EZ-Air Gauges with 90-degree chucks are back in stock!
EZ-Air Tire Gauge – Now available with 2 styles of air chuck
Straight Air Chuck (shown at left), or…
Right Angle Air Chuck (below)
If you ride a late model BMW R12GS, you should order the right angle air chuck version. It will fit between the valve stem and the wheel hub. The straight chuck won’t.
The EZAir is a perfect companion to the CyclePump inflator. This gauge clips onto any tire valve stem and gives instant, accurate pressure readings up to 100 PSI. The self-locking brass air chuck makes a positive seal and prevents air loss during the inflation or deflation process. (see notes below about the new style of air chuck)
If tire pressure is too high, release air by pressing the bleed button on the top of the gauge.
If tire pressure is too low, attach a CyclePump (or a compressor air hose with a quick release chuck) to the brass valve stem on the right side of the gauge. The gauge instantly becomes an in-line gauge. The 1.5″ dial displays real-time pressure as the tire inflates. Tire pressure management doesn’t get any easier.
Technical Specs: Weight 12 oz. Size 1.5″ x 6″ x 6″ in the black vinyl pouch.
This is the only in-line analogue dial gauge to receive a “Recommended” rating from Motorcycle Consumer News in their tire gauge shootout. We think that’s pretty cool.
The CyclePump EZAir Gauge dial displays both PSI and BAR. PSI scale is on the outside ring, BAR scale is on the inside. Why BAR? It’s the international standard for tire pressure and BAR is used in most countries outside the USA . 1 BAR = 14.5 PSI. Tire sidewalls and owner’s manuals often specify tire pressure in BAR. Having both values makes inflation even easier. (sorta like having a speedometer that reads in both MPH and KPH).

When ordering you have 2 air chuck options:
STRAIGHT chuck shown below left, RIGHT ANGLE chuck shown below right.
The straight chuck requires at least 4.5″ between the end of the tire valve stem and the wheel hub. This distance is needed because the air hose comes off the end of the chuck, so you have to bend it.
The right angle chuck requires only 2″ between the end of the tire valve stem and the hub, making this gauge ideal for bikes with limited clearance.

If you ride a bike with valve stems that point upward toward the axle, you should order the right angle air chuck version.
If you ride a bike with valve stems that point out to the side, you should order the straight chuck version.
If you ride a BMW K1600 there’s a problem with the location of the valve stem on the rim – there’s not enough clearance for either a straight chuck OR a right angle chuck. Some models have the stem off-center in the cast wheel “spoke” opening. No solution other than have that valve stem replaced with a 90-degree stem.
