Correct.  It was not the battery light.

I had both TPMS under warranty after 18 months from new.
This lasted 24 months before showing low battery again. I have price replacements but for £180 a pair, I have had my dealer disable the alarm indication.
I guess the problem is the batteries have age on them before fitting.

My guess is that the problem is actually within the ECU/software of the bike,....just like with the 'bikes battery low voltage' message, the threshold for activating these messages weren't set low enough.

FYI I just saw that Pure Triumph has the tire pressure monitors in stock at $140 USD, and if they are indeed the type they show in the picture they are the housing that can be opened up and have the battery replaced.  Anyone that already has that type on their Trophy could always have a set available to pop in brand new batteries and get fresh sensors at their next tire change.  The ones that were installed in mine under warranty are a completely epoxy sealed unit made in Switzerland, NOT the plastic body type that can be opened up.  Due to a snafu at a non Triumph dealer installing a rear tire I DO have one spare of a set of the plastic body version that were freebies, but they have straight stems (even better on the rear), so I will always have a fresh one to install when a new tire is mounted.  Not exactly a ridiculous price to always have good sensors on hand.

Don't forget that a Dealer must program the new Sensors to the Bike,
as there is currently no alternative solution for doing this.

That will be an additional cost that needs to be factored in !

In the past if I had my dealer mount tires (they have matched internet sale prices for me), they programmed the sensors at no charge since it didn't take much time.  Too bad Dealertool can't do it.

My rear TPMS didn't work from the day I bought the bike! It took the Dealersship four attempts to fix it. Eventually they just replaced the sensor itself.

Hi All,
After having low batt warning display showing for a couple of years I decided to replace one. After removing the front tyre I followed the advice given on this site. A couple of things I did do which have not been mentioned are:-

1. I checked the original Batt Voltage. It showed 2.7v.
2. Checked the replacement. The first one was only 3.1v. The second Batt I had was 3.3v. I chose the second Batt.

The work was fairly easy. Make sure you don't confuse positive with negative.





Practice soldering on waste material if you are rusty before starting with the battery. Make sure your iron is hot.

Cheers,
Wayne
