I ordered a 360M on Wednesday and it was here Friday.
It was just not a priority at the time so I did not jump on the Smart Tires on that Flea-Bay deal. Stupid me
So now with the Avon's on and approaching the 3000 plus on them, I thought I would start looking for a system monitor PSI to rule out low tire pressure as an issue. Not that I was real bad checking, but I wanted to be spot on even more so.
You guys have to know I was so paranoid on the Avon fronts failing so early, I scarfed 2 of the AV-45's from JP Cycles for 39.00 each in anticipation of the Avon 4500-5000 mile self destruction reports.
Ahh but I digress.
So I call Doran and of course my first question was how long does a sensor last? Answer was 5-7 years.
OK, so what does a new sensor cost in five years? Answer 25.00.
OK ship it out. Now it is not cheap at 249.00 and it lacks Temp which I would have liked to had, I think?
It comes with a remote light so you can put it out with, or without the display, well guess which I used
It comes with a bar mount and then has rubber inserts from 7/8" to 1 1/4" that go in depending on bar diameter. Mine was 7/8" with the micrometer or close enough. Only one problem, you have to hack plastic on the handle bar covers which I was fully prepared to do, and you need to shim the clamp as the bar clamp will not slide past the master cylinder with the 7/8" insert in. So I slide it in used pieces of the 7/8" to build out the clamp and it was/is golden. Ran it down the handle bar, used a 3' industrial tie wrap to push it down, the fished it through the Moto Lights wiring with it and tied it in to the Centrec 5 AMP slot under the seat. Those wraps are just super wire snakes.
Got it wired in and screwed the sensors on the valve caps, turned it on and BUSTED, Front 38 PSI, Red center tire symbol in between the two buttons is lighting up on the display and audible tone is working.
I set base line to 45 as with it set to first warn at 12.5% of baseline, I should then get a warning at 40 PSI or so. Rear I set to 53 to get a warning at 46 PSI. If it turns into a pain I will drop 1 PSI on each baseline.
Two things I like is they send very nice new metal stems, both flavors, strait and 90's. And you can use the sensors inside or out of the tire.
And the person I spoke to said to his knowledge Ride On would not harm them!
So here is the set up:
When power comes on you see this.
When you press the left button it cycles front to rear for like 10 or 15 seconds I guess, so you have time to glance at it:
Right button is for Back light.
Having fun and emptying the wallet.
Edit: This was after a ride and they had not cooled down yet. Pushing a bit I saw 47 on the front and 56 on the rear as highs. Cold they matched the gage I used to fill them perfectly.
