Hello,

I was wondering if someone could help me with this issue.

My dog dish was leaking and I have tried everything I could think of (and that I could find). I removed it and cleaned it and re-installed it. I even changed the gasket in case the rubber was going bad. Nothing seems to work. The only thing that is close to working is to use duct tape to cover the dog dish as tight as possible, but still it leaks water. It's driving me crazy because the tire is already a year old.

I was thinking of getting some steel dog dishes for my rear of the bike, but I want to see if I can get any help for the front.

If anyone has any suggestions or solutions I will be very grateful. I don't want to just throw my bike away.

Thanks!

PS: I bought my bike used, so if there is anything else I need to do, let me know.

Have you ever owned a car, pickup, or RV with a diesel engine? When mine broke in to a new truck, the tech would not replace the entire water pump, he just replaced the worn out cylinder head, because it was cheap.

I replaced the whole water pump assembly when I bought my bike. I think I got it on sale, but the guy knew the bike's engine well, and knew what he was doing.

I think I may be having a leak in my front tire because the rim is going through the water dish after several months. It looks like the water is getting under the rim.

Re: Chevrolet dog dish hubcaps

I am sorry about the dog dish leaking. Have you checked the bolt on the water line to see if the gasket is worn? Do you have the rear wheel off? My dog dishes have a rubber gasket on them that I hope still works.

I didn't realize the water was leaking from the bolt. It has not leaked for several months. I still want to look at the dog dish. I have the wheel off and the seal is holding on fine. I will try and take a look in the morning. If you have any suggestions, I will post them later tonight.

What kind of dog dish hubcaps are you running? They look like the ones from a chevy truck... The ones on my f 250 have no bolts on them... And i haven't seen any dog dishes that bolt to the axle... Maybe there's something different...

Re: Chevrolet dog dish hubcaps

Hi, I've got the Chevette dog dishes from a couple of years ago.

They didn't come with bolts. We just took off the nuts and pushed it into place.

I got some new ones with bolts and it looks like Chevy has made some improvements. But they're still plastic on both sides and the plastic doesn't feel the same. It doesn't hold in the water the same.

Have you tried the Kwik Kube? They do the job of hubcaps quite well but look much more like they're supposed to. You can order them at Kwik Kube. You can see a video for them at their website. (You'll have to sign up to use it.)

And, you know, you're right about the plastic. We were all quite skeptical about the water-sealing capabilities of it at first, but they actually work very well. The only time I had issues was when it was cold out and my dog would stick her paws out of the hole. The plastic didn't do it any favors. I'll have to post a review once I've actually used them for awhile. I also need to see if I can find the old ones.
