Dyna beads and TPWS

Postby tech1 » Sun Jun 17, 2012 11:37 pm



Hello everyone
What are the thoughts on Dyna beads in tires with tire pressure sensors? Ok or damaging sensors? Beads beating up the sensors? I have them in my other bikes BUT have hesitated on my 09 with TPWS.
Thanks Tech 1

I have them in my 09 with TPMS and I don't see any problems. They may be beating up the sensors, but I cannot see them. The tires remain perfectly balanced, and the sensors are still working. I have about 1500 miles since I installed the tires with dyna beads.

With the internal TPWS, Dyna Beads will have no effect - the beads are slung out around the circumference of the tire, and the TPWS sensors are strapped to the inner part of the wheel rim.

With the aftermarket TPWS that uses a valve stem cap sensor, the beads can get up and block the sensors, so filtered valve cores should be used (you can get them from their web site for $1.40 each (look at the bottom of the page).
