Tyre Pressure Sensor

Suzuki Tyre Pressure Monitor

Suzuki Tyre Pressure Monitor

Tyre pressures are so important particularly on a sportsbike that I fitted a Suzuki Tyre Pressure Monitor, TPMS.  This is a fairly cheap unit that continuously shows Front and Rear tyre pressures and temperatures, and gives a visual and audible warning if tyre Pressures drop below a particularly level.

The display unit has a built in lithium battery and a USB port for charging, i fitted it just below the dash with a permanent USB connection. The display sleeps when it detects no movement and wakes instantly when the bike moves.  The sensors attach to the valves.  The Suzuki Tyre Pressure monitor costs less than 40GBP.
