I have my Doran sensors on the inside. People think a downside is if the sensor dies, you're stuck with a dead sensor until you change your tire. This is not a problem. Just mount the new sensor on the outside. When it's time to change the tire, get rid of the dead sensor and put the new one on the inside.just looked at the doran they come with metal 90deg stims I do like the idea of being able to mount them inside, would there be a downside to that. I like being able to add air wo taking the sensors off. is there any locking mecinism on the sensors?
I installed a rocker switch to turn the Doran TPMS off. I leave it on 24/7, and turn it off when the bike goes down for its winter nap. The battery drain is negligible. Advantage of leaving it on is that you get an immediate reading as Dennis mentioned. Also, if something happens to go wrong when the bike is sitting idle in the garage, the sensor will pick this up and sound the alarm.what I like most about them is I don't have to ride a few blocks to get a "fresh" reading from the sensors.
... usually, just starting the bike provides enough vibration to wake them up so I know if my pressure needs attention before I leave the house.
This is exactly what just happened. Returned from a one-week business trip to find the red warning light flashing on my Doran TPMS. Before I left I had been playing around with air pressure when the tire was hot (that's a non-no), and had let too much air out.if something happens to go wrong when the bike is sitting idle in the garage, the sensor will pick this up and sound the alarm.
I'd be looking at Doran. $199.99 on their website. Includes 90 degree valve stems. Few extra dollars, but excellent quality. A few friends of mine purchased systems like the one you are looking at with a monitor that hangs off the keychain. They velcroed the monitor to their bikes, but in the end just didn't like the system. Don't know what the make was. (BTW, what is the gray and black rectangular item in the picture, just below the monitor?)Or have good advice?
