Are the TPMS over sensitive on the new wings? I filled up my tires at 70f unridden in my garage. The front at 37 lbs and when I go to ride the bike in 60f weather the light is on saying that it only has 32 lbs.
The TPMS used to bug me.
I'd leave the house at 38 ids on a 80 deg. day and the temperature would spike to 90 - 95 deg. And the TPMS would show tire presure at 45 lbs. an hour later I hit a small rain shower and the TPMS dropped to 30 lbs.
Just the nature of the beast, I guess.
id want the reading to be what the tire is experiencing, not what the ambient temp is...in other words, i want to see the reading when im double up on 100 degree day in the desert...no?That is the cool thing about the sensors on my GSA, and I can't explain it exactly but they show the pressure based on normal ambient temperature, not what the pressure is due to heating while you ride.

Since I am also coming from BMWs I thought that I would ask the question. The BMW TPMS takes account of the temperature and adjusts so you don't get as many false readings.Yes the TMPS is over sensitive, after a while you just get used to the flashing yellow light daily in the morning in cooler temps, after a few miles the tires heat up and it goes away. This is one area where BMW Motorcycles give you a lot more leeway, my BMW shows similar temp differences in cooler mornings but it doesn't flash a warning just because the pressure is off a few PSI.
Tire and tire sidewall flexing while rolling is the primary factor that causes the tire pressure to increase.I "think" the temperature of the asphalt or concrete is what builds the pressure in the tires. The only time I will adjust the preasure when I'm on a ride is below 32 and above 44 PSI.
Not sure that is necessary, but that's just me..
