TIP: changing tires with tire pressure monitoring system
« on: July 22, 2013, 07:52:36 PM »
A warning/tip to owners of the SE model with the tire pressure monitoring system.

Since these systems are new to motorcycles, you might want to warn the person changing your tire, there is a black electronic device located directly under the valve stem.  I did not know this, and almost destroyed the device dismounting the old tire.  The tire machine hit it pretty good, but it still works.   :002:

Thanks for pointing this out.  I would hope all dealers would know this but it can't hurt to remind them

right, but good to know if you get the change made outside of the dealer's network, for sure they will not know!

Yup they broke mine . Had to get a new one on the dealers dime . They should be aware that they have to be installed the right way as well or they will be taking the tire back off again .

Is there problem with distancing the wheel from the bike when changing the tire?  In other words does the TPMS unit lose the connection with the bike if it gets too far away from the bike?  On the Corvette TPMS if the wheel gets more than 20 feet from the car one has to resync the wheel with the car unit.  I ask because I am taking the wheel off the bike and taking just the wheel in for a tire change.

I took the rear wheel off my Trophy when I got my puncture and drove it to the tyre fitter to get it replaced. That was 15 miles away and didn't need any resynching so I think you should be fine!

Good to hear.  Likely technology improvements since emu Corvette was built

As far as remembering the sensor when changing tires...on the rear, we did, no problems. Changing the front tire a couple of days later, we forgot...ripped the sensor right off. $138 plus tax! Are they insane! Needless to say, I'll do without for awhile.

The good news is, the readout shows only dashes and doesn't effect any other readouts on the display. And of course I can scroll it off the display. I'll probably replace it when I change tires again.
