$5.99 for Digital Tire Gauge

http://www.sears.com/shc/s/p_10153_1...7&AID=11042411


This is amazon's #1 selling tire pressure gauge. I recently purchased and it's easy to get a reading on the bike.

Strange, I'll test with it some more to see if it gives accurate readings. Consumer Reports states that it is the best tire gauge.

They have this one as well for sale at $12.99, which is programmable:

Perhaps using the old hose and gauge type is best?

1st question Patrick asks when giving his basic maintenance class. Who owns a digital tire guage??? Then he states you should throw it away.

get a motion pro, that is a terrible gauge to buy holy . there are other gauges that you need to look into, talk to tony house of paint, patrick at motorcycles unlimited or someone that can help point you in the right direction...

stop being dumb , just if you get a digital or analog one just check it with a calibrated one. i tried 3 different neighbors air gauges at the track and they were all giving me 3 slightly different readings which on a motorcycle can be a big thing on the track not so much street, still a big thing but get the right psi in your tires
