NEVER put that tire inflation patch stuff in a tire and check it with your new digital gauge... don't ask me how I know.
Ya know gold you cant check air pressure with that crap in your tire at the bottom the valve stem has to be at the top .. now check it

Like a loaded tractor tire you can only add air or check the pressure when the valve stem is at the top cause the liquid is at the Bottom.. LOL.................... ..............................

Ask me How I know


I was educated the hard way on this one years and years agoooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

Or...... Ya can't check a bicycle tire filled with a can full of that cr@p, because someone was too lazy to replace the inner tube and thought he could avoid changing one by dumping an entire can of that stuff in a tubed tire.

Hmmmm wonder how much pressure is in the tire... wait.. hold my beer, I'll check it..

This is good advice, also remember to change the air in your tires regularly, your bike will run much better.

One more thing . . . make sure you check your Owner's Manual for the correct air as some take 87 while others use 91. You don't want a "Pinging" noise coming from your tires because you didn't have the correct rating. And - air blended with Ethanol can never be good. Don't want the valve stem rubber to be eaten away.
