A new addition, in part:





I used the factory GPS power plug to power the TPMS.



Next, installing the sensors IN the wheels.

I don't mean to hijack...

two questions on the TPMS.

1. Besides the obvious why do you want a TPMS? Is the purpose to identify a tire going flat as you ride? I know that I do not check tire pressures during the day. Just in the morning before I head out.

2. Can you get a second set of wheel sensors, I would hate to have to swap the sensors when I swapped the wheels.

Hijack over.

I'm looking for a TPS system that can show me what my pressures are before I leave the garage. Can this system do that?

Two reasons, I am too lazy to check my tires daily, and it gives peace of mind that I am good at any time. Oh, I guess three, this tells tire temp, which will help me to optimize tire pressure.

From what I understand you can use a second set with no issues.

$20 tank bag ring.

Finished my Tire Pressure Monitoring System for my GS.

Broke down the wheels and tires and added the new sensors. They double as valve stems.






I like that you get instant pressure and temps of each tire.

I've had Orange TPMS systems for a while on the bike and in the car. On the bike I had issues with sensors not communicating with display in a cold weather. Orange was very good with sending replacement parts, but ultimately I could improve it by connecting the ground wire directly to the battery. Still, the pressure sometimes didn't read at the temperatures below freezing. Recently my rear sensor died for good. The system is about 2 years old now. My car setup was worse, after few days of work it stopped showing all wheels. Usually it shows only 1 or 2 of them. I guess they would exchange the sensors, but it required remounting of the tires, which would be the same $ as the new system.
Last year Orange bailed out of US market, I'm glad they are back. When TPMS works it is very helpful.

Good to know! I attached mine to the GPS plug wire. We shall see how that works when cold weather comes back.

Almost forgot, I reviewed this system a while ago http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=711933
To answer your question, the sensor send updates every 30 seconds when wheels are not moving and more frequently while in motion. So it will read the pressure in the garage, but you might need to wait a bit for the numbers to show up.

I see that JVB is up to his PennyTech mods again. They look great. Back when he rode an ST he didn't care so much about how they looked

The ST was not as versitile as the GS! Besides, it was nearly fully farkled anyhow.

Now that it has been several months since your install, how happy are you with the product? Would you do it again. I am getting ready to but a new set of knobbies on and I am on the fence.
