Most definitely get some. I paid 25$ and free shipping. I was going to do my tire change this weekend but the valve stems won’t be here till Tuesday. So I have to wait another week.

I don't mind the rear, but that front wheel sucks!

Yeah the rear is fine. The front rotors are so big there just isn’t any room to get the chuck or the gauge down in there without letting more air out. The struggle is real my friend.

I don't have any problem checking the tire pressure or topping it off as long as the stem is positioned where I can get to it by rotating the wheel to a good spot. Both my gauge and tire pump have flexible hoses, maybe that makes the difference.

You have the OEM 3 spoke wheels. The 2012 and up have the multi spoked wheels. My forged aluminum CZ’s are multi spoked as well so it makes it hard to get to the valve stem in between the where spokes v off with the massive rotors up front.

I can barely get my fingers in there, never mind the gauge or pump (both of which have flexible hoses). Getting a gauge with a 90° head helped a lot, but my hands just don't fit in there.

Today I took it out for a blast to try out my new Ogio Zerodrag backpack. I've ridden with a lot of backpacks over the years, all pretty nice, but never one designed for riding. This thing is freaking amazing, I should have bought one when they first came out.
Then I stopped at the station just down from my house and topped it off with Cam2. The things I do to avoid ethanol...

Changed oil and filter, rotated the tires (just seeing if you're paying attention), lubed chain (DuPont Chainsaver), topped off air pressure to 36F/42R. It felt a little squirrely riding home last night and they were a few lbs low. All is well once again. 16,669 miles and 5 years (DOT code 2213).
