I'm curious...can the DealerTool turn off the TPMS such that the idiot light doesn't come on if I remove my dying TPMS sensors in favor of an easily serviceable aftermarket setup? If no, would a dealer have a way to do this?

Thanks!

Yes, Dave.  I turned mine off last summer with Dealer Tool.

Thank you T800XC!

That is fantastic news, that I can turn TPMS off with the dealertool, and reactivate it when I replace the dead batteries in my sending units.  I had just done this with my Kawasaki Concours 14, before it was wrecked.  I will install new batteries at the next tire change.

Have a Great Day!

Why bother? Just buy a cheap system where you can change the batteries yourself. I use  one of these on my TTSE.

Hi!
I have several reasons for the battery replacement, rather than ditching the whole system.
I'm pretty sure that the dead batteries are the original ones from 2013.
I'm pretty sure that new batteries will last far longer than a set of tires will last me.
Also, I have the batteries on the shelf, since it was just in October of 2020 that I replaced them on the Concours 14.
The hardest part of the job is the tire change.  I changed the batteries in each wheel of the Concours 14 in about 10 minutes.
Since you can shut the nag light off on the Triumph, I can just check the tires until it is time for a tire change.
No extra wiring required.
On the Concours, there is not just a nag screen, the entire display flashes TPMS battery warning.  It is ANNOYING! :233:

Have a Great Day!

IIRC, the batteries are not replaced. The complete sensors are replaced and cost about the same as the tires. Not cheap. Besides, mine never lasted as long as my tires before getting the "TPMS battery low"  message--and my tires didn't last all that long!

Hi
I'm sure that the dealer will only replace the whole thing.  The TPMS sensors that they have, or can get, are probably several years old too.  Yamaha, Kawasaki, and Honda all use this same sensor. https://triumphparts.englemotors.com/p/Triumph__Trophy/Wheel-Sensor-Unit--TPMS--315/72784254/T2504222.html?partner=googlebase_adwords&kwd=&origin=pla&partnerDevice=c&userLocation=9017330  The one on the Kawasaki has a straight air inlet, but the sensor part is the same.  You can take it apart and put a fresh battery into it, if you know how to solder.  I had to add a 1 inch jumper to the batteries that I have.  The useful life of these batteries is only about 0.2vdc.  (A 3.2vdc battery is new and fresh, and at less than 3.0vdc is dead, as far as the sensor is concerned.)
It's fantastic that we can get to the settings for these in the Trophy.  I did not have any of these abilities with the Concours.

When I replace my TPMS sending unit batteries, I will take pictures and post them on the forum.

Somebody has already done that here--but a few years ago. I recall seeing such photos here quite a while back.

Has anyone ever found a cheaper replacement for the OEM TPMS sensors that can be made to work with the Trophy?
