Hmm. Doesn't seem to have a mounting kit that I could find. It's a key fob style display.

I like the BMW factory version that flashes a warning when it detects deflating tyre/low pressure or overheating tyre. There was a bar mount pressure geegaw several years ago, but from memory it was close to $300 down under.

I use “Fobo bike” sensors with the app on my phone. It alarms but I usually have my phone in my pocket and probably need to mount it where I can use it (someday). I’ve had the system for a couple of years and it’s been very reliable.

Is more weight out on the end of a valve stem a good thing?

I got given a set years ago, and used them for a while. Waste of time, I just use the cheap caps that change from green to yellow to red as the pressure decreases. And then one of these broke and caused my tyre to deflate.

Geegaws, indeed!

Rick,

The ones I have and I’m sure the ones Beetle shows, weigh next to nothing. They are plastic composite.

I really like the tpms. I have it on one of my other bikes as a stock unit and really got used to it so I wanted one for the GRiSO. This is where I mounted mine. Sticky tape and velcro Its never budged. Can take it right off to charge it and stick it back on. The caps weigh nothing at all. They each have a replaceable battery and they have never leaked at all.

I guess I'm gun shy. I had a road debris blow-out on our rv, which of course a TPMS won't detect until it's too late. It was the center of three axles. Flying tire shreds took out the two adjacent valve stems, because the monitor caps stuck out further (I had short, metal valve stems). As a result, I lost three tires instead of one. Not to mention damage to the trailer. YMMV.

I'm with Kiwi Dave, I like the simple Tyrecheckers (from Tyrecheckers.com.au). They are mechanical, colour-coded - green=OK, yellow=2psi down, red=4psi down. You buy them pre-set to order.They are not alway 100%accurage, so get a few extra to play with. Each weighs 6 grams, by my kitchen scale. You merely look down at the valve to check the colour. A convenience. $15 for a pack of 2, $27 a 4 pack.

I tried their electronic version - a flashing LED when 4 psi down, but not as happy with those, didn't know if the tyre was at full pressure, or the battery was flat.

Try them out, Mark - the real estate on and around your dash is not plentiful any more.

I like the idea of TPMS in theory.

In reality they tend to make a person lazy. Flat out ignoring their tires til the light comes on. The ones with a readout on the key fob are a little better.

My biggest problem is with the ones that replace the valve stem cap. Including the color changing ones, like Kiwidave and MalG mention. They press on the valve the entire time. The only thing keeping the air in the tire is now the caps o-ring.

That does concern me. I have gotten in the habit of checking pressure before every ride.

Make no mistake, I'm not complacent when it comes to checking my air. I carry my Slime pressure gauge with me in my small tank bag, which is pretty much always attached, but I don't check my tyre pressure every time I throw a leg over. On a road trip, I'll pump or confirm tyre pressure before I hit the the road. I don't typically check it again until on my way home.

I apologise if the idea of monitoring you tyre pressure while riding is offensive to you. I thought it might be nice to know if your tyre was losing air before you wrecked it or crashed. Or not.

Sorry if I offended anyone. Did not mean too. I just had to throw my 2 cents in there.

Guess car people are worse than us bike people about tire pressure.

Worked at a car dealership for a while and whenever there was a big drop in temperature tire pressure lights would light up. Which resulted in me spending most of my day airing up tires.

Even managed to offend a little old lady when I told her she was still supposed to check the tires at once a week.

I had an Audi Q5 as a rental a few weeks back. The tyre monitor kept telling my tyres were flat when they clearly weren't. I actually found it annoying. But, it also told when to put your foot on the brake. Talk about nanny controls!


I'd say pretty much every biker I personally know is definitely not lazy when it comes to their tyres. I can't speak for all bike owners, but when you only have two wee contact patches stopping you from being flung into the weeds, you tends to pay attention.

I am going to try this one. Review were good. Will let you know. I think a smear of petroleum jelly to prevent rubber seal from tearing and help seal.

I've got Shark Tyre pressure gauge and it comes with a handle bar mount.
Checks Pressure in PSI or Bar, tyre temperature and fast deflation.
