Tire Pressure Monitoring System Installed
« on: June 05, 2020, 02:25:01 AM »
Below are some photos of the stand alone Tire Pressure Monitoring System (model: CAREUD M3-WI) I installed.  Here is an unboxing video somebody else did: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gatQysamVnQ.

Rechargeable wireless display


Stuck out too much when mounted on the handler bar so I clamped it on the windscreen support.


Had to file down the transmitter/sensor for the front valve stem so it did not rub the brake caliper


No clearance issues on the rear


Overall it works pretty well.  It reads about 2 psi higher than my manual tire pressure gauge.  Display is easily read in all lighting conditions, even direct sunlight.  I think I will play around with mounting points a bit.

looks interesting!

How much do the 'Caps' weigh, and how far extra do they stick out?

Caps weight only 6 grams and add about 5 mm to the length of the stem.  That 5 mm is too much for the tight clearance on the front wheel between the stem and the inside edge of the brake caliper.  That is why I had to file down the edge of the front sensor.  There is about 1 mm of clearance now.

The bar mount that came with it was not large enough to clamp between the bar risers.  I did not like it mounted by either grip or where I had it on the windscreen support.  I found an old throttle rocker that I used to mount it between the bar risers, much cleaner.

My TPMS system looks identical to yours but with no name, mine has no name on the handlebar unit and no name in the box.  Mine also is an M3 model.  However, my front tire valve stem sensor does not touch the brake caliper.  Although it looks like the clearance is zero!!  If you zoom into my picture, you can see a tiny shiny streak below the "F", so I guess the clearance was just a tiny bit below zero.  I like it, it works fine.

I've got one of these on order as well. I reckon for about A$50 delivered, even if it's not 100% accurate, you can't really go wrong.

That looks good.
Is it pretty easy installation?

Thank you

Straight forward installation... although you might struggle a bit trying to understand the "chinenglish" (depending on where you got it from  :038:)
Took me a few minutes to work out the temperature min/max settings but then it all fell into place...
Good little device... for when you're unsure as to whether you have a slow puncture... would recommend!  :305:

Just another "Farkle" to add to the list.

I wonder how long the battery in the sender lasts?
[EDIT] - I see they claim 2 years, and that the battery is renewable. :028:

Come to think of it - I wonder how long the units in the Garmin TPS last?
