Malcam TPMS

Anyone ever use this system. I was going to go with the FOBO system. I like that this has its own constant display (re-chargeable). It has good reviews the only downside is you cant set individual tire alarms, but I figure with the display always on that wouldn't really be a problem. I will get something after I get new tires and change to metal valve stems, was thinking this looked pretty good.

Where is the display? and how do you see it while moving? I have the Fobo and I don't need the display, if there is any variance in tire pressure I get a loud alarm through the Boom system.

Are you running the FOBO system with rubber or metal stems?

My CVO has metal stems, when i first got the fobo system it almost killed me, I installed them on my 14 FLHTK with the rubber stem, started loosing air going 75 mph, almost completely sheering off the rubber stem.

what caused it to almost shear off the stems, the centrifugal force of the pressure cap on the rubber stems?

I also have the fobo TPMS system, and basically, yes thatís what can happen. I have had this system on my last two RG, and am happy with it. I purchased FOBOs ďTĒ valves so I can add air without removing the unit.

It has a LCD display that can attach to the bars. The display is rechargeable. The FOBO system looks great I just like having the pressures always visible. In my truck I always have the display set to tire pressures, just a glitch I must have. I will use my phone for GPS, I don't even try using the Harley GPS.

Had to be a combination of both, this topic is covered extensively at the other forum with most experiencing the same issue with rubber stems.

Thanks. They recommend using metal stems. Just wondering if I should factor in cost to get the new stems installed.

I have FOBO also, I didnít even think about using rubber stems because of the information I read from others. The metal stems were only a few dollars, nothing major.
