The monitor draws 60mA to 125 mA of power when it is under power and fully functional. The monitor could drain vehicle's battery over an extended period of time. Hooking the monitor up to enable the patented "sleep mode" will drastically reduce the power consumption over a long period. If storing for over 3 months, you might consider unplugging the monitor and removing the sensors for storage. (TIP: Clean egg cartons or plastic bags work well for storing the sensors.) Each sensor has its own serial number laser etched into the cover. Be sure to record the sensor ID numbers so the sensors can be replaced on the same tire location when re-installing them, eliminating the need for reprogramming. If a low-pressure alert is given while in storage, the sensor will alert until the pressure is corrected and could dramatically affect the battery life of the sensors. Sensor will shut down and stop transmitting when less than 5 lbs of air pressure are present. When putting system back on, power the monitor first, and then screw the sensors onto their original wheel locations. Pressure readings will display within a few minutes on the monitor. Your Doran 360™ tire pressure monitoring system will now be active.
No. The Doran 360M™ motorcycle tire pressure monitoring system is adaptable to your needs. The LED warning light is an optional method of warning the driver of an alert. The user can hide the monitor and still be notified by the red LED light. It can be used together with the monitor for additional visual warnings for the driver.
No. You can install the sensors on the exterior of the factory valve stem. Be sure to test that the sensors will clear all of the components around the wheel before riding the motorcycle. A lot of people start out with the sensors on the outside of the wheels and then when they purchase new tires they have the sensors installed on the inside of the wheels. It is your choice.
Doran monitors are patented with a "sleep mode" so that data transmissions from tire pressure sensors are received while the ignition is keyed off. Active tire pressures and alarm conditions are immediately visible on the Doran monitor/display when the ignition is keyed on.
The monitor and LCD display is similar in size to a standard chalkboard eraser or dollar bill. The dimensions are width (5.75") x height (2.25") x depth (1.00").
Tap any button on the Doran monitor/display to silence the audible alert.
In addition to our internal quality tests, the Doran 360™ Tire Pressure Monitoring System has been approved by the FCC and tested to SAE standards for temperature, vibration and chemical/water resistance at an independent a2La accredited testing facility.
Yes. The wire has a tracer on one side so you can be sure to re-attach the wires properly. We suggest that you solder the wires back together when you have figured the proper length that you need and use shrink-tube to re-seal the wire from the moisture and the elements that you may encounter on the road.
Make sure to leave the sensors off of the valve stem until the system is fully programmed. Once you have all of the sensor codes programmed into the correct locations, exit out of program mode and then screw on the sensors. The sensors won't signal the monitor otherwise.
If that doesn't work, make sure the valve stems are releasing air properly. You should hear a hiss of air when screwing on the sensors. If you don't hear it, your valve stem needs to be fixed or replaced in order for the sensor to be able to properly read air pressure.
Yes it can. You can move the monitor to a new vehicle and reprogram the Doran 360™ Tire Pressure Monitoring System to the new tires and you are on your way.
The Doran 360RV™ only works with 12VDC but all other Doran tire monitoring systems work in both 12VDC and 24VDC voltage.
NSP= No Sensors Programmed
You'll seee this until the system is programmed with the sensor codes and the monitor has received a signal from the sensors.
It is recommended that tire pressures be checked regularly using a high-quality pressure gauge when the tires are at ambient temperatures, in addition to the use of a tire pressure monitoring system. Remove the sensor, check pressure, and inflate if necessary. When you return the sensor to the valve stem, the sensor will begin to read the current pressure and return to its normal operation.
Immediately pull over and check low tire. Physically check the tire and repair, if necessary. Be sure to check valve stem for damage. Soap the valve stem to identify any leaks.

No. The signal that is transmitted is a RF signal and is much like a cell-phone signal. The FCC requires us to allow all other RF signals to interfere with our signals and this can cause the motorcycle tire pressure monitoring system to occasionally miss a transmission from the sensors. If this persists then you could have a damaged sensor or the batteries could be weak.
You have wired your motorcycle tire pressure monitoring system to a switched 12-volt power supply and the monitor comes on with the motorcycle. When this happens the monitor will have to receive a new reading from the sensors in order to display the proper information. The sensors only send a signal every six (6) minutes. Thus, it will depend on when the last radio frequency ("RF") signal was sent compared to when the power was turned on as to how long it will take to have a new reading. It should not take more than six (6) minutes to receive the proper update.
The Doran 360™ tire pressure monitoring system was designed with a "Green Means Good™" indicator light, which lets the driver know all of the tire pressures are within the specified range. The operator can see each tire's pressure by using the four-way navigational buttons. In addition, there are multiple alarm types that are built-in to the system to make the driver aware of any tire pressure issues.
