Aftermarket TPMS
« on: July 14, 2012, 11:49:02 pm »
Saw an aftermarket set up for tire pressure monitoring that would go on a motorcycle today. I was curious if anybody on here had tried one out on their bikes, and if so if they had anything good/bad to say.

Here's a link to @mazon that shows the one I saw at the dealer.

If you go to the manufacturers site it reads like English is their 4th language unfortunately.

I haven't heard f the Orange Electronic unit CRocker mentioned. Looks like it could be an option.

I have heard many good things about this one:

I installed the Orange Systems TPMS and couldn't be happier.
Last month I did the Alaska Highway, Dalton, Richardson, Liard, Klondike, Top-o-the World, etc.
12,860 miles.
The road surface changes so frequently and suddenly up there, I would have been checking the tires for a flat several times a day.
When the bike started to wander around in the gravel, it was comforting to be able to just glance at the display and see the pressures were fine.

Thanks for the info. Speaking well for something after that trip says something about the things.
