    Tyre pressure recalibration?
    « on: 2015-06-08 21:13:55 »
    Hi everyone, whilst travelling down the autobahn today I picked up a puncture. Managed to get the bike to the nearest BMW dealership who replaced the rear tyre and inflated it to 36psi.All seemed perfect until three miles from my over night stop in Bonn and the warning light came on again re low pressure in the rear tyre!

    I have checked the tyre and all appears ok, I have also inflated the tyre to 42psi, does anybody know if I need to reset the computer on the bike and if I do how do you do it?

      Not sure but the sensor might have got damaged when they fixed your puncture.

        Hi Royso,  and welcome to the Forum,   RTman10 is spot on,  almost certainly the sensors been damaged during the repair, have your BMW dealer check it out and replace it...... ;)
