Holeshots don't hold air

I wonder if while you were riding some beads of sand got caught between the rim and the tire leaving a tiny gap for the air to leak.

Take them off of the quad and put about 7-10psi and then hold them underwater. To reset the bead you might need to get the tires completely free of the bead and then clean the bead and reset with a bunch of air pressure. I recommend having it done. It is not fun to try to do them in the garage.

I think Stupidbots idea is right, my riding buddy had an issue with one of his tires leaking air slowly. after fighting with it with slime and such for awhile. He had it taken off of the rim and there was a tiny piece of a stick trapped in the bead that was causing the leak. You couldn't see it while the tire was mounted and afterward he no longer had the issue.

That sounds like it could be the problem. Maybe also use some beadsealer. You could always just grab a spray bottle of water and spray the area to see if you see any leaks.

      My king quad 700 runs rough when cold then won't start some times but not often when it's hot. And occasionally smoke's a lot when it's cold I'm guessing that's rings but I'm worried unless it's causing the other problems
       
       
       
      All help is appreciated thanks

      Has anyone else had an issue on older king quads where the oil would leak from the top of the head (due to a failed gasket) and drip onto the hot exhaust? Mine got so hot one time it caught fire. Just wondering if this is a common issue, as I've seen the same thing happen on multiple bikes that were the same model.

      My 2014 750 king quad stalls sometimes when I touch or turn the handlebars,the problem has gotten worse,my machine has 475 miles and is only trail ridden,I have a new factory battery and i have 14.2 volts when the quad is running and 13.3 on the battery when not running,also using a multimeter there is no change in volts when turning the bars until it does stall,If I pull the 40 amp power steering fuse it will not stall.......I've been told its the ECU,Hate to buy one if thats not the problem,but its kinda leaning towards that,,,,,need some opinions.
