Rear Tyre Pressure censor smashed.

Post by DaveW » Tue Mar 27, 2018 6:33 am

Hi All,

I had my rear tyre changed today by a local bIke shop.Ive used them before when I got a puncture.
To help the local bike shop. I decided to go back there to fit a new tyre.

when i went back into pick it up.......They said we have a small issue :oops: OMG... WTF WHAT???
We damaged the tyre censor when taking off the tyre and here are the bits in a plastic bag...

If you haven't seen one, its a wee micro chip and a watch size battery attached.

Bike shop : we have to order you one in If you can bring the bike back when we have it...

When the bike is turned on ,i get a warning "low tyre fault" i push the LHS button to clear from the screen but it comes up in the fault menu.

Question : do you have to have the bike re programmed to remove the fault in the menu ?

Im not happy........

Yes you do, general pressure faults will go away once the tire is inflated, but with a broken or missing sensor you will have to take it to. KTM dealer, and they will turn off the the warning system via a computer link. It can be turned back on again once the wheel sensors are replaced. PS they ain’t cheep.

Hi Dave
I went over to the west coast this weekend and I noticed after a couple of stops the warming triangle and the warning menu disapeared. And up to Kaikoura today still no fault light? Did aprox 900 kms
I have to wait two weeks to get the part in from KTM

I bet they arnt cheap. But I'm not paying for thier mistake.
Due for 15,000 km service soon too
So if the pressure censor needs to be reprogrammed after fitting I will get it done then

Hi Aussie Dave,
I wish it was..... the only thing that gave it away was the broken pieces in a plastic bag :o
turns out that they are now the fools !!!!

Still haven't heard if the part has turned up yet.
