Checking tire pressure on front wheel.

OK I know I will get some heat over this question. So far I have spent $30 on two gauges that are very accurate. Using on the rear tire is a slam dunk! The front is a PITA 😡

What do you use that makes the front easier to gauge? The twin brake disks and the design of the wheel donít cooperate.

Thanks in advance..

I have 90į metal valve stems installed as suggested by my mechanic when I bought new tyres last time.

Did the mechanic tell you why he opted for that option?

I just had new tires installed. I decided on the 90 degree valve stem. Wow that is a game changer ‼️ The tire pressure gauge fits perfectly with no loss of air. Easy to reach on front and rear.

If you park your bike where there is limited room give them a try..

He just suggested they were available and I saw their benefit, so I asked him to install them when he replaced both tyres on my bike. They make checking pressures a breeze as they don't flex and attaching any air hose is easier.
