Tires Why Nitrogen?
Nitrogen is a dry, inert gas used for years nationwide to inflate race car tires, commercial airline tires, off-road truck tires, the U.S. Space Shuttle tires, and U.S. Military vehicles tires. Nitrogen can actually be used to put out fire as it contains no oxygen. Tires filled with nitrogen perform better, last longer, and function with a greater degree of reliability than tires inflated with standard air. Ideal for motorcycles that are not driven often. Nitrogen helps maintain proper tire inflation, allowing your tires to run cooler, thus, increading tread life. Tires roll better, grip better and you will have better control of your motorcycle. Tires filled with nitrogen also improve gas mileage. With improved tire inflation comes improved gas mileage. You can save as much as five percent of your gas expenses when your tires are filled with nitrogen.
Tires are quieter, feel more solid and responsive.
Road bumps feel muted
Improved road tracking
Tires run cooler and faster.
Oxygen is your tire’s worst enemy. It causes oxidation of the rubber in the tire and slowly weakens the tread, referred to as “fatigue” or “aging.” Because nitrogen is a clean, moisture-free gas, it slows down internal tire oxidation, which slows down the aging process of your tires, allowing them to perform at optimum levels longer.
Nitrogen helps maintain proper tire pressure longer.
Nitrogen is non-flammable and non-corrosive, as opposed to oxygen.
Nitrogen can be used to put out fire.
Nitrogen molecules leak through tire walls more slowly than regular air because they are larger than oxygen molecules.
Nitrogen tire inflation is one of the newest trends in automotive maintenance. We are taking it a step further and putting it in your motorcycle. No, this isn’t a gimmick.
This simple and inexpensive alternative to standard air inflation provides considerable benefits for your vehicle. Nitrogen inflation machines have been cost prohibitive that only Airlines, NASA, Military and other large budgeted organizations have been to acquire these machines…until now!
ok this was copied and pasted from DC Cycle & Racing.... I had never heard of putting nitrogen in tires until now, have you ?
