My 11m has an small air leak somewhere right by the zip. Is there a link somewhere to info on finding the leak..do I have to take the entire LE out and if so - How?

I've done other kites but not one pump before...

thanks for any help.

Its exactly the same be it none one pump or the SS onepump or internal onepump.

Just disconnect the LEI from the struts, and then take it out as you use to, fix the leak, put back in, and connect the LEI to the struts again.

Its not rocket science.. :remybussi:

If it is near the zip, towards the end, don't bothr disconnect the struts, just pull the bladder out a little and fix it.
If it is near the zip towards the middle, disconnect only the center strut tube, the inflation/deflation valves and pull out this piece. in this case it might be the deflation valve.
