Tire pressure monitors are good and bad.
Let you know the pressure (good) but they can be finicky. The first ones didn't say the actual pressure, but just had a light come on if the pressure between the tires (including the spare) differed by more than a couple psi.
Had a lot of (ignorant) customers come in with tire press light on, all they needed was a couple pounds of air in one tire (usually the spare) but they can never figure it out!

It does????

um... you are NOT a mechanic in the military.

it is SUPPOSED to adjust air pressure... in THEORY it works great.

Mechanic step #1 on anything with CTIS (central tire inflation system)
1. disable CTIS

Yeah, being in the Guard, the stuff sits a lot more than it's used... that is what causes most of the problems.

Gets sent to us, and we have to make it operable...

I think it's more that i'm a mechanic...
The reason I see equipment is cause it DOESN'T work...

Otherwise, i'd get bored.

someone should send you a few fully working trucks, just to screw with you once in awhile.

life is but a way of killing time until you die. why care how you live, just have fun while you can.

i don't understand why a sensor is needed. low pressure will affect handling and is very obvious to the rider. sorta like using a speedometer on a racetrack.

laziness?

if you ride everyday you'll notice the change, if you ride occasionally, or jus on the weekends, u should check it before you leave the house. seriously takes a minute max.


waste of money imo

I thought the temperature part would be more useful... Plus, for the 'gadget guys' it would just be neat...

a spare tire and folding combination stand would be more useful...
