I just can't bring myself to purchase two new TPMS sensors for $500.00 and then pay the dealer to flash the computer as well. 

I don't blame you, dealer prices are just too high with the majority of bike parts I'm afraid.
Personally I'd try and fit a new battery back in the housing of the sensor rather than 'piggy back' a battery holder on top of it, I know it's not going to be much extra weight but it could affect the balancing of a wheel??

My preference would be to fit one inside the existing housing.  Just not real easy for someone with lackluster soldering skills.  Tiny stuff to have to work with.

Here is a video of how to replace the batteries with ones that have leads.  You can buy them from many places.

Link to google search for batteries with leads.

This guy's video shows more detail, he managed to fit the battery inside the original housing too.

Reasonably straight forward process to replace the TPMS batteries. Seems that the most important thing to remember [if your riding a Concourse/GTR1400] is, don't forget to replace the front fender/guard bolts.  :008: :008:
