Only took one time to pay off!
I installed the system installed on my 2008 GSA about 1 year ago.. In general, I find it a nice reference for pressure , but also as a rough indication of tire temp. A couple of weeks ago, I topped off my front tire about an hour
before leaving for work ( early in the am, dark and below freezing temps ). When I was leaving the driveway, I thought I noticed the steering was a little vague when I turned, but wrote it off as the bike ( and me ) just waking up. A half mile down the road, the red blinking light on the display alerted me, I checked the readings and the saw the front tire only had 11 psi of air! ( down from 34 an hour ago ). I carefully stopped, turned around and rode back home. I tried pumping up the tire, but a leaky rubber gasket on the bottom of the metal valve stem quickly made it obvious what the problem was. I replaced the stem the next day, It was fine, but the washer had backed off, causing the leak. The seal probably broke when I attached and removed the connector from the air compressor. I am very happy I hadn't reached the highway with what would have been close to a complete flat by then.
