    TIRE PRESSURE WHEEL SENSORS - 2013 TROPHY ES

    Hi folks,  I am new to the forum and a new Triumph owner if you don't count my Triumph Tiger of 1977.  Anyway here is my issue.   I recently purchased a used 2013 Trophy ES from a non Triumph dealer.  Once I got it home I realized that it is showing a lower warning message for low battery in both TPS.     I checked with my nearest Triumph dealer  and they advised that the sensors are not serviceable and they are $168CDN each yet I see Triumph sensors online for much less usually sold in pairs.  Anyone have any suggestions.   Thanks, Tim

    Hi Timonbik,

    I'm new here too.  I live up near Owen Sound.  I just bought a used 2013 a few weeks back too.  Same issue with my TPMS sensors in both by wheels.  I get the "low battery tire pressure" message.  I had my bike at Inglis Cycle in London two days ago for 16,000 km service.  They decided to skip dealing with the issue altogether and just told me to wait until I had my tires replaced to get new sensors.  They told me there was no way they could disable the TPMS.  So that's going to drive me nuts staring at that message all the time.  Interestingly, Sturgess Cycle in Hamilton sent me an email and said that they could disable the TPMS.  "We can disable the TPMS warning via the Triumph diagnostic software" is what they wrote to me.  Maybe try Sturgess.  They are your closest dealer.  Or Rochester?

    The message doesn't bother me but if the red warning light comes on once the battery goes totally dead, that will drive me crazy.  I too will wait until tires are changed before addressing the problem.

    You should be able to clear the message by pushing the Info button on the left side handlebar cube.  If you get the message for front and rear, you'll have to press it twice.  More than likely the system still works - check your TPMS reading against a pressure gauge.  This system will work for years with the low battery indication - just clear it.

    A couple of points :

    Some Forum Members HAVE managed to change the batteries in their TPMS Sensors.
    I haven't had the need to do so myself yet, but there's a Forum Topic about it here :
    Replace tpms battery.

    Secondly, if replacing the batteries is not within your skillset, and you decide that
    you would rather have the system disabled than pay out for new sensors,
    then any authorised Triumph Dealer CAN do this with their diagnostics software,
    although some Multi-Franchise dealers outside the UK don't seem too familiar with the process !

    An alternative is to buy your own After Market "DealerTool" device,
    which sells from the UK, though they do ship around the World at reasonable cost. 

    The Device needs connecting between a Windows PC running the DealerTool software,
    and the Diagnostics connector found strapped to the top of the Main Battery.

    In addition to being able to disable or enable the TPMS System,
    DealerTool can carry out many functions relating to the servicing,
    maintenance and diagnostics of your Trophy, and can pay for itself
    the first time it is used compared to Dealer hourly labour charges !

    It can NOT however, be used to program in NEW TPMS Sensors,
    or update the Trophy ECU with any new engine tune / map.

    Here's a Link to their web site : DealerTool Home Diagnostic solution.

    Cheers  :821:

    Indeed, as Coco says well. You can replace the batteries without any problem.

    Get an extra set and put fresh batteries in the spare just before a tire change and have them replaced and activated when you put new tires on, take the old ones, wait until just before a tire change and put new batteries in them, rinse and repeat as often as you want if the warning bothers you that much.  I just punch it off with the info button and they still work for years after the warning starts to show.  Cold weather exacerbates the problem.  You may not have a warning in warm weather and then as the temps cool the warning may show up.  Common problem.  Not really an issue.

    Does anyone have the correct part number.  Do you buy them individually or can you get them as a pair.
