Garmin Zumo TPMS Question

Recommended Posts

Saw online that the  Garmin Zumo 595 TPMS (tire pressure management function) will work on the Niken (3 wheel display of tire pressure in all three wheels. 

Has anyone confirmed this In real life?

I can’t really confirm, but in my experience, there are more reliable systems out there than the Zumo one.  I had issue after issue with my Zumo TPMS sensors on one of my previous bike.   Finally gave up on it.  Several of the people I ride with have bought inexpensive systems off Amazon and had near perfect results.

Garmin TPMS tracks pressure in up to four tires. I just added pressure sensors to my two-wheeled bike since I already had the Zumo 395. When I paired the sensors with the Zumo it gave a number of different tire configurations to chose from. Cannot comment on the reliability yet, but I am aware that it goes through batteries rather quickly despite the manual stating sensor batteries last 300 hours. 

If you do get them, keep in mind that the Zumo has to be in motorcycle, not car, mode for it to display tire pressures. It doesn't state this in the manual, and it took some googling before I figured out why I couldn't get mine to display.

Okay, he ordered his from Alibaba which is apparently a Chinese Internet sales site similar to Amazon.  I did a quick search and did see atleast one unit that was designed for 3-wheeled vehicles.  
Good luck!!!

Found it. $60 isn't too bad.

Looks good!  How does that price compare to similar (3-wheel) sensors on Amazon?

89.99 for Amazon https://www.amazon.com/SYKIK-SRTP630-pressure-monitoring-wheelers/dp/B07ZL2ZB92/ref=sr_1_3?dchild=1&keywords=motorcycle%2Btrike%2Btpms&qid=1600220519&sr=8-3&th=1

However reviews are definitely mixed with regards to quality.
