Regarding these pressure-indicating-valve-caps:
During my bike's recent MOT I was embarrassed when the mechanic picked up on rather low front tyre pressure. Of course regular checks would've prevented this, which is why I've now installed these pressure-monitors. They are the ideal solution for lazy-me. And as with 'ryszard' I've had a very good experience = no drop in pressure!
By the way, I'd forgotten how much difference to the handling the correct pressure makes = steering's muuuch lighter now/again!
And for those who might also consider these caps, I got mine from 'Ultraseal'.

I think it's more noticeable on the front...I once road the socks off my Diablos and only had 15psi in the rear, I wondered why it was a little loose, figured it was tyre pressure, and just thought I can live with it...in 300 miles the tyre was goosed.

Check my tyres before I ride now, it's a good habit to get into, because you'll look at other things as well, like chain lube et al.
I've just started riding the GTS again, and it'll be changing
