I checked the air after warming it up before riding today and was down to 29 and 30 psi, so I inflated both tires. After I stopped for gas the TPMS light came on, after stopping and restarting it went out, then came on again. Sound familiar? Is there anything I can do about this?

"Cruiseman" has a video on how to disable the idiot light. When it warms up in the shed(spring) I might try it.

I had a similar problem, started last April. Mother replaced the rear sensor two weeks ago due to battery failure. Unfortunately, the front is the same age but they won't fix it until it shows bad on their tester.

It is an outdated system that often requires expensive parts replacement on a regular basis. There is a plug n play sub harness available from one of the trike builders that will disable the light.
Maybe someone else could chime in with phone and part numbers. If memory serves me correctly the cost is about $35.00.
Since I check my tires before each ride and at every fuel stop I do not worry about a system that has proven itself to be more of a bother than an aid.

I would be interested in a plug and play light bypass.

Bob, call Will Wanless at CSC Trikes. He will send you one for $35 plus S&H
Phone # is 434-263-6500 ext# 30. I got one on my bike. Easy to plug in and works great.

Why wouldn't we assume the batteries are going out in one or both sensors?


These sensors take specially-equipped batteries and Fred Harmon @FredH has offered to help folks with their sensors in the past.

Capt. Bob is right. Put the TPMS plug and play in my 2010 wing.Very easy to do. Corrected the problem. Alot easier than splicing wires.:wink2:

Thanks Cap't I will be on the phone Monday to order the plug. I like that idea instead of cutting wires.

Its the Honda extended warranty and it was for the longest term offered, 5 or 7 years.

So back to my question, is the TPMS system covered for the term of the warranty ?

Just prior to me buying my bike last Jan. the original owner had the rear sensor replaced under warranty a few days before the warranty was due to expire. So the answer would be yes to your question based on my experience.

Yes, the TPMS is covered under the Honda Care Protection Plan.

In 2016, I had the TPMS front sending unit, rear sending unit and the receiving unit replaced on my 2009 with the Honda Care Protection Plan.

The bike was almost 7 years old and had 90K miles on it.

Thanks, Honda!
