 checking air pressure

How do you check pressure on a filled tire ? valve stem up or down. I'm guessin up so fluid doesn't enter gauge ????

Yup. Up.

But first check that they are not overfilled by poking the valve open with something you can wash the salt off of. You don't want all that salt water in your tire gauge.

There are ag-type tire gauges made for fluid filled tires. Using a regular gauge works but the fluid can damage them.

They must of been overfilled, ran them to 12 o'clock push valve and fluid sprayed out. so I pulled the stem out and let it drain till no more fluid came out with rear tires off the ground, then proceeded to fill and ckeck air pressure.I think I'm going to end up going to weights like my old machine.(a lot less mess).

look into foam filled. You'll never have to worry again about your tires.

Foam fill a pair of 13.6 x 28's ?

Wow, I think it would be cheaper to buy a crane.

Best of luck.

The BX uses tubeless tires and would need a tube installed to keep the rim from rusting. Your dealer would have mentioned it as nothing comes from the factory with anyting but air in it.

Kubota sells an excellent set of reasonably priced wheel weights for your BX. I found them quite useful.
