We can't say it enough - you need to always ensure that your motorcycle's tires are at the right pressure. Forget about the fact that tires that are under-inflated will cost you much more money in fuel! They are just unsafe. Badly inflated tires use up more fuel but also represent an imminent danger on the road to you and others. That is why it's important to regularly check the tire's air pressure.

But that is a pain. Creeping under your motorcycle to place a pressure gauge is no fun, especially if your bike sleeps outside and it's raining. Most bikers will do with a quick visual check to see if the tires are running flat, but you can't really tell if the tires are low (or too high). I have overtime realized the importance of the right pressure, and knowing my extreme laziness, I have had installed an electronic pressure monitor. So from the dashboard I can tell what the exact air pressure is. But.... these cost quite a lot of money, and need to be installed either by a mechanic or someone who knows how to remove tires. Nowadays you can get electronic units that do not need to be installed inside the tires, but they remain quite expensive.

RightPSI

RightPSI Open RightPSI link in a new window is a project that had tried to get crowd-funding a while back, but it didn't work out. Now they have redesigned their product and set realistic goals. On Kickstarter, you can now pledge money for this product that should makes our lives simpler and safer (remember that pledging money on Kickstarter means you only need to pay once their financial goal has been met, so you'll never lose money).

RightPSI is a tire pressure indicator that looks like it's so simple, it's a wonder that it has been invented yet. You purchase the RightPSI according to the tire pressure you need. So make sure you look at what the tire pressure should be before ordering it.

You just place the RightPSI on top of the tire valve of your motorcycle (or car or bicycle). Once screwed on, you tighten it with a hex nut. The hex nut will prevent some imbecile from removing your indicator (there are morons all over the world).

RightPSI
Two things to note: 1. Filling up your tires does not involve having to remove your indicator - you fill it up right through the product. Put the air hose onto the RightPSI and fill'er up. 2. Here is where it's interesting. The colors change inside the RightPSI indicator.

If your pressure is too low, the indicator turns orange. If it's correct, the indicator will be black. And if you have overfilled the tire, the indicator will turn yellow.

So now when you approach your motorcycle for a ride, you can see very quickly if your tires are inflated properly. The orange color will standout on the black tire, so there's no missing the indicator.

As you can see, the product is interesting; easy to use, safe and not expensive. If you pledge money now, you can get two indicators for your motorcycle for the grand sum of US$15.
