    How do check the rear tire pressure on a 09 Road King Classic? A regular tire guage dosn't fit between spokes. Poor design. Can't wait to had air.

    I use a right angle accu-pressure digital guage to check the pressure and the chuck Glider posted above to fill.

    I had the same problem. I bought this gauge at HD;
    75110-98B, and it works fine. :D

    They also sell this one, but the parts guys said they had been having
    some accuracy issues with them. 75137-98B :(

    I don't think this would work on the RKC. OP has it right... they placed the nozzle in a prison of spokes on the RKC. I have to do a contortion act just to get to it. Couldn't they have put it more on the side, as is the case with the front wheel?

    Ooops! I forgot! I put Renegade Phoenix wheels on mine which solved the problem. For $2500, any gauge will work!!! :D
