That's great! To be clear, you have the Careud?
Hi, can you confirm it is the Careud you have? Weight is not my concern, generally when things are smaller they weight less too. And unless someone knows better, there is no other TPMS that fits the 1000XR

Yes, I was concerned about that too, but so far so good, I have them since my bike was 15,000 kms on the odometer, now I got 37,000 and no problem at all... most of those km are on road trips going from 150 km/h to 170 km/h (here in Mexico we don't care much about speed limits  :001: )

I hope that info helps

Cheers

Thanks, gotta get my rear balanced anyway. TBH my concern is as our metal valves are horizontal, that the stresses on the valves at speeds might induce an eventual failure due to a load they weren't designed for.
I would like to work out how load they are pushing at an average 60mph say.
It's the design engineer side of my brain kicking in on this one.

here you go based on 10 grams weight. Each additional gram is just linear increase. This is for 60mtrs/sec (60*3.6=216kph) bike speed.

I have one that fits inside with a band like a huge jubilee clip.

I do have to tighten it on every tyre change though as it has been known to slip around and cause the front wheel to go out of balance.

Bought them from a company called Tyre Track, but they don't seem to be around anymore.
