    Fit a metal dust cap with a proper sealing washer in it and or replace the valve,sometimes the centrifugal force will open the valve

    Blade is right. It will only go down when the wheel is spinning fast.

    Change the valve internals and fit a good cap with a seal.
    Thanks from Blade

    Have you hit any potholes recently, maybe check the wheel rim for damage. Even a small flat will cause the bead to leak while riding on our bumpy roads.
    Failing that at least replace the valve instead of putting tyre weld in as that will throw the balance out. I hope you find the problem.

    Try fitting new valve internals first, see if that stops the loss.

    Most tyre fitting joints will do it nae probs fir pennies.
