fix deserves some attention as I know MANY people (like this guy
, and this guy
) have/are struggling with this issue.
Thanks again to Nemesis for this tire patch idea!
