I have the fobo bike tpms and like it. I too recommend the steel valve stems. I got the "T" valve from them for easy of use.

How do the tpms work with green slime or ride-on tire sealant?

DO NOT use FOBO with rubber valve stems. The instructions on measuring rubber stem deflection and any person that tells you anything else is a lying. Period.

You will need a tire are steel valve stems.

But other than that I agree it works great!

Well Just checked out the FOBO site to see if they would work for me and this was on the home page-

"Please be aware:
FOBO Bike sensors will not fit Harley Davidson motorcycles with side mounted valve stems or dual rotors. They will work on front wheels with single rotor only. Clearance must be checked before riding."

This leaves aout us ultra riders and those of us with side stems! moving on.....

When I got my FoboBike for my '15 RG they did not have an HD or dual rotor warning. Just one that recommended metal stems, but new rubber stems were fine. The rubber stem tore and I slowly lost pressure. Got the FoboBike alarms. Replaced with the metal T valve stems. No clearance or other problems. Different rims could have the valve stem hole located off center which could be a problem. Tape a quarter to the valve stem to get an idea about clearance.
