I know the atmosphere is already 78% nitrogen but all racers run pure nitrogen. What is the advantage to a normal rider and is it worth it in the long run?
Nah I doubt that would happen with the nitrogen I use to work in a tire shop seen many flats come in and all with nitrogen. No danger from using it only benefits like others have mentioned. No pressure change or minimal compared to conventional air.Interesting thread. I've been wondering about nitrogen myself.
I just purchased tire warmers for my GROM and I usually put the tire warmers on high for 1.5-2 hours before I ride.
I like getting down on the throttle hard coming out of twisties and I need my tires to stick. Will the nitrogen in the tires allow the tires to get warmer or keep the heat in the tires longer?
Will nitrogen help me wheelie better? I was told it's lighter than air, so it makes it easier to pick up wheelies.
Is Nitrogen flammable ? is there a possibility of fire or explosion if I pop a tire coming down hard from high speed wheelie and rocks make sparks?
I just want to play it safe and learn as much as I can before I make the transition.
