Tire Pressure Monitor

A post on leaky tubes today reminded me of a post that I wrote in a blog about a Tire Pressure Monitor System that I installed on my 2019 KLX250. Rather than take that thread off it's prime topic, thought I'd just post a link here. The system I have is the CareUD Motorcycle Tire Monitoring System (about $50 on Amazon). It works perfectly fine. The question that I was working on is whether these devices have a place in dual sport.

I got the monitor and it is pretty sweet. ZERO relevant directions so I just hooked it up and left it at that for now. My rear tire hasn't leaked since I put it on last night so leads me to believe it might be the valves on these tubes I got from this dealer. We'll see in a few days. I love it!

If you set that up without the instructions, you're a genius!

If you need them, I can get a screenshot.

I don't know if anyone is interested, but I put Slime tire pressure valve caps on, if you aren't familiar with them they replace your valve stem caps and you buy them with different psi indicators, I think I went with 32 pounds on my KLR. They visibly show green when the tire has at least 32 psi yellow when its below that and red if lower than a certain psi. They cost about $8 and take about 20 seconds to install. I got mine at Oreilly's but I'm sure everybody else carry's them. I know you can buy them at 36 psi as well. A quick glance at your tires tells you if you are ok or not. It would be nice to see your pressure as you ride however.

Another option is, called tire minders. I have it on the camper tires. Tells temp and psi on all 4 tires in the position they are in. You can set high and low alarm thresholds, and it tells the temp if a tire is getting hot, or a sticky break, or bearings going bad. They can be removed and put on a bike and or trailer anything with a valve stem. I think it was $160 for 4 monitors and the charger and monitor..

I've got another brand on my Motorhome's 6 tires and the two tires on the trailer I tow behind. The last trip I took, it said all my tires were fine. That was kind of funny since my wife was pulling the trailer with my truck and sometimes we'd be 20 miles apart. The range was very impressive!!! It must use satellites because there were high mountains between us too .
