I don't know about these per say, but I did change the batteries on the sensors for my GSA when I had it. Not too hard and a LOT cheaper, but you have to place it in your head to be prepared to fork over the money anyway in case it doesn't work. There were a couple YouTube videos that showed the process. I would try to change the battery before I bought a new one and went through the hassle of programing/syncing it to the bike, if at all possible.


Good luck!

I changed my sensors last year when they were going bad, under warranty. I saved the old sensors. The battery is under some urethane and can be dug out with a dremel tool and replaced and then re-sealed. There's some video on youtube.

There is no hassle programming/syncing new sensors to the bike. Just put them in and ride the bike for 4-5 miles. They will sync up on their own. I know because I've done it.

My 2012 will be getting new tires this month and even though the sensors are working, I'm thinking that it would be prudent to replace them. Has anyone had one fail? What year was your bike? What do new ones cost?

Comparing to my car, 10 year old Infiniti has the original pressure sensors without a issue, i would think a bike would do the same? I've never replaced a battery either. Now I'm jinxed

@DanDiver How often do you replace tires? If it is every year or less, I would wait it out. What's the worst that could happen, a tpms warning light for a while? But if you replace tires every 4 years, maybe it would be worth it. On cars, designed for 9-10 years, can go in 6 or last 12 though. Not sure on these...

New pressure sensors

My rear failed and then my front within a week of each other. I have an 18 GTL. They failed at about 13-14 months with 18,000 miles or so. Replaced under warranty. No reason given by the dealer for why mine failed so soon.

I have got to believe what they aren't telling you is that the sensors put in as OEM are made in China, just like those you can buy directly for less than 10% of what an OEM sensor costs.

I wrote up my experience with purchasing $18.50 sensors from China here: PRESSURE SENSORS, post #27. I suggest searching for YEOPEI 8532732" I don't know if YEOPEI sells them anymore, but you can still find them by searching for "Pressure Sensors 8532732". I have had nothing but good result with these.

Couple days ago my sensors were very slow to read out. The rear didnít read for long enough time to show up as warning on dash. I am going to watch for a while before doing anything. Is this a sign of near failure? Where are good sources for replacement sensor?
