A bunch of us just pick up a remote wireless tire pressure monitor for motorcycles at an amazing price. This is the type that screws onto the tire valve. Does anyone have any info on this type? :confused:
The one in this link looks the same as what we bought.

I read the one review on Hal's site and the user claimed the weight of the sensor, coupled with the centrifugal force, cracked his valve stem. I suspect they did not have metal valve stems. The 1800 comes stock with rubber stems.

I had that exact system on my 08 Gold Wing, they are O.K. to monitor your tires I found them to be off a pound or two, no big deal. But in order to check the accurate tire pressure or add air you have to remove them and that takes a small wrench that is supplied, still no big deal. For the money it's a good unit. My Kawasaki C14 has an internal TPMS and it's great. I never had a problem with the extra weight on the valve stems just make sure the keepers are in place.
