so, here it is:
No leaks anywhere on kite other than:
FKN inflate valve, and oh, surprise,... deflate valve.
Reminds me of the good old days when North valves sucked.
Cool. I wanted to go retro.
why do they have to leak? 20 years of RND and they leak when velcro strappy flappers are applied?
Took me for ever to find that BS. Did not think that would be the cause. Stupid.
But still, the intake leaks as well. North says big cap is a secondary seal... ehhh, what?
anywho...it leaks, it sucks, kite is awesome, love it....but valves no so bueno.
don't tell me to put the valve into hot water.... unless north provides the pot and propane
