    TPMS Replacement

    When I first joined there was some consternation about finding a suitable replacement for the TPMS sensors. Noticed this today at Bike Bandit, a pair for $150. Has anyone had any experience with them?

    Just had a look at your link. To me that means you have to purchase two, so thats $150 each, not $150 for two. I would call them to clarify before committing to  purchase.

    As I understand it, you want to replace the TPMS. If so. my question is, why do you want to replace them?

    If you are looking at replacing them because the Battery / Batteries arre low,
    there are several Topics within the Forum about replacing the TPMS batteries,
    rather than replacing the complete Unit. ( Although they are not designed as being replaceable ! ).

    Here's a Link to one of them : Replace TPMS Battery.

    Any new TPMS Sensor would also need to be programmed in to the Trophy ECU,
    and only a Dealer can do this, which they will charge for, so that's an additional cost
    on top of the already expensive Sensors, whereas if the batteries are replaced
    no additional programming is needed.

    As stated you would need two of those for nearly $300.  Plus the reprogramming cost (cost me $65 at the dealer last year)

    I was lucky enough to pick up a second set a while back and have replaced my originals.  In so doing I discovered there are two assembly methods, there is an openable unit and a potted unit filled with epoxy.  The epoxy filled unit I would consider to be very difficult to replace the batteries but the other I will try when the time comes.

    Several on fleabay, from a single at $26.99 all the way up to a pair at $150.00.  Look closely before you buy as some of them are epoxy filled and difficult to dig out the material to replace the battery, while others are two piece plastic affairs held together with tabs and need the label removed VERY carefully to open them so as not to ruin the serial number required for programming.  I have spare sets that can always get fresh batteries just before a tire change and be installed at new tire installation time and get programmed in.

    It is not difficult to clean the TPMS, it is very simple, that rubber is silicone and with a blade it is perfectly removed.

    I have 2 such TPMS and at both I removed the silicone seal in two minutes.

    If they are of that type, it is still better than the previous ones, I think that those with a silicone seal have less battery consumption, so the battery will be more durable.
