Yes i already have gauge as well as TPS on the bike so reading is not an issue.

Another way to check is use the compressor while at the air filling station and figure out the difference. Usually these pumps will show higher pressure while pumping and actual is shown only after you switch off the pump. This is what i have noticed.

I don't intend to discourage you but in almost 5 years of riding my bike across different states, my buddies or me never felt the need for a tire inflator. I've had punctures but they were never a bother. A good puncture kit will suffice.

Only in one instance where we rode to Munnar and Kodai, Sharath's CBR (now the Striple) was punctured and we noticed the next morning that it was really low on air. We tried using an inflator from another friend but strangely it didn't work. We rode to a nearby bunk and fixed the puncture and topped up air in less than 5 mins.

You may need one if you're planning a trip to a place like Leh or Laddakh where resources may be scarce.

Just thought I'd share my 2 cents to save your 2 thousand odd rupees

Yup i prefer to take the road less traveled than highways. Last 2 rides i did was to places where access to simple luxury like air compressor was... well luxury.

Thumbs down Re: Big daddy - Amazon India - launches Car & Motorcycle Online Store

Dear BHPians

Placed an order on Amazon India for Quick Wax (Automotive section) for some detailing of my ride but received a SMS from Amazon stating that the seller can't complete the delivery

And this was probably due to an issue with the package that was delivered as today was my delivery date. Amazon India knows that they are transporting trigger sprays wouldn't they choose a service provider who could deliver plastic spray bottles without breaking them.

I would really like to dig deep to find out the details but they failed in my opinion

Cheers
