    Hi all, anyone have this problem? I have an electric pump in my saddle bag and got the fault After I filled the tires. I am trying some higher settings: 38 FRONT / 40 REAR

    I trust the pump to be within 1-2psi. The read-out on the instrument panel reports F33 / R34 after rolling down the road for a couple of minutes.

    It was more accurate before today. And the warning still comes on at these reasonable pressures!
    There isn't much about warning ranges in the manual.

    Any info I can get would be great - let me know.


    Thanks, Ed.

    Did you check the pressures with another gage to confirm?

    Put the bike on its center stand and remove the valve cores to let all of the air out. Replace the cores and refill to 50 lbs and then set the air where you want it. It cycles the pressure sensor and may correct the problem. Happened to me once

    Thanks Steve! The gauge on my MotoPump is now about 8psi off to the negative side. I'm pissed, but glad it works and I will carry the standard gauge as well.

    And Capo, great tip there as well!

    So earlier this year I realized my motopump wasn't pushing the core all the way in on my 1190s. I called motopump and they had me file down the brass connector so that it engaged the valve correctly. They told me some of they had seen this happen on some of the TPMS.
