TPMS not showing in display??

Post by Cahoots55 »

Hi all I am a new owner question. The RT is 2016 that I just percasted this month. Have owned a bunch Beemers but nothing this high tech. My question is the TPMS tire pressure display on the dash. There is no display of the tire pressure front or rear not sure how to turn it on the display or are the battery dead? or operator that wondering how its displayed. The Owner's Manual is not clear to me. I don't have the 2 crescent shaped symbols or a reading. Love the bike so far. Help Please!!!!!!! Steve

Are you sure you bike has them fitted. Some countries TPMS was a extra.
Trust me I am a retired Doctor and lecturer at Oxford University of Structural and Mechanical/Electrical engineering.

^^^ this. If they were fitted and the batteries were flat you'd get a warning triangle on the dash.
The GS 'is' the better bike :-)

On my 2016 RT the tire pressures are displayed by: press the “Menu” button until you get to the “Info” screen. Using the wonder wheel scroll until to see “Tire Pressure”. Hope this helps.
