How often does every check their tire pressure? Ever since I bought my 300, I've only checked it once a month into it and another month afterwards. Seems like the tire held pressure pretty well. Initial pressure check was 38F/34R and the second check was 36F/31R.

That is a pretty big deviation. I guess if you run that high you can afford to let them lose like 6+ psi each, but if I were you I'd check a lot more often. I check mine at least twice a week, usually once a day when the tires are cold in the morning. You never know when you may run over a sharp rock then have 15psi in a tire the next morning... Hop on and ride away and you could crash at the first turn.

Is there a particular reason you had them set to 38 front and 34 rear? That seems way too high for the front tire. The stock pressures are 28 front 32 rear, I prefer 30 front and 28 rear but I felt unsafe in corners with the pressure much higher than the recommended stock psi. Are you trying to get an extra 2mpg or something? Lol

I came here expecting some technical details that the common man may not be aware of and instead I get a video explaining the basics of tire inflation. I knew I shouldn't have clicked this thread. Are people really this clueless? I think a better title would have been, "Slime Air Pump only The Best".

That's probably the most selfish thing I've ever read on this forum.

1) Fill in your location details via the User CP.

2) You bump an old thread just to let everyone know that the information provided is too basic for you? Again, probably the most selfish thing I've ever read here. The video's information is too basic for you so that means who cares if it helps others? It MUST benefit you or else? Wow man!

3) No one made you watch the video. I clearly mentioned in the OP that the video was made for a member who was concerned about his tire pressure. I posted the video in his thread as a reply but since so many people enjoyed it and felt it was useful and helpful I was asked to post it inside its own thread. What technical details were you expecting from a air pump video? What is there to know about tire pressure besides the basics?

4) If you didn't notice the Ninja 300 is suited for beginners so why would you expect the video to have anything other than beginner material? A lot of people don't even know the basics which makes the video very helpful. Yes, you clicked the thread but clicking the thread doesn't mean you had to respond to it especially if you're just going to whine about something instead of being appreciative of it. All because the video didn't suit " Your Needs " doesn't mean it doesn't suit a ton of other people's needs. You watched the video all on your own. No one asked or forced you to watch it. Again, there was no need to bump an old thread just to throw negativity out in the air all because the information provided wasn't advanced enough for you. And again, all because it didn't suit " Your Needs " doesn't mean it doesn't help a lot of other people which is clearly has.

5) You're irrelevant so I'm not sure why I'm even responding to you as you never contribute anything to this community. You just " expect " stuff to cater to you and to you only. Quite selfish indeed!

does the Slime 12-Volt Digital Tire Inflator have a built in tire pressure gauge? or do you use a standard tire pressure gauge you can pick up from the gas station and what not?

sorry haven't watched the video yet, I'm at work.. meh

It has a built in gauge. You set it to what you want and it stops there.
I have this one
Amazon Amazon
76 bucks but I use it in my shed for all sorts of projects but would not recommend it to anyone. It works o.k. but is loud enough to wake the dead.
