Easy access valve extension for checking and inflating tyres.

I bought a simple little device from Amazon recently which has made tyre pressure checks much less awkward, so I thought I would recommend it here.Flexi connectorWhen you need it you screw it onto the tyre valve so the other end is much more accessible.The photo shows it in the middle with my Maplins mini-compressor and Draper analogue gauge with hold/release valve. I've tried all sorts over the years but this is the best combo so far.

Chain oiler

So I have an XTRS 125, and was wondering if i's worth fitting a Scottoiler? I do about 150 commuting miles per week through the city on it. Would it be worth the investment, or should I just stick to a clean once per week and oil after a wet run or once per week?

Which Exhaust and battery?

I've own my Repsol blade from new which is 3 years now and in that time sadly because it lives outside the stander exhaust has rusted quite badly so I've decided to treat the bike to a new exhaust, I liked the look of the carbon akrapovic slip on exhaust with link pipe that at the time I bought my bike some dealer were actually fitting for free but having looked into it this can is no longer available and to be honest the only akrapovic one that is comes in well over %XA31000 which is much more that I was thinking ...
