Do you Roll with Nitrogen or Oxygen ????

.

I think most are aware of the benefits of Nitrogen vs. normal air in car tires.
And we're seeing more and more cars and trucks with Nitrogen in their tires off the showroom floors. More Stable, less heat expansion, more consistent Pressures, and less Oxidation on the inside .
All the Nascar teams around us say they use Nitrogen in their tires. Plus we have always put it in the tires on our cars the past several years

Does anyone here use Nitrogen in their motorcycle tires? Street or Race bikes?
As it seems you don't have to mess with the tire pressures as much with Nitrogen.

Thoughts?

There's one spot by me who is starting to do this for customers, but it isn't cheap, but it would be sweet to not worry about tire pressures!

Re: Do you Roll with Nitrogen or Oxygen ????

o2 here, since that's what I'm most comfortable with for checking hot/cold pressures and temp changes throughout the day.

I guess if I had nitrogen in my garage I might use it.

Oxygen cause of easy accessibility and my dad has a compressor.

RIP Matt (Ghost R6). You will be greatly missed. Be smooth and the rubber turning till we meet again.

Re: Do you Roll with Nitrogen or Oxygen ????

Whatever's free.


Things I am sick of explaining on this forum:
  • What's the difference between an R6 and an R6s? HERE
  • Should I start on a 600 or a 250? HERE
  • How do I ask the forum a question and actually get an answer? HERE
  • Where do I find a map for my Bazzaz? HERE
  • Should I get a 520 kit for MOA POWAH? HERE
  • How does rotating mass work? HERE

Re: Do you Roll with Nitrogen or Oxygen ????

78% Nitrogen
21% Oxygen

I work hard to maintain the ratio....



I find a Soap Box comes in handy to get on my High Horse!
