You never reported back! Being 84 I can not reach the back tire to measure the air pressure.

Mine is going strong after 3 years and one battery change on the sensors ( should have done it earlier )



and it is accurate.

Display seems a bit big and I see the same comments from other owners.

Its big enough to be easily visible - do you ever have a positive comment about anything ??? Gets tiresome.

This has worked perfectly for thress years and is visible and accurate and backlit. I just kept it in the glove box and would check from time to time.
Now it sits in a pocket on my tank bag.

Those are valve caps FFS....it's not very big.

Mac. I find that I don't check the pressure as often as I would like to due to all the known reasons that I do not need to rehash here. Two questions please. Will I need to get the tires balanced? Where did you mount yours and with what? Velcro, adhesive, etc. I have the 400, but I could use your idea at least to a certain extent. Thanks for the link.

Question Tire pressure monitors

Largely because the distribution chain 'leaked' and cheap less than adequate quality from Chinese origin entered the supply chain - and it is difficult from the packaging to determine the good from the dodgy.

I am aware there will be a much improved model available in early 2007 produced by a UK company which will be fully TUV approved. They have a US partner who will distribute in the States.

I have agreed to do some customer trials for them.

Wes - the right angle valve stems you are talking about - were they rubber or metal bodied?
I am still trying to find the valve cap monitors recommended for motorcycles. Years ago I found them on Ebay. They had the PSI number on the top. I bought 42 PSI for the rear and 34 for the front. They only came in even numbers. Any suggestions where I could find them??

Really, how hard is it to check the pressure with a $5 digital gauge once a week and check the rubber for wear and damage check the oil window and underside for leaks while there.

As far as I know there is no device yet to check the latter items, so you have to get down there anyway.
