TPMS Battery low
« on: December 06, 2014, 12:42:17 pm »
Just had the following message displayed that my battery in the rear TPMS unit is low.

Not sure this should be happening just six months of owning the bike from new and just clocking 5000 miles.

Any guidance on how long the battery should last?

Thanks GJ-Trophy :006:

1st bike Yamaha DT125, 2nd bike Yamaha XV535 Virago 3rd bike Honda CBR 1000 F, 4th bike Honda Hornet 600 (story to tell) 5th bike Suzuki B-King 1300, 6th bike Suzuki GSX1250 FA. Then comes the cream of them all the TTSE in Blue the best colour in my opinion ....... :-)

Hi

I get this message too.  I think  its related to the cold weather (there are some related threads).  I have noticed that once the bike warms up, if you stop the bike and restart, the message will clear.

Hi my bike will be two years old in March 2015 and was told by the dealer TPMS batteries are long life and should get as least 5 years out of them, I would asked the dealer should be under warranty as Triumph gives two years on new bikes? Not had a issue to date with them :046:

Same indication on my bike after 9 months of ownership, Triumph are replacing the unit on warranty. They should last 5 years at least and the battery itself is not replaceable, the whole TPMS unit needs replacing, although I do believe it is possible DIY.

I have the same message right now. I had the same for the front tire in less than 500 miles, which was taken care of by the dealer at my 500 mile service, along with leaking forks.  Both times was around this time of year--when it gets cold.  I know battery technology for this type of stuff has improved greatly recently, so I assume new TPMS  batteries with soon be better, if not already.

BTW, I've noticed with the TPMS low battery message, the PSI is just as accurate as always. I will wait until I need a new real tire for mine, which won't be long from now anyway.

It seems to me that the alarm simply comes on at too high of a voltage. The battery seems to last a
long time even after the TPMS alarm.

For what it's worth I have gotten the notice just once (knock on wood).  Happened on a normal afternoon, average temps, no precipitation.  Only distinguishing factor was that I hadn't ridden the bike in nearly two weeks.  (had been riding my Sprint ST)

My front started giving low voltage readings when it got cold, below 50F...   Dealer replaced under warranty at the 20K miles inspection, said it should last for 5 years or so....
