    Nitrogen is only available in some of the big brand tyre outlet, it costs almost Rs 25/-(price may have increased) to inflate with nitrogen.

    I think its a worth trying it out. Good research by Saif..
    Thanks Alot, Sandeep.
    Reaffirms my opinion about N. Its definitely worth trying out for 30/- per tyre.

    You can fill Nitrogen from the MRF dealer near, the Sathyam Theater. U don't need to change the default tire pressure...

    Have you test driven the car when air was filled and pressure was checked with an ACCURATE gauge? And then tested again with N, again using a accurate gauge??

    If not, then....

    There is no scientific test that says N will be superior to air for street vehicles.

    Thanks L.P., From what i gather reading your posts you are quite the "Tyre Expert", and yourself approving N is quite a positive thing i'd say .

    @LP: Have you "discovered" the benefits of nitrogen yourself by using it on your Discover or is it just some theoretical knowledge speaking?

    ok I dunno about mileage yet, but yes tyre feels much better i tried putting brakes hard today but almost no wobbling, also i touched tyre it was much cooler, i really do not think performance can be increased buy tyre, but yes i was feeling a little drag with normal air, which i think has reduced, but yes i can take more sharper turns with ease now.

    bike is in run in period so cant really say if performance i feel more air.

    strange what an extra 20% can do!
    anyways, my questions:

    1. tyre pressure - well if you check the li'l sticker of tyre pressure stuck in your bike, it says something like 25-front and 30/32-rear.
    in most petrol pumps i observe they set it to 26-front and 36-rear and fill.
    now, would this change in pressure settings, combined with nitrogen, give any negative/positive effects?

    2. air is but 80% nitrogen. so does it actually do any good to 'bikes' (car tyres are ofcourse bigger and the effect of all 4 on road is far different from the comparitively 2 puny ones of bikes)? i mean, is the effect so drastically better for shelling out 25-30rs when normal air comes for free/1-2rs?

    3. anyways air has to be put in to maintain tyre pressure. so how many times of air filling can the 'nitrogen effect' actually hold?
