Best Motorcycle TPMS

I'm looking to install TPMS on my non-TPMS bikes.
Specially the LT.


So far I've found:
- Internal: Orange M207 TPMS at $199.
- External: Various on Amazon. Some have raving reviews. At $39 - $110


For the external sensors I found the T-valve stems here: https://cyclemax.com/inc/sdetail/chr...ms/4102/261164


Has anyone had any experience with TPMS systems for bikes?

Re: Best Motorcycle TPMS

At least with your LT you will not have a clearance problem with a external TPM.
This one looks decent.

Re: Best Motorcycle TPMS

So this is what I got:


T-valve stems: https://www.ebay.com/itm/HONDA-GOLDW...72.m2749.l2649


RAM Ball Mount for the LT Handlebar: https://www.ebay.com/itm/GPS-Ball-Mo...72.m2749.l2649


RAM Mount Socket Arm: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1


CAREUD Motorcycle External TMPS (tamper proof sensors): https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1


The sensors only need to have a battery replaced.
The indicator is motion sensitive and the Lithium battery lasts a while.


I'll report when I get all the parts.
I found out a few days ago while refilling air, that the front stem is all cracked.
The rear cracked and the guys at the tire-shop had stems.



So, I guess the valve stem replacement was necessary, and I justified all this expense in my head by convincing myself that LT tires are now scarce and expensive.


The T-valves wouldn't work on the K12R, but I found out that I can add the TPMS module to the K12R. I have the sensors and the module.

now, that I'll paint the wheels, replace tires and install the sensors, see if it works and report back.


Total expense was $140.
Close to the internal orange sensors... anyways.

Re: Best Motorcycle TPMS

BTW,


I bought a RDC module for the K12R.
Then bought the ZFE to accept it as well as a K13R KOMBI panel to read the RDC sensors.


Installed the RDC on the K12S to see if it would be read, and it did.
However, the Kombi does not show it.
Is this a recode by the dealer?
I have a GS-911, but I can't do "adaptations" or anything else.
This would be neat if it could be done.


Also, does anyone know what do I have to do to add traction control to both these bikes?
A recode as well?
Or get a new motronic unit? Would it work at once?
