How do you like the Doran TPMS? Did you mount the sensors external or internal?
Yes I was aware of the two, I just preferred a single black stalk. They are both in that price range though. That bottom nut is 9.00
I love the Doran and it is about a year and a half old. Customer service is great. I lost a sensor and they asked if I had done some things and I said yes. They were prompt in getting me a new sensor. When I followed up they said there was an oily substance in it. It dawned on me I was using Ride On which is an awesome product. I said this and said you may want to take that off your Web Site that you are Ride On compatible. I had that mounted external rear. I also had one mounted internal front with Ride On also. It started to not pick up as quickly same as the rear and I called. They shipped another no issue. It cost me my time dismounting and mounting the tire and changing a metal 90*, and put a strait in so the sensor would fit. But it allowed me to do this when I was due to change my front tire. I now use Dyna Beads and have not had any other issues. I do carry a tire plugger and air pump. NTSAT (not to start a thread)
I think it was Dan who had a bunch of a type that would be my preference as it gave temp. It was internal with a band strap around the wheel. I did not know enough at that point in my LT Journey as they do not make them any longer.
However I was on it all day yesterday and checked it constantly. When we were in cool valleys I saw 44-46 from 41 start, and 52-54 from 48 on the rear in 68-75* temps. On the highways at 72 MPH GPS, 81* Temp for a good 1.5 hours I saw 47 front and 56 rear. That is how I gauge temp. If I ever saw a huge rise, I would know.
All that said it would be nice to have temp, but he Doran allows you a very simple install that if need be, can be protected by taking them off where you don't feel confident. I must confess I never take mine off. In the whole time they been on only one person asked me what they were. The bike has so much to look at I don't think most notice them.
I like it a lot because of its simplicity and it is very accurate, at least to the gauge in the side bag.
I know I like knowing pushing a button compared to crawling and under the rear tire, and
fussing with that front rotor
