    Default Tyre Pressure Equipment - Help me Purchase One

    السلام عیلکم

    I have a CG125. I am very conscious about Tyre Pressure because its essential to road grip. Since i travel alone on my bike, mostly ... i keep my rear tyre at 30psi. That comes with a price. I can't do pillion riding, and for that i always have to increase the tyre pressure upto 45-50psi.

    Due to this, i have to frequently visit the Tyre Shop, just to check the pressure with the psi Gauge. So i am thinking of buying one for myself.

    Please help me buy:
    1. PSI Gauge
    2. Air Filler Pump


    I'd be grateful if anyone of you could let me know about the KIND of gauge i should buy, along with the location and the expected price.

    Thanks

    You can use a bicycle pump with gauge, they are easily available at nila gumbad for round 400 - 500 rupees. Or get a foot pump from any good auto spares shop. But foot pumps usually break quite easily.

    What if I buy the PSI Gauge only? Should it be digital or analogue? I think digital would ne battery powered so wont be as effective.

    I am thinking of compact because I am willing to keep it in my bike all the time. So you can guess how much compact I am talking here.

    I would recommend a Chinese bicycle pump, preferably the light one with plastic base, but I am not sure about its availability anymore. You can still but Chinese made short steel pump. These are available at Nila Gumbad (نیلا گنبد) for Rs.300 - Rs.500.

    Tyre Pressure Equipment - Help me Purchase One - PressureGuages
    The steel/plastic gauge is Chinese, I bought a few years ago for Rs.60. Its inaccurate and moody, shows pressure with a 5 lbs. to 15 lbs. difference. I don't use it.
    The brass gauge is Pakistani and works, shows about 2 lbs. more than actual pressure. I bought it in 2008 for about Rs.100. Fits nicely next to the pump with a wide rubber band.
    These are also available at Nila Gumbad (نیلا گنبد).

    I would not recommend dial gauge, unless you buy an expensive one, for at least Rs.500.

    Whichever gauge you buy, do a comparison test. Go to a good car workshop with professional pressure gauge (usually digital) and check for different tyre pressures. You have to check for at least three(or six) different pressure settings:
    1- Front tyre pressure cold (and warm);
    2- Rear tyre pressure cold (and warm) single;
    3- Rear tyre pressure cold (and warm) with pillion rider.
    For any acceptable gauge the difference should be uniform.

    @asad01 ! Thanks for the detailed response. I am reluctant to buy a local brand for some reasons, and would prefer a quality product. But if i don't find it, i'd have no choice but to opt for a local solution.

    Would you prefer a branded product?

    I was in the market, specifically at Brandeth Road, Lahore (near Australia Chowk). I was late, so almost ALL of the shops are closed. I found only one shop, and he only had the same kind which regular tyre walas have.

    See the picture (taken from google images):
    Tyre Pressure Equipment - Help me Purchase One - product4 s

    It was this design, but worse ... with a plastic body, and a stupid 3rd class nozzle. He was demanding Rs.250 for it. I didn't buy it, because i wanted to check for other options first. So hopefully, on Monday or Tuesday, i'll visit the market again and see if i can find a good quality one.

    I have bought this PSI Gauge today, from Sheikh Gulam Rasool, Australia Chowk (oppsite to McLeod Road's PSO Pump), Lahore. Costed me Rs.650.

    Tyre Pressure Equipment - Help me Purchase One - B4DSING
    -
    Tyre Pressure Equipment - Help me Purchase One - Cb7tBgV
    -
    Tyre Pressure Equipment - Help me Purchase One - bir3seS

    It has a dedicated Pressure Release Switch, as shown in pics above. Its right under the dial gauge.

    I did test it along with a few other Gauges at the shop, and it was almost fine. This one was showing like 5-10psi less. I thought it was more accurate, thats why ... so i bought this one.

    I have come home not long ago, after getting a brand new tyre (Panther Pacer) fitted; an experience which i have shared here: https://www.pakwheels.com/forums/bik...-8#post4650399.

    Now i am noticing that there is some problem with this, as its showing MUCH MUCH less pressure. Checked with a few shop's gauges, and the cold tyre pressure was like 40-45psi ... and this one shows like 15-20psi Is it faulty? Should i return it and get another one?
