My rear TPMS has been playing up since ANZAC Day. I've asked the dealer to check it out every time I've been in there since then but the mechanics just write on the form that the red light means the pressure is down. Thats it.

My warranty runs out late December so when the bike went in two weeks ago I wrote up a letter to the service manager describing the fault that I was getting and how it could not be low pressure. He was welcoming of the letter and took it straight to their guy who oversees warranty stuff. From there it goes to Polaris etc.

The outcome is that they replaced the sensor under warranty.

Trouble is, it looks like they didn't pair it to the bike as it's not giving me any psi number. So, back it goes on Monday for a bit more tech work.
Cheers, Kim.

It's good that Polaris/Indian Australia did the right thing but bad that the dealer didn't install it correctly. At least it doesn't keep you off the bike.

I took the bike in yesterday and they paired the new sensor to the bike right away. The service manager was onto it immediately. He spoke to the guy who installed it and found he hadn't fitted a new sensor before, only replaced the same sensor in the original wheel if their bead breaker dislodges it when fitting a new tyre. He didn't realise that a new sensor needed to be paired.

The problem I was getting with the sensor was that it was often dropping contact with the bike and the warning light popping up. I'd click through the readout to see the front wheel with a psi number but dashes for the rear. Then, anything from ten minutes to an hour later, it would connect again and give me a psi for the rear wheel but the warning light would stay on until I turned the bike off. This would happen several times a day. I took photos of the readout with good pressure for both wheels and the light on and showed them to the service manager. He'd never seen that happen before. Between the photos and the letter I'd written describing the problem, he was very supportive of a warranty replacement.

Hi Doc. It's happened to me quite often where the rear sensor loses contact for a while. I have a couple of new TPMS units to put on next service with new tyres. Hopefully, that will fix it for good.

My TPMS is either my right or left boot.

When your boot tells you that the tyre pressure is down five times a day, do you check it with a pressure gauge? 🙂

no mate. Just change shoes to get a more accurate reading.

Hm, I've been reading this with interest (not that I have a TPMS on my bikes) but now I am confused.

How do you check a boot with a pressure gauge??  Does it affect the check depending on the left or right foot???

its easy Croc. Leather boots are good for a range of 2-3 psi accuracy of the tyre pressure. If you want a more accurate reading I suggest sneakers pre 85. Better materials and a softer feel.

You don't do it in crocs? Something is wrong with this picture. 🙃
