hey David,

i respect your opinion on this subject even though i don't see a need for it when regular maint is abided by but what's next?.....maybe a remote to turn on the aircon/ heating before you get home, a light to tell you the toast and coffee is ready and the list goes on.....


p.s when you buy a new wing you are buying the whole of Honda HQ in America dinner with the profit they make and they still have money left over..

Rudy, agiNNer, someone who is against most everything. Bieng a southerner I would have thought you would be familiar with the term.
OK, I give up.

My wife's Buick has an interesting tire pressure sensor system on it - it uses the ABS sensors.

Afteryou check the tire pressures, you hit a button, and it resets the computer to "know" that the pressure is correct. Over the next few minutes of driving, using the ABS sensors for each wheel, it measures the number of times each tire rotates against the distance it knows it has driven (taken, I assume, off the speedo cable on the transmission).

If any tire starts to go low, the outside diameter of the tire is reduced, and that tire rotates faster. The computer sees this, and flicks a "tire pressure" warning light on. It will allow for (very) gradual tire wear, of course.

Neat system, and doesn't actually measure tire pressure at all.

I have heard of that system, don't know how well it works. Moot point anyway as the 09 wings are supposed to get the TPMS anyway.
Wonder if they got the idea from this thread?

I would be real surprised if Honda doesn't put tire pressure sensors on the next generation Wing.

The value of our lives comes not in what we do or whom we know, but by who we are.

Well my 09 has the pressure monitoring and it managed to fail in the first two weeks I owned it, parts on order, I hope this isnt a sign of things to come, my daughters dodge mini van has them and she has had nothing but trouble with em ever since. I dont have a problem checking my tires regularly, been doing for 40 some odd years now.

Like most here I check my tire pressures before every ride. Last year I went on a ride with friends to Calabogie (local twisties), a ride I've done many times before. Somewhere along the way I developed a slow leak and fortunately it was raining out so speeds were a little slower than normal. At our second stop of the day I checked the tire pressure, found the low tire, filled it and rode home slowly. With a TPMS I would have known much earlier that I had a problem.

Grumpa - I'm with you - TPMS is no substitute for routine maintenance but you can't check them when your riding. Anything that makes my Wing safer is good - my question still is how well do they really work?

TPMS works fine on my car.



A TPMS on my bike would just get in the way of my espresso maker...and satellite dish.





Without a ride...for now.
