    MOT's

    Well first MOT after 27,000 miles and it got through. No precautions at all. It did pull up that the tyres are wearing unevenly though! Might be due to the fact ihefront needs replacing and the back was replaced a few months ago!!  :821:

    Got mine coming up at the end of Feb... plus a 20,000 mile service and the 3 year service too... going to be an expensive month!

    Hopefully it will get through without issue, going to buy some new brake pads and put them in the top box as if anything, they might need replacing.

    That'd be about $225 in my money.    I hadn't realized that the whole tire sensor needs to be changed when the batteries run out?

    How long do they last?

    Our "state inspection" process (eq. MOT) is pretty basic here in our state - headlights, horn, tires, and you're about done .... $10 once a year.    I suspect they'll completely do away with it in future.

    Where did you get them sensors and the programming done? I thought that Triumph dealers want 195 for just one wheel sensor??

    The bike I've just bought is not even 2 years old yet, the 'low battery' warning for the rear tyre keeps coming on, going by the stickers in the handbook, the rear one has already been replaced.

    Someone needs to figure out a way of just replacing the batteries at least.
